Famous Fido Rescue


How the auction began:

When the economy became tight, Famous Fido Rescue needed a way to support the rescue. A dream became a reality and Famous Fido's Little Treasures Auction was born. By obtaining donations from businesses and faithful friends, we were able to bring in much needed money to operate our rescue and continue to save more animals from certain death that many of them face in open - door shelters in the Chicago-land area.

Why is the auction important?

Our goal is very simple: To provide a temporary, yet comfortable home for rescue animals while we find them a loving, permanent home. The auction funds a growing veterinary bill, while also supplying the animals with a constant stream of healthy and nourishing meals and treats. These animal crave tender loving care and companionship, which we strive to provide.

How can I help?

Everyone has new or gently used items that they don't need. Famous Fido and the rescue animals appreciate your donation of these items towards the online auction. Without your help, the auction would cease to exist and the rescue would suffer. We accept everything from jewelry to furniture to clothing. If you are not sure if we can use your items, please don't hesitate to give us a call and ask. If you have items for the online auction, you may bring them to the rescue at 5430 N. Clark St., Chicago, IL 60640 or ask about delivery pick-up possibilities for large items. You may also take photos of your items and send them to us to feature online and ship them yourself to the buyer for shipping reimbursement through the rescue. We have many option and are very grateful for your contribution. Please remember that all donations are tax deductible and you should ask for a receipt at the time of your donation.

Famous Fido Rescue is in need of Donations for Auction:

We sell donated goods at auction (in-person, on facebook, and on eBay) in order to generate income for the rescue and its operations. We are interested in any items such as: electronics, designer clothing, brand-name items, video games, books (especially animal-related books and cookbooks), pet items, antiques, tools, artwork, shoes, etc. The dogs we have in-house are in need of basic care daily and we are in taking new animals every week with not enough being adopted.

All of the proceeds from the auction go to our rescues animals care. Without you they would never have their second chance.
