Shindig at the Shelter

Join us for our Shindig at the Shelter Crafters, Vendors, Open House & More

Everyday the Animal Welfare League saves animals lives and works to improve the way they are treated and regarded by society. In the Chicagoland area, we help all animals through our adoption programs, our low cost clinic services, our local cruelty investigations, and our public education programs. Locally we work to improve municipal, city and state laws and regulations regarding the treatment of animals and operate the states largest non-profit animal shelter program. We have made progress since our beginning in 1935, but much more work needs to be done. click here to watch our video
