COVID UPDATE: July 8
The Anti-Cruelty Society is gradually returning to normal operations to ensure the ongoing wellness of our team members, visitors, and animals.
- Masks are still required
- Social distancing and room capacity limits remain in place
All of our adoption sites are now open for drop-in adoptions. Room capacity limits are still in place at our River North and South Loop Everyday Adoption Center locations, so wait times may be significant. Learn more about the adoption process, available animals, as well as hours and locations.
Emergency Surrenders/Animal Intake
Appointments are preferred for animal surrenders by calling 312-644-8338. Intake hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Our Spay/Neuter Clinic remains closed to the public. We anticipate reopening for appointments in the next few months. There is not a waiting list. Please check back for updates.
We welcome donations of unopened pet food, treats, and supplies, as well as towels and small blankets. Please drop off donations at our 510 N. LaSalle entrance.
Your generosity is always appreciated. Donate here to help us continue to care for animals in need.
If you are looking to get involved with your family, or are looking for teen programs, learn more about in-person opportunities.
We are not currently hosting training for new adult volunteers for our on-site programs. Check back to our website this fall for the resumption of volunteer orientation and training.
If you have questions about the current status of our services and programs, please call 312-644-8338 or email our team.
The Anti-Cruelty Society's main adoption center and most services are located in the River North neighborhood in Chicago at the corner of LaSalle Street and Grand Avenue.
