Help Us, Help Them
H.E.L.P. is an all- volunteer based, not for profit organization in the Fox Valley area of Illinois.
H.E.L.P. is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, all volunteer rescue organization. We provide veterinary care, food, and shelter for stray and abandoned cats and dogs until they are adopted into loving homes. H.E.L.P. does not have a facility.
All of our dogs and cats are in foster homes which enable us to get to know an animal so we can better match the cat/dog with the right person or family.
Consider Adopting a Special Cat!
Thierry is a delightful tortie with “special needs”. Although she has a left rear leg that is weaker than the others, she will still jump up onto the back of a couch or chair for a nap during the day and evening; it may take a few tries! She is very friendly and enjoys laying on or next to her foster family members and especially likes it when her head and neck are scratched. Because of her rear leg weakness using the litter box can be a challenge at times, but with some small adaptations to the box she is successful. Thierry would love to be your companion. She currently lives and plays with a Maltese dog and 3 other cats and gets along great!
If you would like to meet Thierry, please fill out an adoption application. You can make a donation to continue caring for Thierry long term. We won't give up on finding her a furever home!
Volunteers are the key to our success!
The time and effort volunteers spend with the animals and at our events keep H.E.L.P. empowered to save the lives of homeless animals. By joining H.E.L.P.’s team of dedicated volunteers, you’ll build strong relationships with the community, animals and other like-minded volunteers.
The first step in becoming a H.E.L.P. volunteer is to complete a volunteer application. Whether caring for animals, managing adoption events, raising funds, marketing, or doing administrative work, volunteers are a very important part of H.E.L.P.
This is such a rewarding experience! We need foster homes for adult cats, adult dogs, kittens, and puppies.
H.E.L.P. provides veterinary care, food and supplies. You provide the TLC!
