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 Tui's story below.

Tui is a beautiful tiger with green eyes and about 7 years old. She loves attention and will give you a head bump to let you know she wants to be petted. She is very playful and loves to chase her toys that are attached to a wand. She would love to be the only kitty in the house – she wants all the attention to herself. She is up to date on all of her shots and completely litter boxed trained. . Do you have the heart to give her a forever home?

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.
