About One Tail at Time & Dog Restaurant Week.

One Tail at a Time, is a no-kill, 501(c)3 all-breed dog rescue that serves to lower euthanasia rates in the greater Chicagoland area and provide education on the humane treatment of companion animals. The rescue concentrates its efforts on dogs that are in danger of being euthanized, or those that are physically and/or mentally deteriorating in a shelter environment, works to rehabilitate them, and then matches each dog with a permanent home. Focused on keeping pets as a part of our family, One Tail at a Time offers fosters and adopters continued support and education on how best to keep dogs happy, healthy and bonded for life.

Dog Restaurant Week is a one-of-a-kind event combining Chicago’s love for food and passion for pets to raise money for Chicagoland rescue group, One Tail at a Time. During Dog Restaurant Week, our partner restaurants graciously donate a portion of their sales - 8% for gold tier partners, 5% for silver, and $500 pledge for bronze - to our cause.
