About Us

Aid to Animals is an Illinois shelter concerned with finding homes for some of the millions of homeless animals in our country.

We are a 501-C-3 Non for Profit organization since 1971. Founded by Stacey Vrame, she continues to work towards the goals she set in 1971.

We are strong advocates that adult dogs and cats can make the best pets for many reasons. Also, most potential adopters want puppies and kittens, however, when they realize the work and destruction involved, many times the kittens and puppies are given up to the shelter. Adults are calmer and learn quickly. They are extremely appreciative of the chance for a new home. Please consider an adult pet instead of a youngster.

In the spring, there are many homeless pregnant cats who we place in foster homes. The kittens are spayed or neutered and then place for adoption. The mama cats are also spayed and placed for adoption.

Many times we also rescue dogs from shelters and holding facilities when their "time" is up. We try to rescue those sweet, loving animals that might find a home.

Open your heart...

Please open your heart to a mature cat, 4 to 7 years old. They have all suffered abandonment, starvation, and where left to die. They deserve a home of their own where they can trust humans again.

Some are still a little shy and some are bonded with their mates and must go together and some would like to be the only cat. All they need is a chance, patience, and love.

If you cant adopted-maybe you can foster. A shelter is no place to live out your life especially if you’re a great cat and have a lot of love to give. Fostering all food is provided.
