I’ve adopted five dogs from Animal Education and Rescue. Sandy and her team are unbelievably caring and selfless. I can’t thank them enough for helping all of the animals and humans they do.

We adopted a puppy from AEAR and they were great to deal with. Our puppy was really healthy and well loved when we picked her up. We highly recommend adopting from AEAR!!

One of the best animal rescue organizations between Chicago and Milwaukee. Not only do they run a rescue including dogs, cats, birds, small pets and exotics, but they also are involved in humane investigations and community education and youth programs. Animal Education and Rescue is extremely transparent in what goes into operating their non-profit and has a very active social media presence. They do their best to match the right animals with the right homes to make for lasting relationships. Some poor reviews are the result of upset people not being able to adopt an animal which was either no longer available or simply not the right fit for their household or lifestyle. AEAR is great and I've recommended them to many friends and coworkers. Check them out on facebook or at one of their public informational events or animal meet and greets!

Every interaction with this group has been positive and heartwarming! Not only do they care about animals, but they also care about the community! They are incredibly hard working and make sure to do what is right for the animals! I highly recommend them!!

I love seeing another have negative reviews. That lets me know its not just me. We were looking for a new kitten and found Animal Education and Rescue on Petfinders. We had been looking for a new kitten to join our family for a while. I saw Blossom here and fell in love. After much coordination, we met at Petsmart Vernon Hills only to find out that Blossom was no longer available because her FOSTER decided at the last minute to keep her. I was pretty upset. WHO DOES THAT??? A little heads up much??? So in looking at the other kittens there, my Daughter fell in love with a beautiful kitten in any standards. She is only about 6 weeks, according to our vet, although they say she was 8 weeks. She doesn't have one of her eyes. Its completely closed and our vet said there is no eye there. None the less, we thought she was beautiful and decided we would adopted her as long as all of our credentials were approved. Kloe, one of the workers for the company said " I was so worried she would never get adopted" and we were excited to take home not one but two kittens.. My Son was falling in love with another kitten they named Tootsie. She was so sweet and my son fell in love.. As you know, these adoption places dont only care for the sick kittens, but do look to recoup a bit of the money put in. And I cant blame them for that. But when you adopt under the pretenses that the animal is what they say, you should get what you are asking for. Not a kitten that isn't trained properly. I was told Tootsie was littler trained and eating solid food. We brought the poor sick eyed kitty home, with her eyes all a blister and tried to help and nurser. This company told me the medication to put in her eye. Did not even give me a sample of it to start out with since it was a Saturday and I couldn't get the meds. There is so much more to say about this company but I am exasted. It frustrates me, the more I type, the more I realize the negative things they have done.

I was referred to this place by an old friend. I had a pup that I could not keep because my lease said so. I met up with the woman, signed the paperwork and said goodbye to my Paco...I explained that we had kept Paco in our basement (which is finished) most of the time and that I did let him upstairs and outside. We all loved him very much and wanted the best for him. I checked in on their page to see if he had been adopted, and thankfully he was! Now, I DO have a problem with the horrible accusations made towards me. They made it out as if I was abusing him and kept him locked in a crate, which was totally false! HE would keep going to his crate to sleep, which I’m sure made him comfortable. They also stated that I scolded him for peeing and pooping in his crate...again, FALSE! I did mention to them that he wasn’t housetrained and had a few accidents in the house , that was all! Where did they get this from??? He also stated that I was trying to sell him on craigslist, again, FALSE! I posted on my personal Facebook page but if anyone was interested in adopting him to let me know. (I have many friends who love animals and would’ve loved to take him in.) I had no idea that in return of turning over my puppy to these that they would bash me. I AM going to take action against them, because this is considered defamation. I am very disappointed and will do whatever I can to expose this place.
