Wild Birds Unlimited promotes the health of avian species at more than 275 locations throughout the country. Rockford owners Robert and Carol Bailey supply customers with the products and advice they need to transform outdoor spaces into chirp-filled habitats. Nutritious bird foods attract flying locals with seed blends that are formulated to the tastes of area species. Bird feeders can draw specific types of feathered friends, such as the Dinner Bell, which is known to lure cardinals, mockingbirds, and baby pterodactyls to lawns. Rockford's Wild Birds Unlimited promotes environmental responsibility with high-efficiency light bulbs, a high-efficiency rooftop, and extensive recycling practices.

In 1990, the owners of Summerfield Farm set aside part of their grounds and turned it into a zoo. Since then, they have introduced countless visitors to some 200- plus animals: monkeys, camels, zebras, and mountain lions, just to name a few. While Summerfield offers a unique, intimate viewing experience to guests across its 17-acre facility, the staff also showcases up-close interactions during animal encounter presentations. Summerfield Zoo also has a petting zoo, and visitors can ride ponies and feed baby goats with bottles.

Just like at the finest dining establishments, the dog meals at Wiggle Waggles are made fresh to order. Owners beg for scraps as their pups push their noses into healthy servings of muttloaf and turkey quiche, made with organic ingredients and without added salt or sugar. For dessert, dogs sate themselves with one of the bakery's hand-crafted treats, which are also organic and preservative free, and come in flavors such as reduced-fat cheese, turkey bacon, and peanut butter. They enjoy their treats perched at one of the lime-green cubes that bring pooches up to table level, or take them home to enjoy in front of the television. The eatery also caters puppy birthday parties complete with a custom organic cake, and provides pet-care services such as dog walking and sitting.

Now celebrating its 40th anniversary, Save-A-Pet runs a purely no-kill, nondiscriminatory adoption center for dogs and cats of all breeds, ages, and health statuses, with the ultimate goal of finding permanent homes for each rescued animal. When the center receives homeless pets, the staff feeds them and provides intake exams, vaccinations, and medications. A steady supply of volunteers plays with the pets and ensures that they get enough outdoor exercise to maintain their health and mental well-being, backing this goal up inside by changing the cat litter and power-washing the 82 onsite kennels every day. Save-A-Pet also reaches out to adult and youth community members with education on animal welfare to reduce the number of homeless and euthanized pets. Through the organization’s efforts it has placed more than 40,000 dogs and cats into permanent homes.

Angie Schuldies and Nate Mathis have always loved having pet dogs and cats. Eventually, they extended their care and attention to animals outside their homes by working with rescue groups and fostering dogs. This consistent volunteerism fueled their vision of one day owning a doggy daycare—a dream realized by The Dog Haus. During daytime sessions, pups romp together in an indoor play area supervised by animal-loving caretakers. Besides overseeing the fun, the staff trains furry companions, working to refine their manners and social skills, such as mastering a firm pawshake while maintaining eye contact. For dogs needing overnight accommodation, the boarding program available at their 410 Atlas Avenue location welcomes them to socialize and exercise during the day and snooze in a private kennel at night. Larger kennels can accommodate family packs. Additional services include petsitting, transportation, and grooming.
