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.

While the immediate care of local wildlife is our number one concern, we understand that volunteers and charitable organizations are the true heroes when it comes to making a difference. Our goal is to offer consultation to make sure that organizations planning on improving life can become a reality, because none of us can do this alone. Whether you need quality safety training, are starting a 501c3, or need assistance with creating a web presence for one that already exists, we may be able to help.

Current services provided:

- Wildlife Rehabilitation
- Wildlife phone consultation
- First Aid training
- Bloodborne Pathogen training
- 501c3 start up assistance
- Website and hosting assistance
