The Naperville Area Humane Society (NAHS) serves Naperville and the surrounding communities.

About Our Shelter:

The Naperville Area Humane Society (NAHS) is a non-profit, limited admission animal shelter accepting cats and dogs. Our shelter can house as many as eighteen dogs and forty cats.

Each animal is tenderly cared for at NAHS. Entering a shelter can be stressful or possibly even terrifying to some cats and dogs. Our dedicated and highly trained staff and over 300 volunteers offer compassionate care to each animal and work to address his or her individual needs.

The staff works diligently to match the needs of each pet with a family eager to adopt a dog or cat. While at NAHS, all animals receive basic vaccinations as well as medical care. All animals are neutered or spayed before being released to their new owners. In addition, dogs’ temperaments are thoroughly assessed before being made available for adoption.

Unfortunately, there continues to be far too many cats and dogs needing help in our society. Since we cannot solve this overwhelming problem ourselves, we have evolved our approach to the homeless animal crisis to include innovative community service initiatives, such as humane education and a behavior helpline, while we continue to re-home animals.

Our Adoption Process:

Dog and cat adoptions are the cornerstone of our mission and services. After more than 25 years of sheltering animals and placing them into loving homes, our work is still not done. There are thousands of animals in shelters waiting for homes across the Chicagoland area. We hope you will take some time to learn more about our adoption process and meet the pets currently available for adoption.

NAHS strives to make appropriate, permanent matches between adopters and our cat and dog friends. Here is an outline of how the process works:

Visit the shelter during our adoption hours to see if there is an animal that interests you.
Complete our brief "Pets and People Profile" and discuss it with an adoption counselor to determine if the animal is well suited for your family.
Interact with the animal you choose.
Let us know if you are still interested in adoption after you visit with an animal. If you are still interested, ask your adoption counselor about the option to hold, as we request that you to carefully think about your decision overnight.
The NAHS Adoption Fees are:

Cats (6 months & older) - $125
Kittens - $175
Dogs (6 months & older) - $200
Puppies - $250
We consider our adoption fees to be a great value considering the benefits you see below and our ongoing support to adoptees.

The Adoption Fee covers:

For Felines: Spay or Neuter Surgery, Physical exam by a veterinarian, feline leukemia/FIV test, microchip and registration, flea treatment (if necessary), worming, ear-mite check & treatment (if necessary), FVRCP Vaccination (if not current), Rabies Vaccination (if old enough and not current), collar with ID tag, and a cat carrier.

For Canines: Spay or Neuter Surgery, Physical exam by a veterinarian, heartworm test & started on preventive, microchip and registration, flea treatment (if necessary), worming, DA2PPv vaccination (if not current), Bordetella vaccination (if not current), Rabies Vaccination (if old enough and not current) and a collar with ID tag.

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.
