Simba is a 1 year old pit bull mix that was brought to us in pretty bad shape. He unfortunately had gotten into a tussle with another dog and he had a deep laceration on his neck. His wound was treated and he is doing well and ready for a home of his own!! He is very nervous and slow to warm up to people, so a quiet household would be ideal for him. Once he trusts you, he'll give you hugs as soon as he sees you. Simba would ideally like to be the only pet in the home, as he is very nervous when it comes to meeting other dogs! He's spent several months in a shelter, please don't let him sit here any longer!


Come meet him today if he's the perfect fit for your home!

About South Suburban Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

The South Suburban Humane Society is a 501(c )(3) organization that was started in 1970, serving the animal welfare needs of the entire south suburbs of Chicago. In the beginning, we handled all rescues, adoptions and provided foster care out of private homes. Since November 1973, our organization has been operating a 10,000 square foot open-door animal shelter in Chicago Heights, Illinois.

For forty years, our organization has helped tens of thousands of animals. We have grown from a small group of volunteers to an organization made up of volunteers and paid employees that were responsible for almost 4,400 animals in 2013. We offer extensive outreach programs including humane education, and community outreach events. We also operate two resale shops located in Steger, Illinois and Chicago Heights, Illinois that promote our organization, our animals and provide much needed income to support our humane work.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We also have adoptable cats at THREE PetSmart locations! PetSmart Tinley Park, PetSmart Orland Hills, and Petsmart Schererville, IN are both key adoption partners where many of our adoptable kittens and cats are housed until they find their forever homes.
