About Just Animals Shelter

Just Animals Shelter is a non-profit,501(c)3 organization, no-kill animal shelter. We receive no tax-payer dollars or government funding. All funding has been donated by caring community members or raised ourselves. All donations to Just Animals Shelter are tax-deductible.

We started in 1997 and have since saved thousands of animals. In 2015 alone, Just Animals rescued and found homes for 424 cats and 83 dogs. In 2009, the shelter started its Pet Wellness Clinic program, further benefiting members of the community and their furry friends. Just Animals will only keep growing and improving with the loving support of community members like you!

Monthly visits are at the following locations:

We are at the Oswego & Yorkville Petsmarts throughout the year on the weekends, (come say hi to Cheri!) and we are always part of the National Adoption Events. PetSmart is amazing at sponsoring us as our cats are there all the time. Come visit us at the National Adoption Events too. Be sure to support PetSmart when you shop as they support us with so much.

They are so sweet and caring. They take the time needed for each animal and I would totally recommend them. I appreciate their time and their patience.
