If it was possible to rate Forever Husky, Inc. higher, I would. This organization always goes well above and beyond to help dogs that are in need not only locally, but nationally as well. So many dogs across the country would have never have had a second chance without Forever Husky. Outside of always being open to helping, they do everything by the books and the way it should be done to provide transparency so you know everything is 100% about the dogs. Far too many rescues today only take in dogs to "flip" them for profit, but Forever Husky turly does their best to rehabilitate dogs, both physically and mentally, as well as educate the community about the breed. One of the very best organizations I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Highly recommended.

My previous experience volunteering with a local organization was negative. In fact, it was horrible. Honestly, I didn’t think I would ever consider doing it again. But, being a part of Forever Husky has changed that to positive. It’s awesome to be contributing to an organization that is truly making a difference locally and nationally in so many ways.

Organizations struggle without good leadership. But, with Forever Husky, the positivity starts at the top. It’s refreshing to be part of a team that has vision, direction, communication, and collaboration. When you’re working together, toward a common goal with those things in place it’s easy to move forward as a team, to keep taking action, and making a difference.

It has been just over two months since adopting Timber from Forever Husky and we are a great fit. She's sweet and fun, and makes me laugh every day. I am grateful to Forever Husky for the work they do, especially to the "foster patents" for all the time they invest.
Thanks for a great friend!

Started as a volunteer, and eventually became a foster myself. I have to say that Firever Husky makes sure that every dog is treated with love and respect, receives the best medical treatment if necessary, and to goes to great events to finds a safe and loving home for every single dog under its care!

There just aren't enough positive words to describe Forever Husky! They are truly committed to the breed, and there individual needs. They don't even stop with there own rescue I have seen them reach out and help other Northern breed rescues. I can't imagine how heartbreaking seeing some of the furkids that come in, but it seems Lance is a glass half full kind of person. They do there best and it shows!

Forever Husky is one amazing organization!! They are very passionate in what they do. The dedication they have in saving these beautiful dog's lives is remarkable. Their number one goal is getting these dogs a forever home, not only that they deserve, but one that will be the best fit for them, as well as their new owner. Lance, (owner/founder) of forever husky is one of the most genuine people I have ever met. He wants nothing but the best for every one of these dogs, to the point of going that extra mile to ensure they will have a wonderful life, that these dogs beyond deserve.

Speaking from personal experience...
I got my boy Jesse in July, 2014. He pretty much fell in my lap. I was on my computer when I somehow stumbled upon forever husky. I noticed they were based close to my old hometown, Elgin. Although I wasn't necessarily looking for a husky at that given point in time, I filled out an application, listed my references, and gave them my "dream dog" list of what I was looking for in a Husky. After reviewing their current rescue dogs, I came across Jesse's page, and instantly knew he was the one! It's funny because although Jesse didn't exactly match up to my initial "list," I just knew I had to adopt him, and so thankful I did. Jesse is one most amazing dogs I have ever had the privilege on owning and we are so blessed to have him in our lives! It's crazy to think he was ever a stray and amazes me on how wonderful he is knowing that fact. Stumbling on Jesse's profile, It's like we were both meant to cross paths and end up in each others lives. He is very intelligent (w/ little work, learns tricks easily), very loyal, loves to play, and a huge ball of love! Our main concern about adopting was the fact we had a 7-week year old kitten when we got Jesse (4yrs. old), and huskies tend to be prey driven so of course that worried us. Nothing to worry about on that end! They are best of friends (to point out kitten Dane will eat/drink out of Jesse's food/water bowl at same time lol). Jesse is a dominant dog, which I personally like, but is so sweet as to wouldn't harm a fly.

Bottom line, if you are considering about adopting, don't hesitate. These dogs are as wonderful as any of the dogs you would find at your local breeder, and the best part is you are saving a beautiful life. The feeling you will receive on that alone is very satisfying, but the love your rescue dog will give back is irreplaceable. I couldn't imagine my life now without Jesse. I hope that everyone can experience the joy I have felt in adopting one of these amazing dogs from ForeverHusky!!!

Forever Husky is an amazing organization. Lance is very personable and will do whatever it takes to ensure these dogs have the best life possible!!!

So stop thinking about adopting, and just do! You won't regret!! Forever Husky is not just an organization, it's an extended family!! Thank you for saving lives just like Jesse!!

Forever Husky, Inc. is a wonderful organization. We have been working with Lance for almost a year now. He is very diligent about the care of their dogs. We have transported several medical cases to him in Illinois. He does not hesitate to get them in to the Vet if anyone notices an issue. He always responds promptly when contacted. Our volunteer company performs due diligence on all of our clients, Forever Husky passed our checks easily.

Forever Husky is a very well run rescue that is knowledgeable in the breed and stands behind the dogs they save. Lance is very helpful and always ready to offer advice on the challenges of the breed as well as help those huskies in need no matter how near or far. I am very grateful to Lance and all he and Forever Husky have done to help huskies coming from various situations. Lance has a true respect, understanding and love of the breed.

First things first, Forever Husky is facilitated by some of the most inspirational human beings I have ever met in my life. I have had the opportunity to attend a few fundraisers ran by Forever Husky and was completely taken back. Not only do they exude passion through their words but they prove it with their actions. The hard-work, dedication and passion the organizers have is tear jerking. Never have I ever been so influenced by a nonprofit in my life. I will continue to support and educate others on this fabulous nonprofit. To all that volunteer, run and work with Forever Husky, keep up the amazing work! :)

The first sentence of their mission statement couldn't be more true. A beautiful soul living in a fluffy white body was saved and so was mine. This rescue went above and beyond but was ethical and helpful beyond imagination. I am many states away and received help by every form of communication anytime I needed it. We have kept in contact and I know if I need anything I can count on them. They didn't just find a dog a home... but I found a connection for advice from a group of people who put the animal's needs first and foremost.

I also can say that in my belief anyone who claims to take money for a donation of any sort should have nothing to hide and that is the complete case for this rescue. Every penny can be accounted for by the general public, where it went and how it was spent. This absolutely fascinates me.

I wish I lived much closer so I could volunteer my time. Kudos to you guys!

As a volunteer new to the process of fostering dogs I found the people working with this rescue very supportive and ethical. Having previous experience as a volunteer with other groups who I sometimes questioned for their motives I never have felt that way with Forever Husky. I have fostered 3 dogs with this group, none of them easy dogs to place for one reason or another but they never gave up on the dog and supported me along the way. With eventual furever homes the rescue continues to provide support to adopters which is critical to success. They are creative with their outreach and fundraising as well. The volunteer base is committed not just to the dogs but also to those that support the rescue industry and are working to be a different type of rescue.
