The Animal Welfare League is located in the southwest suburb of Chicago Ridge. The League has grown to become the largest humane facility in the Chicagoland area, serving more than 64 communities.

About Our Shelter:

The Animal Welfare League was founded over 75 years ago. In 1935, a vision became reality when a group of compassionate humanitarians came together to relieve suffering among animals.

Seventy-five years later the AWL has grown to become the largest humane facility in the Chicagoland area, serving over 22,000 animals annually from more than 64 communities. Its multi-faceted mission: to prevent cruelty to animals, provide quality homes through its adoption program, promote respect and compassion for all creatures through education, provide shelter and care for homeless and unwanted animals, reduce pet overpopulation through low cost spay/neuter clinics, provide veterinary care for low-income pet owners and relieve the suffering of all animals - is carried out by a dedicated staff and volunteers.

Today, the Animal Welfare league operates two shelters in the Chicagoland area. Our founding shelter is located on Wabash Avenue in Chicago serving the impoverished area. Our main office, located in Chicago Ridge, is a full-service shelter open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The AWL operates a full service clinic that is open to the public Monday through Saturday. The Animal Welfare League prides itself on the fact that every animal that makes its way to our door is accepted: no animal is ever turned away.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
