WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT
A Caring Place Humane Society is an all volunteer, non-facility, no-kill animal rescue organization operating in the greater Chicagoland area offering adoption opportunities for cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies.
The compassion and love of animals, plus our belief in the positive effects of animal companionship, compelled us to create a humane organization that focuses on saving animals by working diligently with people. We do not set time limits on our animals to make room for another, nor do we euthanize due to old age or costly health care.
Where Do All the Animals Come From?
A Caring Place Humane Society takes in animals from different sources including those relinquished by owners/guardians and good samaritans. However, our primary source for animals are those at highest risk of being killed in animal control agencies, shelters both local and from other states, and veterinary offices. We especially work with the Illinois Animal Rescue Coalition supporting the rescue of dogs and cats from rural shelters in the state of Illinois.
Once rescued from a pound or facility, we provide each animal entering our adoption program a full veterinary exam, inoculations, neutering, testing for disease and parasites, microchipping, and occasionally dentals. In many cases, more intenstive health care is provided based on the animalsí individual needs, circumstances, or illnesses. We provide this quality of care because many of the animals we take in have either never had veterinary care or come to us in poor condition. Our modest adoption fees cover only a portion of our veterinary bills so we are always in serious need of donations from the public, our adopters, and volunteers. Without these donations, and constant fund raising efforts, we do not have a way to recover veterinary costs since we are not county, state, or federally supported.
The animals in our adoption system can be viewed via the internet at at least 17 websites including www.acaringplace.petfinder.com If you would like more information on any of our animals, please contact us by calling 630-375-7976 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
