Our Mission


To mobilize the REALTOR® community to
address and impact the plight of homeless pets.

Realtors® to the Rescue was founded in 2005 by Suzy Thomas, a REALTOR® from Dreamtown.
Originally, Suzy’s vision was to empower REALTORS® to find homes for pets in need. The organization has since expanded its efforts, and now, in addition to pairing pets and owners, it supports shelters and pet rescue organizations.

An enormous boost came in 2009, when RTTR was chosen as one of the official programs of the Chicago Association of REALTORS®. Through this partnership, and with the assistance of a strong network of volunteers, RTTR has broadened its charitable reach and magnified its successes.

Why Join RTTR?

By becoming a RTTR member, you're supporting an organization that bolsters shelter and rescue groups throughout Chicago. We assist dozens of organizations, and with your membership, you can aid all of them instead of just one.
