Lake Shore Animal Shelter (Chicago, Illinois 60068) was founded in 1966 by Dr. Lloyd Preshun, a prominent small-animal veterinarian on Chicago’s north side. Dr. Preshun’s dream was to create the first animal shelter run as nearly as possible along the same basis as human adoption agencies.

Over the last 15 years, the life-saving mission Lake Shore helped to develop has gained momentum, as more people choose adoption, and as public awareness of the needless euthanasia of millions of animals has penetrated the conscience of the nation. As the number of rescue organizations in northern Illinois continues to grow, Lake Shore’s mission has continued to evolve, concentrating on saving older animals, animals with special needs, and other “harder-to-adopt” pets. Due to the particular needs of these dogs, most of our adoptable animals are now housed and cared for by our trained volunteers in a network of foster homes.

We are also working with other rescue organizations in under-served areas, most notably Southern Illinois, where the needless euthanasia of many loving, healthy dogs and cats continues largely unabated.

The mission of Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary, Inc. (Rockford, Illinois 61107) is to provide a temporary safe haven for unwanted, stray, and abandoned dogs and cats. The Ark promotes an affordable spay/neuter program to help end the overpopulation of animals in our community.

Each year hundreds of animals come to Noah’s Ark in need of a warm bed, good meal, and most importantly a forever home. Our dedicated staff and volunteers work hard to ensure each animal receives the best care possible during his/her stay.

We receive no government funding and rely on the support and kindness from our community, private donations, bequests, fund raising events, grants, and volunteer help to complete our mission.

Noah’s ark does not euthanize animals to make space to house others. We are a no-kill shelter and work to preserve life whenever possible.
