Leia's Hope Canine Rescue - Decatur, IL

Leia’s Hope Canine Rescue is a foster based rescue located in Decatur IL. 

Leia’s Hope was originally started not as a rescue, but as a voice to save a dog named Leia from being euthanized at a local animal control facility. We were successful in placing Leia in a great rescue that could take care of her needs. It wasn’t until months later that Leia’s Hope Canine Rescue was established in hopes of being that rescue for dogs like Leia at risk of euthanasia. We chose to focus on senior and special need dogs as they are often the first to be euthanized when space becomes an issue at animal control facilities. Senior dogs make some of the best pets! There is no greater love than that of a senior dog.

Leia’s Hope is a volunteer-run rescue organization. All of our dogs are housed in foster homes where they receive all the love and medical care they need. We rescue dogs from animal control facilities, breeders retiring their parent dogs, and local owners who can no longer care for their dogs. All dogs are fully vetted receiving appropriate vaccines, spay/neuter, microchipped, heart worm and flea prevention and anything else deemed essential for good quality of life. We love our dogs like family and want the very best for them! Thank you for considering Leia’s Hope for your next family member!
