Fostering pets is a huge way to help save lives in our community. Give a temporary home to a pet in need and help them find their permanent family!
We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities, from dog walking and cat socialization to fundraising and outreach.
The South Suburban Humane Society is dedicated to promoting the well-being of pets and the people who love them in the Metro Chicago region. Through the care and sheltering of animals needing protection, providing pet care resources to our communities, promoting the human-pet bond through adoption services, and targeted, high-impact spay/neuter policies, the South Suburban Humane Society will make every effort towards ending pet homelessness, reducing pet overpopulation, and creating a better world for pets and their people.
