The Animal Welfare League was founded in 1935 to stop the suffering of animals that seemed common place in Chicagoland. Everyday the Animal Welfare League saves animals lives and works to improve the way they are treated and regarded by society. In the Chicagoland area, we help all animals through our adoption programs, our low cost clinic services, our local cruelty investigations and our public education programs. Locally we work to improve municipal, city and state laws and regulations regarding the treatment of animals. Animal Welfare League houses the largest number of adoptable animals from a non-profit organization in the entire mid-west. The Animal Welfare League is an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that receives no city, state or federal funding and relies on private donations to continue with its mission of helping all animals.
