Animals Are Not Disposable - Please Love Them For Their Whole Life

Today I would like to introduce you to one of our favorite local animal shelters, The Will County Humane Society.

They are the first no kill animal shelter in Will County near our home in Naperville Illinois. They are a privately owned, 501-C3 charitable organization and receive no assistance from local or state government.

We love all the things they do to help find new homes for pets that have been dropped off, abandoned or left behind and they have a great website showing a Pet Of The Week page showing pictures and descriptions of rescued pets that are just waiting for a new family.

They provide shots and medical treatment for all the animals in their care to make sure that you only get a healthy new friend if you are looking for a pet to adopt into your home.

For example all of their puppies and kittens have had their first shots and all adult dogs have been spayed or neutered and have received Rabies, Distemper, Parvo, Corona, Leptospirosis Nepatitis and Kennel Cough Vaccines.

All adult cats have been spayed or neutered and have received Rabies, Feline Leukemia, Feline Distemper, Chlamydia, and Feline Rhino Vaccines.

The animals in their care need special attention over the winter months – their bills for heating, caring for the increasing number of abandoned pets and the overall increased needs of vet bills make this a very difficult time for them.
They have T-shirts on sale to celebrate the 40th year anniversary of the shelter. Coffee mugs, travel mugs, canvas bags, note pads and clips all with the Will County Humane Society Logo are also available. Sales from all of these items always contribute to the upkeep of the shelter.
If you would like to donate your time as a volunteer to this humane society or wish to donate something else to help the rescue animals instead they have a Pet Shelter Wish List that can give you donation ideas.

I would appreciate it if you can do anything to help this great animal shelter, the pets they have in their care or the thoughts behind their motto;

“Pets Are Not Disposable Please Love Us For Our Whole Life”

Happy Tails To You
