We want to thank all of our supporters for once again voting Helping Paws Animal Shelter the BEST  animal shelter/rescue for the seventh year in a row! We are very humbled by receiving this honor again.

This year marks 48 years of servicing McHenry County.  Little did we know back in 1969 when a small group of people got together to start a foster based program to rescue and rehome cats that we would now have a 10,000 square foot shelter and we are able to help 600 plus animals a year find their forever homes.  As the oldest no-kill animal rescue organization in McHenry County we believe in giving every animal a second chance at a happy and healthy life.

Again, thank you for this wonderful recognition and for helping our shelter continue its mission of being the Best Animal Shelter in McHenry County!
