What We Aim To Solve

The Anti-Cruelty Society believes that companion animals provide people with joy, offers recognized health benefits and unconditional love and it is our goal to find a home for every adaptable companion animal in need. The Society offers a variety of programs and services to build a community of caring by helping pets and educating people including the following: Cat and dog adoptions, spay/neuter clinic, humane education, cruelty investigation and rescue, free behavior hotline, rehabilitation and treatment centers, pet loss group sessions, a foster program, pet first aid and CPR classes, and other pet-related workshops. Working together with other organizations and the public raises awareness about the needs of animals and how we can work together to promote responsible pet ownership and help prevent cruelty, abuse, and neglect. One of the key challenges facing our community is access to care in underserved areas and we are offering safety net services to meet these needs.

Why Should You Adopt

Puppy stolen from South Loop PetSmart

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you’ll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

Chicago Animal Shelters See Uptick In Pets In Need Of Care

Animal shelters across the city are seeing an increase this year in the number of pets coming through their doors after a relatively quiet 2020, during which few people gave up their pets, or surrendered them, to shelters.

Jennifer Schlueter of the city-run Chicago Animal Care and Control says people are citing these surrenders to disruptions like returning to work or moving. But the increase in animals puts a strain on the shelter, she said.
