Our Mission

Wright-Way Rescue seeks to reduce the number of homeless adoptable pets euthanized in the Midwest each year through an adoption program, community education, promotion of spaying and neutering, and a shelter medicine outreach program.

History Of WWR

Wright-Way Rescue began it's efforts in 2003 as a small grass roots organization trying to make a difference in the lives of dogs and cats found at animal control facilities in rural Southern IL. Over 90% of animals at these organizations were being euthanized. Many of these animals were young puppies and kittens that were killed due to lack of space, adoptive homes, and awareness. Very few rescue groups were helping these rural areas and pets found in these facilities had little hope of ever finding homes no matter how adoptable they were. It became evident that help was desperately needed not only in Southern IL but in much of the rural Midwest where these facilities exist. Based on our belief that every life is valuable and deserves respect, Wright-Way Rescue began it's mission - to save homeless adoptable pets. - - - - > READ MORE
