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!

Our Animal Angels

divider-01-free-img

Thank you for your donations and friendship. We couldn't have saved so many without you! In the rescue world, we are constantly hearing the phrase "I hate people." We would like to concentrate on the positive side and share with you some of the very special people we have encountered and the differences they have made. They are truly the angels among us.

Individuals

Mr. and Mrs. Fred (Pam) Henschel

This great duo saw our need for a van and generously chose to donate one that they no longer needed. Our old van was full of holes and the door was held on with dog leads, so this was so important for us! Now we have a large van we can use to haul supplies and animals in again.-----Thank you, Fred and Pam, for providing something that we needed so much.

Ms. Karen Romano

This wonderful lady made an incredibly generous donation. She has been very supportive of our cause. Without people like her, we would not be able to do what we do in the rescue world.-----Thank you, Karen, for all your caring support.

Mr. Michael Blecher

Michael is an outstanding young man who chose to earn his Eagle Scout Badge by constructing and installing our beautiful new dog kennels, summer of '09. The old kennels were removed and the new ones installed all in one day. It was a fun day for all. Michael saved us $2000 by doing this for us and we were able to apply the money saved to our vet bill and help even more animals. Thank you so much, Michael, work crew, and families, for doing this for us. You were a great group of people who will make a difference in this world of ours. I think everyone should be a Boy Scout or Girl Scout after meeting your group.-----Thank you, Michael, for making a difference.

Mr. and Mrs. Neal (Barb) Siegal

This caring couple was getting married and didn't really need the traditional wedding gifts, so they chose to help us instead! Their guests made donations to their choice of a few charities, and we were one of them. They raised over $900 for us, which will help us help so many lives.-----Thank you, Neal and Barb, for thinking of us and your unique idea.

Mr. Greg Lentini

This man is amazing, he has voluntarily transported several hundred cats from LaSalle County and the surrounding counties for spay/neuter for people who could otherwise have never afforded to have it done. His dedication has literally prevented thousands of unwanted kittens from being born. He is always ready to help us with anything we need, whether it be repairing something that's broken or playing Santa Claus for pictures with pets.-----Thank you, Greg, for all you do.
