About


The 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. I am located in Northern Illinois, and while I am not always available for help hands-on, I try to be accessible via phone and email to provide direction if possible.

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

Please understand that I am a volunteer and receive no compensation. While every effort is made to be available, due to the massive amounts of calls received, there will be times when some calls will not be returned. I appreciate your understanding.
