I adopted a pet from this animal shelter a few years ago and have since gone back to visit dozens of times. This is one of the best shelters in the Chicagoland area. When you enter, you're recieved with a welcoming smile and a great chance to get to know some beautiful pets. The facility is clean and always attended to at all times. You're allowed to visit with however many animals you want and able to spend time with them in various locations around the facility. The staff is very knowledgeable and 'in the know' about their own animals. They are honest about the pet you're adopting and do everything in their power to make the adoption an easy process. A very family-oriented place to visit.
