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.”

Hope is a super girl. She was seized by the county in her home state of Kentucky. The people that owned her were terrible to her. She has BB’s embedded in her skin and shows signs of being beaten. In spite of all of this, she is a wonderful dog who just wants to be loved. Please come in and meet her soon and see if she’s the one you’ve been looking for!
