I have had dogs mys entire life, all were large breeds except one small. I also provided dog care for those in temporary need of shelter and care. I believe a healthy diet and exercise is key for a happy dog. I have taken several dog training courses and know how to keep calm and show no fear around a dog who is barking or asserting dominance. I understand the different behaviors and traits in each breed and deal with each dog appropriately.

Dog Boarding in Chicago Heights

South Suburban Humane Society is dedicated to taking care of homeless and abandoned pets in the suburbs of Chicago, including Chicago Heights. They care for and shelter pets and animals who are in need of a home, investigate ways to prevent animal abuse in the community and educate the public about pet ownership duties and the responsibility of taking care of animals at home. 

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.
