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.

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

Sasha is a female gray tiger with white. She is very curious and is the first to explore new places. Her newest interest is the bathroom sink. She will perch on the end and meow until I turn on the water for her to get a drink. Sasha can be very timid of new people. She will lay on my computer desk to keep me company, but she does not like to be picked up and held. Since she has been in my home all of her life, you should expect her to take several weeks for her to be comfortable in her new home. Patience is the key. She has been introduced to our dog, but she basically ignores him. She has been spayed, micro-chipped and is up to date on all of her vaccines. She is completely litter boxed trained.

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 Sasha until she finds her forever home, please donate using the below button.  Sasha 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..
