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.”
Domestic Short Hair – Grey/White Tabby – 9 years old – Female 11 lbs
Sugar was relinquished to us and has been at Helping Paws since 1/17. Just like her name, she is the sweetest cat ever! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to give this Senior a wonderful home? She is eligible for our Senior to Senior program where we waive the adoption fee to any adopter 65 years of age or older! Not 65? That’s okay, it’s Adopt-A-Shelter Cat Month and we are reducing our fees on all cats (6 months or older) by $20.
