About


Our main objective is to provide immediate care to animals in need, and provide education and resources to those who find themselves in situations where their direct actions can benefit local wildlife. We are located in Northern Illinois, and while we are not always available for help hands-on, we try to be accessible via phone and email to provide direction if possible.

You can reach us by our contact information below, or visit Animal Help Now to find help in your area.

Please understand that we are volunteers and receive no compensation. While every effort is made to be available, there are times where an onsite visit is not possible. We appreciate your understanding.
