Founded in 2017, Bonafied (Bring Out Natural Abilities Found in Every Dog) is an all breed rescue based in Ogle County, IL whose goal is to match orphaned dogs with loving families. Bonafied enlists a comprehensive adoption process which includes taking considerable care in finding great matches and educating prospective adopters regarding the responsibilities of bringing a dog into their lives. Animals in our care are spayed or neutered, receive appropriate veterinary care, and placed in nurturing foster homes until we can find 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. We remain interested and committed to our dogs beyond the adoption process, as they are always a part of our Bonafied family. 

Our Mission

Bonafied's goal is to educate and encourage responsible pet ownership with an emphasis on the needs for spaying and neutering. We hope to break the stereotypes of many "bully" breeds, and raise awareness regarding the overpopulation of dogs and the desperate need for homes of these animals that would otherwise be euthanized. We do our best to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the animals in our care until we can give them what every pet deserves - a forever home. 

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.
