B.O.N.A.F.I.E.D (Bring out Natural Abilities Found in Every Dog) is an all-breed Rescue whose goal is to match orphaned dogs with loving families.
Bonafied is a dog rescue organization based in Ogle County, IL. We are dedicated to rescuing orphaned dogs left homeless through no fault of their own. We are 501(c)3 certified.
We place dogs in loving, responsible, committed, permanent homes. Bonafied enlists a comprehensive adoption process which includes taking considerable care in finding great matches and educating prospective adopters regarding the responsibilities and costs of bringing a dog into their lives. Animals in our care are spayed or neutered, receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment, and placed in nurturing foster homes while they await placement in their forever homes. We assist dogs in distress without regard to age, breed, or ease of placement. To the extent our finances allow, dogs in the greatest need take priority.
Bonafied remains interested in and committed to the welfare of the dog beyond the adoption process.
Our goal is educating and encouraging responsible pet ownership with an emphasis on the need for spaying and neutering. We also do our best to break down the stereotypes of many "bully" breeds.
Our volunteers work diligently to provide each dog with any training needs prior to going to their forever homes. We practice the dog's training accomplishments with the adopters prior to releasing the dog into their care. This helps to ensure clear lines of communication between dog and humans
B.O.N.A.F.I.E.D (Bring Out Natural Abilities Found In Every Dog) strives to raise awareness and educate people regarding the overpopulation of dogs and the desperate need for homes for these animals who would otherwise be euthanized.
