Our Mission

Special Thanks

Celebrate a special occasion (birthday/anniversary/adoption of a new pet!); recognize a friend’s achievement (promotion/job change/personal goals reached); honor military service; or memorialize a loved one, two- or four-legged, with a tribute donation to South Suburban Humane Society.  Notification of your thoughtful gift will be sent to the honoree or memorial family; and your kindness will help comfort a temporarily homeless animal, while waiting for his or her forever home.
 
Please note memorial/tribute gifts of $25 or more are acknowledged below:
