Helping Paws Animal Shelter’s mission is to provide shelter, food, medical care, and comfort to abandoned, neglected, and abused animals until they are placed into loving, responsible homes.
Second Chances Start Here!
Helping Paws is a no-kill animal shelter and private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Our small, committed staff of 11 employees and over 300 dedicated volunteers handle and care for more than 800 animals annually and serve more than 300,000 residents in McHenry County and surrounding communities.
Each animal that comes into our shelter is treated with respect, kindness and compassion. We believe that for each of our animals…”Second Chances Start Here.”
This boy is as sweet as his name, Reeces, and you will just love him to pieces! He was found with a group of cats in a barn, but he is definitely not an outdoor cat. He just loves being petted. This gorgeous Orange guy just wants some love and attention!
