Found Chicago Boarding and Training Center is a nonprofit Chicago dog adoption center which rescues, rehabilitates, and rehomes abandoned dogs in addition to offering dog daycare, boarding, training, and grooming. The center is accredited by several dog training agencies, including the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, Canine Good Citizen, the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers, and the National Association of Canine Scent Work.

This dog boarding and adoption center includes Heal, a veterinary clinic, and Stay, a dog hotel. Found Chicago has 49 kennels and three playroom/training centers for homeless dogs, and is a no-kill, all-breed rescue center that works with behaviorally challenged and disabled dogs which may be euthanized by other centers. Adoptions require the completion of a training class.

Stay, A Modern Dog Hotel is located on the Found Chicago campus and is specialized for dogs that are fearful, aggressive, or would not perform well in a traditional boarding facility. Their services include individual and group play times, quiet rooms, and both indoor and outdoor play facilities. Found Chicago also has specialized daycare for fearful, aggressive, or shy dogs, including quiet time in individual rooms and one-on-one playtime. Their veterinary hospital, Heal, works with both cats and dogs. Found Chicago's training sessions include six week sessions, once a week, and cover several elements of obedience. They also offer a boot camp, for more intensive issues, or private sessions.
