The Buddy Foundation

Our Pet List


PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM BUDDY : WE HAVE A HOME! Our dream for over 13 years has been to build a sanctuary where our animals may live until they can find their forever home. We are very pleased to announce that we finished our shelter building at 65 W Seegers Road in Arlington Heights. Now more than ever though, we need your help. We are seeking people to help sponsor our building needs. We have lots of ways for you to help. One way is thru our brick walkway. You can purchase a brick with your family, company or pet's name engraved on the brick. Your brick will be a permanent way of showing your support of our animals. Bricks start at $100.00. Please call 847-290-5806 and ask for one of our building sponsor consultants. Sincerely, The Buddy Foundation

Who We Are

The Buddy Foundation of Arlington Heights, Illinois was established by the concerned and caring animal lovers from Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs, based on the necessity for a quality no-kill animal shelter. We are strictly an all volunteer organization with all funding, from adoption fees to our many fundraisers, benefiting the animals in our care. The Buddy Foundation is dedicated to finding permanent, loving, responsible homes for the dogs/puppies and cats/kittens that we foster. Our goal is to help them become cherished family members and receive the attention and gentle kindness they so deserve. Most of our animals were found strayed or abandoned in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. We are a small shelter with limited resources. Thus, we do not like to take in unwanted pets. Instead, we encourage pet owners to be committed to their pets by providing them with a safe & secure home for their lifetime.

Adopting a friend

Our animals are veterinarian checked, given the appropriate shots, spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and placed in the loving care of either our shelter or a foster home. By placing our animals in foster homes or in the shelter, they are given all the attention, security, people contact and family environment they need. The foster parents get to know the animal and its personality which helps them in finding a new home that is compatible with the animal. Our foster parents are also able to assist you by answering questions on the care and needs of your newly adopted pet.
