Shelter Spotlight – The Anti-Cruelty Society

January 23, 2013  

The Anti-Cruelty Society / Chicago, IL

Mission statement: Building a community of caring by helping pets and educating people.

About the organization: In 1899, a small group of dedicated volunteers formed The Anti-Cruelty Society, with the goal of suppressing cruelty to animals, educating the public on humane treatment, and creating a refuge for strays. The vision of those first volunteers lives on, as the Society continues to provide compassionate care for any animal in need, attempts to find a home for every healthy or rehabilitatable dog and cat that comes through the doors, intervenes to prevent cruelty to animals, provides low- or no-cost spaying and neutering, and partners with the community to educate on animal issues and inspire compassion and respect.

Admission policy: Open door – no animal in need is turned away, nor are there any time limits placed on any healthy or rehabilitatable animal in its care. The Anti-Cruelty Society also cooperates with other rescues and transports to help find homes for adoptable animals.
