They opened their doors in 1970, and ever since, they have been operating a 10,000 square foot shelter facility and opens their door to all animals that come to them. They help an average of around 6,000 animals per year! They have a combination of paid employees and volunteers that help run this massive rescue shelter.
They encourage residents of the community to donate if possible, and better yet, become a foster parent to the shelter or volunteer at their shelter facility. They are committed to helping teach and educate the community about proper animal treatment, how to take care of a dog, and the importance of keeping Chicago Heights and the surrounding community of pets safe, happy, and supported.
Furthermore, they host a heap of dog-friendly events throughout the year and hold numerous fundraisers to help raise money for the animals in their shelter. They also provide low-cost animal services, like spaying and neutering, so help keep overpopulations of dogs and cats under control.
