Change a Life - Save a Pet
The Kankakee County Humane Foundation (KCHF) is a 501(c) (3) non- profit organization that is a no-kill animal shelter. Since 1963 the Foundation has rescued unwanted, neglected and abandoned dogs and cats in the Kankakee County area.
You Can Donate to Help
We operate as a non-profit, no kill shelter, foster, and adoption agency for dogs and cats. The Foundation is entirely dependent on memberships and private donations and does not receive any tax revenue or public funds. Your kind and generous gift can help us continue our important work.
Every Pet Needs a Home - Adopt or Foster
There isn't any way we can shelter all of the pets in our area who need help. Please consider offering your home to adopt or foster a cat or dog. The Foundation home fosters our puppies, kittens, some dogs and cats exposing them to in-home living, manners and socialization. Of course the goal for every pet we serve is to help them find their FURever home! Please - join us!
You Can Help - Volunteer
The life blood of any non-profit is its volunteers. The gift of your time can be a high or as flexible as you would like, and we have all kinds of positions available. We would love to have to have you join us!

Come join us on October 1, 2017, from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Governor Small Park in Kankakee for a great time with loads of vendors, activities for families and dogs, as well a pet costume contest and more! Click on the Learn More button to get the latest information from our Facebook page!

Fall Fest 2017

/Furry Fall Family Fest
I'm a 2 year lab mix. I'm a fun loving lady and I'm ready for a home all of my own! I just love other dogs, and would be happiest with dog and kid siblings to keep up with me! My adoption fee was paid for when a family adopted one of my friends a few weeks ago, so I'm more than ready to go home with you!
