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.

Please consider adopting a very special kitty that H.E.L.P. is caring for.   Read Munchkin's story below.

This little short-legged cat showed up about 3 1/2 years ago, to eat at a food station for local feral cats. In the winter of 2020 she came, and stayed, living under a porch in a straw house. When it was -20 in February 2021 her legs were shaking and she couldn’t walk. She was captured and brought inside. It was obvious that her vision was bad. The vet discovered that she has very limited vision, and can only see light and shadows. It’s believed she was spayed, ear-tipped, and released outside, because someone thought she was feral. In fact, she’s not feral at all … she just can’t see. She loves her head and neck scratched while purring & head-butting. So sweet. She likes to put her mouth on your hand, and paw at you, meaning she wants more petting, and doesn’t want you to leave. She is considered Special Needs, and will need a special person to adopt her. She is afraid of other cats until she gets to know them.

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

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