Monthly giving will help us save lives. Without your support we can not continue our work of saving these animals that would not make it out of the shelter.

There are over 17,000 animals killed in Chicago not including the thousands of animals left at no kill shelters abandoned and left behind.


Your donations help these animals live and be able to get onto their forever homes. With your support these dogs and cats would be another sad statistic.

We rely on donations so we can provide the help these animals need.

When we know we can rely on monthly support we can save more lives and help rehome more dogs and cats - so they never enter a shelter. Your donations help us provide medical care , food and shelter so they can get the life they deserve.
