Our Mission


All adoption fees are considered donations to the shelter and are non-refundable. Your generous donation to the South Suburban Humane Society allows us to carry out our mission of helping animals who need us most. For a complete step-by-step outline of the adoption procedure please click here:

Adoption donations include first shots, first worming, microchip, spay or neuter, tag and most importantly a wonderful new companion. There is an additional fee of $15 for a Rabies vaccination.

To expedite the adoption process you may print your application and bring the completed form with you when you visit. SSHS Adoption Application
