Helping Paws is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization, founded in 1971. We're a no-kill animal shelter for stray and abandoned dogs and cats in McHenry County and surrounding areas. The animals are provided a shelter where they receive medical care, spaying or neutering, daily care and love, and the opportunity to be adopted by a responsible owner.
Helping Paws is open 7 days a week for your convenience. We are open daily from noon until 4:00. We are open until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
