Shadow is a 4 1/2 year old lab/border collie mix looking for a forever home! She was unfortunately returned to SSHS because she had developed a strong bond with the man of the house and would not really let anyone near him. She is very, very sweet and surprisingly very active for her size! She behaves nicely on a leash and has gotten so much better with her manners. We would recommend she go to a quiet household with people who understand that she will need to be kept well socialized to avoid any more guarding issues. Due to her tendency to guard people/toys/food, we would recommend that she be the only dog in the household.

If she sounds like the dog for you, come in and meet her today!

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.
