Protect your pet. ShelterCare Pet Insurance Programs

Thanksgiving is a time of joyful celebration, yet also a time of reflection. As Thanksgiving approaches, it’s time to reflect with gratitude on the blessings and bounty that you have received. While making your holiday plans and reflecting on all you have to be thankful for, it's also a good time to think about those who are less fortunate, and consider whether you can be of assistance to those who are in need.

At Humane Haven Animal Shelter, we are committed to providing food and shelter to the homeless pets of our community until we are able to place them in loving homes, not just during the holidays, but throughout the year. We have more pets needing our help than ever before, but our resources are limited. We are dependent on the generosity of donors to continue to provide much needed support to these loving pets who need our assistance.

I am writing today to ask you to consider making a tax-deductible donation to support the work of Humane Haven Animal Shelter as Thanksgiving approaches. No donation is too small; any amount will be greatly appreciated. Donating is easy. You can contribute to Humane Haven by visiting our donation page on our website at or by sending a check or money order to HHAS, P.O. Box 1070, Bolingbrook, IL 60440.  Please also consider our 2015 Wish List and purchasing an item from the list as a donation to us; you can drop off that gift with our volunteers during our adoption hours on Sunday or Wednesday at the Bolingbrook PetSmar! You will be helping give a homeless dog or cat something to help with its care or play, and your gift is tax-deductible! 

All funds received go directly to support the Humane Haven homeless pets. What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than to make a conscious decision to help the homeless pets who are in need?

If you have lost your pet, please call your surrounding animal control facilities. Humane Haven Animal Shelter does not pick up stray animals off the streets. Please don't stop at calling only your town's animal control, your pet can travel far or be brought to a town other than your own. Call all surrounding animal control facilities and report your pet missing. Is your pet micro-chipped? Please call your veterinarian and make and appointment ASAP if not. Be responsible and safe, your pets are depending on you.
