In Chicago, we love animals. The city’s local shelters strive to provide a haven for companion animals until they find forever homes. All pets receive healthy meals and quality medical care. If you’d like to help, these three suburban Chicago animal shelters near our apartments in Woodridge would appreciate your support.
West Suburban Humane Society
A volunteer-based organization, the West Suburban Humane Society premiered in 1972 as a lost-and-found referral service. Over the next 10 years, it began sheltering homeless animals. Today, it saves 600 pets every year.
The Society continues its mission to reunite lost animals with their families by maintaining a database and providing pet identification tags at no cost. To help the West Suburban Humane Society, consider making a purchase from its Amazon Wish List. Requested items include cat food, pet toys, and dog agility training tunnels.
Chicagoland Animal Rescue
The Chicagoland Animal Rescue works to save abandoned and unwanted cats through animal shelters, veterinarians, and animal control facilities. It provides a haven until the animals find loving homes. The dedicated volunteers follow up with every adoption to ensure its success. The rescue also promotes spaying/neutering, humane treatment, and basic cat care. To help, the Chicagoland Animal Rescue accepts online donations, which pay for food, medical care, and other necessities.
Also focusing on cats, Humane Haven was established by two animal lovers in 1999. Their dream was to provide a sanctuary for the animals until they found forever families. The volunteers serve as a voice for their feline friends, and also provide the community with pet care awareness and education. The entirety of your donation will help pay for bedding, toys, veterinary supplies, and other pet care needs.
All in all, these suburban Chicago animal shelters provide quality care for lost creatures big and small. For other ways to support local businesses from home, visit our blog.
