Change a Life - Save a Pet
The Kankakee County Humane Foundation (KCHF) is a 501(c) (3) non- profit organization that is a no-kill animal shelter. Since 1963 the Foundation has rescued unwanted, neglected and abandoned dogs and cats in the Kankakee County area.
You Can Donate to Help
We operate as a non-profit, no kill shelter, foster, and adoption agency for dogs and cats. The Foundation is entirely dependent on memberships and private donations and does not receive any tax revenue or public funds. Your kind and generous gift can help us continue our important work.
Every Pet Needs a Home - Adopt or Foster
There isn't any way we can shelter all of the pets in our area who need help. Please consider offering your home to adopt or foster a cat or dog. The Foundation home fosters our puppies, kittens, some dogs and cats exposing them to in-home living, manners and socialization. Of course the goal for every pet we serve is to help them find their FURever home! Please - join us!
You Can Help - Volunteer
The life blood of any non-profit is its volunteers. The gift of your time can be a high or as flexible as you would like, and we have all kinds of positions available. We would love to have to have you join us!
Hey there, its me, Boone! Im a 1 year old boxer/Pittie mix. I was temporarily staying at Joliet Animal Control, and my friends there were great, but they couldn't figure out why I was with them for 4 whole months! KCHF was in to pull some other dogs, and snagged me too! I'm really excited to be here, and I think they will find me a home super fast! I am a very sweet young man, and I just LOVE other dogs! I love attention from all ages of people, and haven't met any dogs I don't like. I would be the perfect addition to ANY family, because what's not to love about a gentle giant like me?!
