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 how you can be of assistance to those who are in need.

At Humane Haven Animal Shelter, we are committed to providing food, shelter and medical care to the homeless pets of our community until we are able to place them in loving homes. Our mission is not just during the holidays, but one that runs 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 support and care to these loving pets who need our assistance.

Today, as Thanksgiving approaches, I am writing to ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation to support the work of Humane Haven Animal Shelter. 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.

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?

Please note: there will be no adoptions (cat or dog) at PetSmart on Wednesday, November 26th, in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday. 

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2014 Howloween Hoopla event at Whalon Lakes. Our event volunteers thank you for your attendance and generosity and invite you to share in a quick photo gallery of our fun memories!

Meet Jewel!

Jewel is one of the many adoptable cats here at HHAS. She would like it very much if you would take the time to visit her page to look at her pictures, her video and learn about what would be her ideal Forever Home!

Meet Cutie!


 An Immense Thank You!

Thank you for the generous donations, the raffle participation and the time that you took out of your weekend schedule to participate in our event. We hope you had as much fun attending as we did putting on this event! Your time and charity helped immensely to care for our homeless cats and dogs.
