I am an Animal Control warden in Dixon, Il and personally know that this wonderful group has assisted numerous families with food, vet assistance and keeping their pets safe either with the families or with families willing to care for their Pets. They are consistantly working on helping families and pets and have assisted me with relocating pets from where I work(90 milesfrom Streator) that fell on hard times and were unable to keep or care for their Pets. Keep up the Wonderful work Karen!!! Barry DeBoor LCAC Warden, Dixon, Il.
Karen is a wonderful and compassionate person. Her light shines way beyond expectations. I rescued a black lab that wondered into my yard. Apparently she was dumped . Being a senior, she was starting to show signs of aging. I lost my job when the company I worked for closed down. When she needed a vet visit for horrible ear infections. Karen graciously came to my rescue and helped cover the vetting she needed. She also helps a friend of mine with the need of pet food. Cant say enough good about her and the organization "For The Love Of Pets." Thank you for being there.
Very awesome for the love of pets they make sure to get other animals their forever home they rescue animals and always help in every way they can rather it’s them help pay vet bills or give food to ppl that need it for their animals this lady is great keep up the great work you ROCK!!!
For the Love of Pets gave me my Moe ..or Moses ..He was a rescue, but he rescued me.... This non-profit has been there for me for over 7 years now ..I don't know how I could have kept my other pets when my husband passed if it were not for ..FOR the LOVE of PETS..tnx Karen M.!
I 1st fostered, then Adopted Moses..he right away became a service dog for my Husband who had seizures ...Moe grew too old though so we adopted Spirit a huge King Shepherd to be trained... ( he never got the gist of R's seizures, but he was large enough to pull Richard back up to a standing position when he fell) Moses passed away just 10 days prior to my hubbies passing, so Spirit became MY service dog for PTSD....
I am a client served and volunteer and champion of animal rights.....
This organization has helped several members of my family, my community, and even myself. They are a beacon of hope in this area and many families would be torn apart without them.
For The Love Of Pets is a wonderful organization!! The great things they do for the animals I can't say it enough how grateful I am for them!! Thank you For The Love of Pets
I am so impressed by all the efforts of this charity. From helping with food, injuries/illness and reuniting lost pets. Good job !!!!
For the Love of Pets, founded by the amazing animal activist, Karen McCumsey, is not only responsible for helping my family, but has saved countless lives, animal and human. Karen and her family work tirelessly at all hours of the day and night, to provide for families with pets that are in crisis, or just need a little help. Thru this unique nonprofit, hundreds of pets are able to stay with the families who love them. Without their help, many animals would have been put to death, for the simple fact that their owners are having a rough time and cannot feed them. Even worse, many elderly pet owners would go without eating, just to feed the companions they love. Thank you, Karen, and all of you who give your time and energy to For the Love of Pets, for saving keeping our pets where they belong, with those who love them! ~Marie~
For the love of pets is a great organization! I had found a young dog running the streets and found Karen through mutual friends. Even though she was out of town, she was still able to arrange help for this dog at night! I was so impressed and grateful for the help!
Karen McCumsey - For the Love of Pets is one of my Facebook friends. Back in the beginning of this year I decided to look for a pet. I noticed one of Karen's posting caught my eye. I called Karen and discussed what she knew about this dog. I trusted Karen's judgement and said I WANT HIM!! Karen made arrangements so that I could get him. Keep in mind, Karen is in Streator, IL and I am in Oak Lawn, IL. Almost 2 hours away. But She mad it Happen!!. We are so happy with our new dog!! His name is Jetson! Jetson if spoiled rotten, has his spot on the couch and at the end of the bed. He is now part of the family, like he has been here forever! Not sure what breed he is, but we do know he is now the best breed - "Rescued" . I would highly recommend Karen McCumsy - For the Love of Pets!!
When the recession hit our home became the zoo people dumped cats and dogs in the corn field next to our home. We found homes for some but went from 2 cats and a dog to at one point 2 dogs and 12 cats.Then my husband was laid off then my older kids finally myself. I was at a loss what to do for all the animals.Then I found the Love of Pets we would not be able to care for all the animals we have without them.I can't stop people from dumping there pets but wish they would try to find them homes .I have as of today 8 cats and 1 dog and have worked hard to adopt out the pets we rescue.God bless the Love of Pets hope they get the recognition and support they deserve.

For The Love Of Pets has helped me for over a year by giving me food and treats for my Dog and Cat if they had not cared so much I would have had to get rid of them and as I am handicapped they bring me much love and compainship as a pet can bring. FTLOP has never turned away someone needing help they have even gone as far as using there personal money to buy food and things people needed for there pets. They never turn away a stray pet or a pet that noone can care for anymore. Many pets would have died if it were not for the kindness of this organization I beleive they care more the our own government cares.
