Surrendering Your Pet to Will County Humane Society
Founded with the No Kill mission at heart, we are committed to each and every pet in our care. And we are committed to our pets for their entire lives. If anything should happen where their adopters can no longer care for them, we ask that they are returned to us.
PLEASE NOTE: Owner surrenders are considered on a case-by-case basis. Intake availability varies based on space, vaccination/testing status and those currently waiting.
DROP OFF’S ARE NOT ACCEPTED!
