UPDATE! Thanks to an amazing donor...we are happy to report that we have a $10,000 match for our Go Fund Me campaign! This donor will match the first $10,000 raised. That means your gift will be doubled! We are beyond grateful for this amazing gift and to all of YOU for helping reach our goal of $15,000! Thank you!
Imagine a room in your home which is approximately 12 by 7 square feet, similar to a bedroom or den. This is the actual size of our shelter’s kitchen which is used as a multi-purpose room for various core programs and services including meet-and-greets with animals and families; veterinary exams; animal intake processing; dog behavior evaluations; animal food prep; staff meetings; and much more. This room is in constant use every day; however, it is inadequate for nearly all of the activities referenced above.
There continue to be so many cats and dogs needing help in our society. When our shelter was built, there were just 32,000 people living in Naperville. Today there are over 190,000! We have experienced heavy traffic and daily use at our current building over the past 32 years; the facility is aging and in need of major renovation and retrofitting. More importantly, we have outgrown our shelter and simply lack the space necessary to meet the current and anticipated demands of animals and pet-owners in our community.
We invite you to help make “Our Dream is Their Need” a reality and join us in creating a safe and healthy place for animals, pet owners, and families in their time of need. NAHS remains very committed to providing exceptional animal care to homeless pets and compassionate service to pet owners and our community. Our shelter expansion plan is long overdue, necessary, and provides the means to accomplish our objectives.
Each person who donates will have their name in a pawprint collage that will be located in one of our new meet and greet rooms. YOUR donation will be honored in a room where potential adopters meet available animals and so many homeless pets find their forever family!
