The Naperville Area Humane Society (NAHS) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit limited admission animal shelter for dog and cat adoption, foster care, and owner surrenders serving the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois.
In 1979, a group of caring citizens dedicated themselves to helping homeless companion animals in their community and created the Naperville Humane Society by fostering animals in their homes until permanent homes could be found. Wishing to serve more people and animals, this group solicited the financial support of the community and built a 3,550 square foot shelter in 1988. After 43 years and more than 20,000 animals served, the Board of Directors changed the name of the organization to more accurately reflect the population we serve. In January of 2005 the name was officially changed to Naperville Area Humane Society.
They provide services to over 700 hundred animals each year, which they are only able to do with the incredible help of volunteers and supporters. There are numerous ways to get involved ranging from becoming a foster family to volunteering at the shelter. Visit NAHS for more information on how you can help further their mission and to help give every animal “a better home, a better life, a better future.”
