Creating and supporting mutually beneficial connections between people and animals through programs that raise awareness and inspire kindness and respect throughout our community.
In March of 2020, Anderson merged with Fox Valley Wildlife Center, introducing the care of injured and orphaned wild animals into our programming.
Bringing people and animals together, for good.
How we save animals and help people
Each year, Anderson connects 4,000 homeless pets with their forever families, saving the lives of animals and improving the lives of people throughout our community.
Outreach & Awareness
Through a variety of program formats, Anderson's Outreach Team provides opportunities for people of all ages to learn about and experience positive interactions with animals.
Military Veterans' Program
Our MVP Program offers opportunities for veterans to connect with animals through adoption, fostering, volunteering and pet therapy programs.
Healing Paws Pet Therapy Program
Healing Paws volunteers and their certified therapy pets improve the lives of people through the healing power of pets.
Behavior & Training
We have training classes available, and can offer behavioral advice to help with common (and not so common) behavior issues.
Low-Cost Vet Care
Anderson offers a variety of low-cost veterinary services including vaccinations, spay/neuter surgeries and more. Thanks to funding from the Millstein Veterinary Fund, we can now offer deeply discounted pricing for low-income pet owners.
Crisis Care Pet Boarding
We provide free boarding to the pets of domestic violence victims allowing them to leave their abuser without fearing for the safety of their pet.

We're lucky. Our community does not have a pet overpopulation problem. Sadly, many shelters in southern states still grapple with overwhelming numbers of animals and not enough homes. We partner with these shelters, transporting adoptable dogs, cats, puppies and kittens to Anderson, and their only hope of adoption.
Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation
In 2020, Anderson merged with Fox Valley Wildlife Center. We now care for more than 3,000 injured and orphaned wild animals each year.
In 2021, we launched Animal Allies Wildlife Exclusion Program, designed to provide humane removal of wild animals when they come into conflict with people.
Parrots & Other Pet Birds
Parrots and other pet birds become homeless in alarming numbers, yet few resources exist to help homeless birds. Beginning in 2022, Anderson Humane will begin accepting pet birds. Click the link below to find out how you can foster a homeless bird.
Thousands of "little critters" live in our community and, just like other pet species, they need help when their owners can no longer keep them. Anderson Humane is creating a special team of fosters experienced in the care of these species. Click the link below to find out how you can help!
