For The Love Of Pets is dedicated to keeping the family pet with the family that loves them.


For The Love Of Pets is assisting 178 families in LaSalle/Livingston and parts of Will County with their pet food bank. We have helped to save 27 dogs and 13 cats that would have died because their owner's couldn't afford emergency veterinary care. We have helped place 23 dogs and 22 cats that have been victims of foreclosure and might be adding 3 more dogs to that list this week.

Target demographics:

Any families with pets who are unable to keep them due to job loss, illness or any other temporary financial emergency.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

2009 27 families with pet food bank, 12 dogs & 3 cats with emergency vet care.2010 64 with pet food bank, 13 dogs & 1 cat assisted with emergency vet care.2011 112 family assisted with our pet food bank, 3 cats & 4 dogs assisted with emergency vet care.

Geographic areas served:

Pet food bank is restricted to LaSalle/Livingston Counties in Illinois. (But I will try to help you find assistance in your location if you need it.) Emergency Veterinary is limited to the State of Illinois but will soon be Nationwide. Foreclosure assistance program will begin in Illinois then move to other States as I get volunteers, so please call and check for assistance.

A very much a legitimate organization. I am volunteered my time to transport animals and I love the people. Karen McCumsey has done an excellent job with this organization and I hope it will grow within the next coming year. Great job Karen!

I was honored to be invited to the Board right at the beginning. I have personally worked making deliveries, making food pick-ups from our suppliers, and transporting sick, injured, or abandoned animals to the veterinarians in our area that work with us for the care they need. It is a great feeling of accomplishment that I see the families that we have helped, to be be able to keep their furry kids with them or to help place an animal in it's new 'furever home'..

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
