About The Anti-Cruelty Society

The Anti-Cruelty Society has been helping animals in need since 1899 and will assist Pets for Patriots members in finding their new pet friend. Their mission is building a community of caring by helping pets and educating people, which they accomplish through comprehensive programs and services, including adoptions, a low/no cost spay/neuter clinic (open to the public), a charity veterinary clinic and cruelty investigations and rescue.

As part of its commitment to responsible pet ownership and humane education, The Society’s programs include an anti-violence after school program and veterinary mentoring program, dog training classes, free behavior hotline, and temporary housing for pets whose owners are involved in crisis situations, such as domestic violence, medical emergencies, fires, floods, foreclosure, etc. In addition, the organization operates three rehabilitation and treatment centers that enable them to save more animals. The Society is available to receive animals 365 days a year from 9am-7pm.

As a founding member of the Chicago Animal Shelter Alliance, The Anti-Cruelty Society works with area animal welfare organizations to find a home for every adoptable and treatable animal. Their doors are open 365 days a year from 9am to 7pm for any animal in need. The Anti-Cruelty Society welcomes monetary donations, as well as pet toys, premium food, grooming supplies and various office supplies; see their complete wish list for details. For a more hands-on experience, become one of their valued volunteers.
