We usually have dogs, cats, kittens, and lots of mixed breed puppies for adoption. Most of our puppies are from dogs that accidentally got bred, so most of the time we only know the breed of one parent. We do NOT buy animals from breeders. Please call for the most up-to-date information as to what we have available. Maybe your next best friend is here waiting for you!
Depending on age, all our pets are either spayed or neutered, or, if younger, provided a certificate to get it done when old enough. They are current with vaccinations. Canines are microchipped and felines FELV/FIV tested.
We are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and are funded solely on donations. We have been in business since 1953 and are one of the oldest shelters in Northern Illinois.
We accept pets from individuals who have to give them up. You must call to find out the procedure and to make an appointment to bring in the pet.
