Teamwork, communication and friendship are the three words that nearly every member of the Monday night 7 – 9pm kennel crew uses to describe their shift.

Laura Lithio is such a dedicated volunteer that even on her weekends off, she often comes to the shelter just to hang out with the house cats.

The staff of the West Suburban Humane Society don't have to go looking for animals to help. The animals find us: Dogs, cats, bunnies, even guinea pigs get left on our doorstep or walk through our doors every day.

A chance to cuddle with some lovey dogs is the main attraction for the volunteers on the Thursday 11-2 Kennel showing shift.

Want to have some fun with your dog this summer? Suburban K9 and West Suburban Humane Society will be offering a 6 week Beginner Obedience Class, a 6 week Beginner Agility Class and a 6 week Advanced Obedience class.
