Wright-Way Rescue has been a pioneer in the field of animal welfare for over 17 years when they began rescuing homeless animals from poor, rural areas and finding them loving forever homes. The problem of pet overpopulation in Rural America is dire and virtually undocumented, and they believe that helping these remote communities is critical to the national No-Kill movement. They work with over 100 rescue partners throughout the rural Midwest, South, and Southeast to save well over 5,000 lives every year on approximately 10% of the budget of similarly sized organizations. They are committed to stretching every donated “dollar” as far as it can go.
They drive over 100,000 miles every year to save the lives of homeless pets who are at risk of euthanasia, abandonment, or worse. Their robust transport program was once criticized by industry insiders but is now talked about as the future of rescue. They have always believed that More Is Possible, and we wholeheartedly agree with Orville Wright’s statement, “If we worked on the assumption that what is accepted as true really is true, then there would be little hope for advance.”
Wright-Way Rescue operates on a unique model to save lives. Animals come to their Admissions Center located in Southern Illinois where they receive complete medical care before travelling to their main adoption center in Chicago. Their program is founded on strong shelter medicine, and, to that end, we run a Critical Care Center near their Admissions Center that is designed to address highly contagious but treatable diseases such as parvovirus, distemper, and sarcoptic mange. They have a satellite adoption center located at Lambs Farm, a non-profit dedicated to helping adults with disabilities lead happy and productive lives. They also have a small adoption center at their Admissions Center, and they are in the process of developing foster programs in two other states. In addition, they engage thousands of volunteers every year as fosters, dog walkers, cat entertainers, and much needed shelter helpers.
To them, animal welfare is foundational to building compassionate communities, and that is their dream. Won't you join them?
