H.E.L.P. is a volunteer based, not for profit organization in the Fox Valley area of Illinois, 40 miles west of Chicago.

H.E.L.P. is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, 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 Gus Gus, a Very Special Kitty!

Gus Gus was taken in by HELP in 2006 as a bottle-fed baby. When he was adopted, he was an only pet. Over the last 11 years there were dogs and four young children added to the family. It was too much for the family, so they left Gus Gus at Animal Control. HELP found out and welcomed him back into the HELP family.

 Blood-work and UTI test proves he is in great health. He has such a gentle disposition, and would really just like someone to lounge with. He likes to lay in your arm-pit, scoot as close as he can to you, put his front leg around your neck, and then he touches your face with the soft pads of his de-clawed paw. (He is front de-clawed). Because of the trauma & chaos at his past home, he'd rather hang out with an adult human in a very quiet home, rather than with other cats, dogs or children. Gus is not that interested in toys. He is in a temporary foster home right now, and he is waiting to live out the rest of his years being spoiled rotten in a forever home with you!

Warning! Keep a Kleenex handy. When Gus is very happy, he purrs extremely hard, so hard that he drips from both sides of his mouth. When he calms down, the dripping stops. You can't get mad a cat for just being so darn happy to see you, can you?

If you have it in your heart and have the time and energy to give a forever home to very sweet and cuddly boy, please fill out the application on line or contact us at 877-364-2286.

If you would like to donate to help care for Gus Gus until he finds his forever home, please donate using the below button.  Gus Gus will always be safe in H.E.L.P.'s care, but we need your help to provide for him.  Thank you for supporting H.E.L.P..
