Dog, cat, raccoon, opossum, hawk.
They're all animals.
Anderson's mission is to connect people with animals in mutually beneficial ways. That's why a merger between Anderson and Fox Valley Wildlife Center makes sense; strengthening both organizations and saving more lives.
On April 4, 2020, Anderson Animal Shelter publicly announced that Fox Valley Wildlife Center and Anderson Animal Shelter have merged. Although our organizations provide different animal-related services to our community, we are stronger as one organization.

Our new organization will eventually be known as Anderson Humane Center. Anderson Humane Center will be built on 124 acres in Kane County, now owned by Anderson thanks to a generous donation by Steve and Mary Hinze in memory of Dottie Hinze.
Anderson Humane Center Mission:
Creating mutually beneficial connections
between people and animals
through programs that raise awareness and inspire kindness, empathy and respect throughout our community.
Respect. Protect. Connect.
