Works to end factory farming and rescue animals from cruelty.
Felines & Canines
Up until January 2012, Felines Inc. has operated as a cat-only shelter caring for approximately 130 cats and kittens in our two-story house. After extensive thought, soul-searching and preparation, we made the decision to renovate and expand our facility in order to care for up to 200 cats/kittens and add a wing to house approximately 20 dogs/puppies – officially becoming Felines & Canines! Our mission always has been, and will continue to be: providing a safe and loving shelter to abandoned, injured, abused and neglected animals until their permanent adoptive home is found. We strengthen the human/animal relationship through counseling, education, and compassion.
American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
The ASPCA was the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. Our mission, as stated by our founder, Henry Bergh, in 1866, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.”
The Humane Society of the United States

Chicago's Largest Humane Society
The Animal Welfare League is committed to helping every pet find a good home. Our motto is "recovery is the answer, not euthanasia" for animals that come to us injured, neglected, or abused.
Animal House Shelter
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.
The best possible veterinary care is always given to those at Animal House Shelter. We never decline treatment, whatever it may entail, if it means that the animal has a chance at a new and healthy life.
We strive to go above and beyond when caring for and socializing our animals. We understand the importance of getting to know each and every animal available for adoption in an effort to place them in the most perfect home possible. All dogs are walked 4-5 times a day and socialized with each other and volunteers. The cats are housed in a large ‘free roam’ cat room so they can socialize all day with each other, staff, volunteers and potential adopters.
