Accessible Services for Pets & Their Humans in Chicago

The Anti-Cruelty Society is Chicago's premier animal welfare organization. Since 1899, our open door philosophy has welcomed all animals in need, whether they are cute or plain, young or old, square-jawed or bow-legged. We believe every animal deserves love, respect, and the chance to find a forever home. Through our comprehensive programs and services, we are building a community of caring by helping pets and educating people.

We are compassion in action for Chicago's pets.
