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.
After continuous ear infections that were causing her discomfort, Gabby underwent surgery to have a polyp removed deep inside her ear. The growth was very large but the doctor was very happy with the results of the surgery. Gabby’s surgery was a delicate matter and required a specialist. We thought her comfort and quality of life was worth the cost. We are extremely grateful to her foster, Mary, for all the care and love she has provided through Gabby’s ordeal. We are raising money to assist with the cost of the surgery, by selling H.E.L.P. t-shirts through Facebook and H.E.L.P. Christmas ornaments. If you would like to help with Gabby's bills, please donate now. Your help allows us to help them. Thank you!
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!
