We got our lovely bunny from Red Door. The staff was helpful and knowledgable, and they were great with our scheduling needs. (My daughter fell in love with our bunny, but we couldn't take her home for several weeks.)
They really work to socialize their animals and provide them with toys and adequate space. They also help guide you to animals that fit your needs. They know their animals, so they can let you know if one nips or is has special needs. I raised rabbits as a child, and I've never had less work getting a rabbit used to being touched or moved--they clearly interact with their animals.
My daughter enjoyed the experience of choosing our rabbit so much, we are thinking of volunteering together.
We started out adopting a rabbit from Red Door and were so impressed by the shelter that we ended up volunteering. This is a fabulous shelter mostly because it is run by people who really care about every animal who comes through the door.
Got a wonderful rabbit here with help and advice from staff that continued throughout my pet's lifetime.
I've adopted two rabbits from this shelter. It is always clean, the animals well cared for, and the staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeble.
Red Door is a no-kill shelter in the Chicago-land area that takes in sick and injured cats, dogs, and rabbits, rehabilitates them and has a thorough application process to ensure that they go to good forever homes. They also do a great job and spend a lot of time educating the public on the responsibilities of pet ownership. I adopted my two rabbits from here and could not be happier.
The animals are so well care for and flourishing with the love and attention each pet is given. The staff and volunteers are well educated and very hard working. I'm so grateful for this organization.
One of the few shelters in the Midwest that also takes in exotic animals, especially rabbits. Their treatment of rabbits, education of new adopters, and rescue of rabbits dumped on the street and at kill shelters is exemplary.
This little neighborhood shelter is a pure miracle. In a city of over three million, Red Door is the only shelter that adopts out rabbits. From rescuing rabbits turned into other shelters to organizing rescues of rabbits tossed outside, this place never stops. The cats it serves are well-cared for, happy, and loved, and its network of dog fosters is phenomenal. The fundraisers are beyond brilliant, including spa days with themed glamor shots that are genius. The education and outreach is tremendous, as is their enthusiasm. My rabbits and I say THANK YOU, RED DOOR!!!
If there was a level 6, I'd choose it. Their dedication to all animals goes way beyond above and beyond. They are not only a no kill shelter that also takes bunnies and birds, but they go cageless as much as possible, and have the most amazing volunteers that dash into the fray to help an animal in need. I love Red Door with a passion!
I volunteered for Red Door the year I lived in Chicago. Not only are the people there dedicated and passionate about rescuing bunnies (and cats, and dogs, and chickens, and ducks...) they are extremely generous with their knowledge and welcoming to those who want to help out. I've been proud to support them financially, too.
Red Door Animal Shelter located in Chicago is dedicated to the care, health and welfare of cats, rabbits and dogs. The people at this shelter bring the animals to the vet regularly and do their ver best to place animals with the appropriate adopters. Red Door has regular fundraisers in order to raise funds and awareness of proper treatment and care of animals. I have even seen them take in a rooster, some chickens and other farm animals that do not do well in a city environment. I give this place 5 stars only because 10 stars in not an option.
My family has adopted 2 rabbits and a dog from Red Door. All of their animals are well cared for and receive all the proper medical attention they require. They are active in the community to save abandoned or lost animals. They are educators to adoptive families and local communities about animal care and responsible pet ownership. They also host great events that the entire family can enjoy while helping Red Door raise funds to care for their animals.
But mostly, they have the best volunteers. They are dedicated and loving and lots of fun to be around. I give to Red Door whenever I can and always recommend them for someone looking to adopt a new pet.
I am continually amazed by the dedication of the staff and volunteers at Red Door. These folks go to great lengths to protect and care for animals of all kinds.
We give regularly to Red Door because of the wonderful work they do. In a very limited space, they are able to care for and find homes for so many animals. Their staff is so dedicated and they work tirelessly to help every animal they come in contact with. They are a no-kill shelter, which is big in our book.
I have volunteered with Red Door Animal Shelter for many years. The people who work there and/or volunteer there, are a very dedicated group looking out for the welfare of cats, rabbits, dogs and even the occasional chicken, or duck. They do an excellent job with limited funds, and the shelter is a wonderful non-profit to be involved in. Not only have I volunteered there, but I have adopted a cat and dog from there, and can't imagine my life without those two fur babies.
The dedication and perseverance of this mostly volunteer run shelter is beyond impressive. It is a small no-kill shelter that does unbelievable work year after year with very limited resources. Amazing organization.
Red Door is run by some of the most selfless, passionate, and dedicated people I know. We adopted our rabbit there 7 years ago, and my sister has adopted 4 of her rabbits there (yes, we are rabbit people). The shelter is cage-free, which optimizes the chances that a cat or rabbit will be more easily adopted out (no cage = friendlier pets). They also assist low-income families so they can keep their pets, and routinely set up search parties if a stray rabbit or cat has been spotted outside. I could never do this job because it would tear at my heart strings too badly, but thank God the people at Red Door have the strength and compassion to do it instead.
