Help Us, Help Them

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.
