Animal Care Report

Providing Hope

The Fox Valley Humane Association has been saving lives, easing suffering and providing hope and life saving services for pets and people for 124 years. We aren’t afraid to take on the tough challenges or do the hard work. Because of that we remain the only full service humane society in our community and surrounding areas. The FVHA remains focused on saving lives, providing the highest quality programs and services and offering life changing opportunities for pets and people.

Because of all these things we were able to SAVE THE LIVES OF 6887 ANIMALS IN 2017! 

Sadly not every animal can be saved and any decision to euthanize a pet for health reasons is done after carefully consulting with and at the direction of our veterinary team.  In addition, any euthanasia for behavioral reasons is determined by using nationally established protocols. We also have a seasoned trainer of 33 years and behaviorist on staff that oversees the many rehabilitation and training programs. 100% of our adoptable pets are placed into new homes because of our many cutting edge rehabilitation programs. Ultimately, we continue to support pet owners with end of life compassionate care for aging and ill pets.

The staff and volunteer force of the Fox Valley Humane Association is made up of hard working, dedicated and compassionate people who believe in doing the very best we can for every animal and owner that comes through our doors.
