Hi, I'm Fresca. I was brought to SSHS from animal control a few months back. After being here for a few days, the staff here noticed that my belly was growing larger. I gave birth to 3 happy puppies. Now that they have found their own homes, it's time for me to find mine!! I am a very sweet girl, but I can be a bit overbearing. I don't too much training, so would do best in a home that will dedicate time to teaching me some manners. I have a lot of energy, and that causes me to be very jumpy and bouncy, so a family with small children may not be a good fit for me. I can be a little choosy with other dogs, so if you have any other dogs, please bring them in to meet me!

I have so much love to give and if you think you are a good match for me, come in and meet me 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.
