The Chicago Rescue Roundtable is an informal gathering of rescue groups, shelters and animal advocates in Chicagoland that gather information to make our communities safer for companion animals. Our “Vote Pet Friendly Chicago” project is designed to inform voters on how their representatives feel about companion animal welfare. We urge Chicago residents to take an active role in making our communities safer for animals, and to work with their representatives to make positive changes.

Vote Pet Friendly Chicago Survey
Our 2016 Vote Pet Friendly Chicago survey was sent to each city council member in Chicago. See the survey here. Based on how each city council member answered, we rated them. Council members who received 5 paws were rated the most pet friendly, and 1 paw the least.
These City Council members were rated very pet friendly!
