Mission Statement

The primary purpose of Strays Halfway House is to place lost and abandoned pets in loving, permanent homes when it is not possible to reunite them with their original owners. This is accomplished through a network of Foster Homes.

Description

Strays Halfway House (SHH) was founded in 1981 to serve the lost and abandoned animals throughout the Chicagoland area. SHH is a dedicated, non-profit organization staffed completely by volunteers who work out of their own homes. Additionally, SHH was the first licensed animal shelter in Illinois to run strictly out of foster homes. Strays' primary purpose is to place lost and abandoned pets in loving, permanent homes when it is not possible to reunite them with their original owners. These pets are placed in foster homes until a permanent home can be found. This foster home model is the best alternative to cage-filled shelters, eliminating psychological damage to the animals and enabling the foster home to learn about the personality and needs of each individual animal. Such a process facilitates better matches between the animals and their new forever homes.
