Giving Tuesday

Everyone deserves a place to call home, a “soft place to land”, a place that’s warm and safe. Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Whether it’s extending a helping hand to pet owners in need or providing a temporary safe haven for lost or homeless pets, the Fox Valley Humane Association is committed to saving lives and ensuring all roads lead to home. We believe no animal need should go unmet. You can help us save a lives and be that temporary “soft to place to land.

After the hustle and bustle of the holiday, Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, join us for “Giving Tuesday”. Here are just a few ways you can help the Fox Valley Humane Association:

Adopt a Pet

Adopting an animal is an important decision that will affect the rest of your life. Choosing to adopt is choosing to save a life, help reduce pet overpopulation and most of all bring happiness to your family and your new pet! When you come to the Fox Valley Humane Association to look for a pet, we will provide you with all of the information that we know about each animal. Please plan on spending enough time with the animal to be sure that you are making the right selection.

If you do not find the right one on your first visit to our shelter, don’t worry! Please return on another day when many new animals will be available for adoption. Our staff and volunteers are here to help you add a wonderful new member to your family.

Become a Foster Parent

Do you want to help volunteer,  but feel that you don’t have time to volunteer at the shelter? Fostering may be the right thing for you! At the Fox Valley Humane Association fosters provide lifesaving services for dogs and cars. Fosters open their hearts and home to care for animals that may be sick injured, having trouble adjusting to shelter life or some pets that may just need to work on manners and socialization.

When you foster, you open up space at the FVHA, allowing us to rescue more animals. Basic supplies you will need to care for foster animals (food, medications, kennels, etc.) are provided.

Become a Volunteer

Volunteers are the heart of the Fox Valley Humane Association. They touch every aspect of our operations and provide the highest-quality care for all of our pets.

By joining the Fox Valley Humane Association’s team of dedicated volunteers,  you’ll build strong relationships with other like-minded volunteers, the animal-loving community, and of course, the animals themselves. Working together, we will help every animal find their forever home.
