Animal House Shelter, Inc rescues abused and neglected dogs and cats and rehabilitates them mentally & physically in order to place them with the best new family. We rescue 98% of our dogs from high ‘kill’ shelters, pounds and various animal control facilities in which they are usually listed as strays, and almost always scheduled to be euthanized.
We have been open since June 2002 and have rescued, rehabilitated and placed over 10,000 dogs and cats, to date, into their loving forever homes!
“We can’t see going out and purchasing a dog when so many dogs are being turned away by people who can’t take care of them,” says one man recently taking home a new best friend.
When thinking of a typical ‘shelter dog,’ one might imagine an untamed mutt who needs plenty of rehabilitation before it can be adopted out.
While dogs of all breeds and backgrounds find their way into the shelter system, a majority of animals as recently as 2008 were forced to the streets when a flood took over parts of Chicago.
The animal shelter took in dozens of perfect pets left homeless from these floods. These animals are all otherwise ready to be given another roof they can relax and play under.
As noted in the video below, if you can’t make the commitment to adopt a dog, please consider fostering one.
For the biggest impact possible, adopt or donate to any of the pets in need on the Extra Special Pets page. You’ll quickly see how shelters across the land rescue, save and love the cats and dogs that need it most.
