Facts about Sissy
Breed: Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) Mix
Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
I am already spayed.
My name is Sissy and my sister and I were brought into the shelter because our owner didn't have enough time for us. We can be very active and playful, but we also really enjoy snuggling!! The good news with having two dogs is that we can wear each other out and basically just be each other's best friends. We are pretty petite girls. I can be a little more nervous at first when meeting new people, so just be patient with me. We are still pretty puppy-like, so just keep that in mind!
We LOVE to go swimming in kiddie pools, so we would make perfect camping and fishing companions, if that's the kind of thing you are into!
We have a really great friend that volunteers here at the shelter and she would love to answer any questions you might have about us. Feel free to e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
