Meet Jack! Jack is a 6 year old Labrador Retriever who came to us in search of a new family. When he arrived, we discovered he had tears in the ACLs of both legs, hookworm, lungworm, a mast cell tumor, and a broken canine tooth with pulp exposure. Thankfully Jack has received most surgeries and has recovered nicely.

We were able to afford Jack's expensive surgeries, totaling over $10,000, thanks to donors like you. Unfortunately, Jack still needs more treatments, as do hundreds of animals in Chicagoland. Our mission here at West Suburban is to help animals other organizations won’t, giving cats and dogs like Jack hope for a healthy life and a chance to find a forever home. Each one of these animals is special, and each deserves our help. Without continued funding, we won’t be able to fulfill our mission, and animals like Jack will not get the treatments they desperately need.

Please consider giving a gift today, and help us to continue our important work - rescuing and rehabilitating Chicagoland’s most needy animals!

Teamwork, communication and friendship are the three words that nearly every member of the Monday night 7 – 9pm kennel crew uses to describe their shift.

Laura Lithio is such a dedicated volunteer that even on her weekends off, she often comes to the shelter just to hang out with the house cats.

The staff of the West Suburban Humane Society don't have to go looking for animals to help. The animals find us: Dogs, cats, bunnies, even guinea pigs get left on our doorstep or walk through our doors every day.

A chance to cuddle with some lovey dogs is the main attraction for the volunteers on the Thursday 11-2 Kennel showing shift.
