Review for Animal Care League, Oak Park, IL, USA
I volunteered at the Animal Care League and found the staff and facility to be superb. The facility is clean and the animals are very well taken care of. The staff are very busy, but they are always willing to answer questions and help out customers. The staff are clear to stress that the Animal Care League is not a no kill shelter. Rather it is a limited intake shelter which means that they only take animals that they have space for and they never euthanize an animal to make space for another animal. They only euthanize animals that are sick beyond repair or dangerous to potential adopters. Many animal shelters get a bad reputation for not being a no kill shelter, but the Animal Care League does everything they can to rehabilitate or train their animals before euthanizing them. They take the decision very seriously and never euthanize animals out of convenience. Overall I have had an excellent experience volunteering at the Animal Care League and I know plenty of people with happy pets that they have adopted from the ACL.
