As Will County’s original no-kill shelter, it has been serving the area for over 40 years with a single purpose, to provide a safe haven for homeless pets and help them find their forever homes.
Every day of the year, the organization cares for more than 40 homeless dogs and nearly 100 cats looking for their forever homes. It provides for their general health care, shelter and well-being through its network of volunteers and resources.
This private shelter is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit that receives no federal or local government dollars to run the facility and care for pets. The shelter relies on generous donations to make it all happen.
At the Will County Humane Society, homeless pets stay as long as they need in order to find forever homes. During their stay, the Humane Society handles their comprehensive care and medical needs.
All proceeds from the 2020 calendar produced by the Forest Preserve District of Will County will benefit the Will County Humane Society.
The Will County Humane Society is a no-kill shelter, which challenges the methods of traditional animal sheltering that for centuries has involved managing pet overpopulation by killing the surplus of homeless pets.
