About Our Rescue Group:

For the homeless, abused, or neglected animals of the Illinois Valley area, Safe House is a beacon of hope, a place for second chances, a warm spot to rest tired heads, to heal wounds and start anew.

Safe House Animal Rescue League is a 501(c)3 (nonprofit) organization run exclusively by dedicated volunteers. We are implementing innovative and progressive life-saving programs throughout central Illinois that pave the way for No-Kill communities where no pets are killed simply for being homeless.

We focus on rescuing pets who are at the greatest risk of being killed in shelters or animal control facilities, adopting these pets into loving homes, providing low cost spay/neuter to both owned and community cats, offering impounded feral cats a second chance at life as working mousers through our Barn Cat Program.

Since 2008, we have spayed or neutered over 3,000 cats and have saved hundreds of lives through our adoption programs. Safe House is a foster home based rescue currently fundraising to build a shelter facility. Until then, all of our pets live in home environments with real families until they are adopted. This prepares them for a successful transition to your home and allows us to know each pet as an individual.

Please get involved and help us save more lives ľ volunteer, foster, donate.

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.
