Review for West Suburban Humane Society, Downers Grove, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

WSHS definitely deserves a 5 star rating (I’d give ‘em 10 stars if I could). Their main concern is the welfare of the animals, not only their health but also their happiness & quality of life. The staff & volunteers truly do care about all the animals & love them as their own. It is run by a small, friendly, compassionate staff of employees and many caring volunteers. They rely heavily on volunteers & private donations since they do not receive any government funding, but because of this they are not required and really do try to avoid, at all costs, putting any animals down that they take in. They have a very successful training program; for both dogs & owners. They also have a wonderful foster program. Vaccinations, microchip, spay/neuter & 30 days pet insurance are all included in the adoption fee. So stop in today! I highly recommend visiting the WSHS for your next addition to your family. I know I will definitely adopt my next pet from there.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Witnessing & preparing many happy adoptions.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the facility for more room, not only for more space to help save more animals but also for viewing & interacting.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
