Even an hour a week can make a lot of difference in a dog’s or cat’s life. They thrive on and live for human attention. Please, if you can donate any time at all, call Judy at 815-288-7387 or email and see what you can do to make a difference in a homeless pet’s life! The look in their eyes or lick of your face will keep you coming back!

Help on Committees

There are many projects that we organize on a yearly basis: raffles, Steps for Strays, BBQ Cook Outs, Fur Ball, and more. We need your help and creative ideas to make our events successful and especially to raise funds for our animals. One person can make a difference! Leave your name and number with the shelter.

Home Care

There are more homeless cats and dogs than what we have room for. If you find a stray or abandoned animal, please place it on our waiting list and continue to care for it until we have room. Do the right thing, don’t neglect or ignore when you can help!
