Louisa is a 1 1/2 year old Chihuahua that has a rough start to life. Unfortunately she was bred over and over again so that people could make money off of her puppies. All of that is behind her now and she has a new lease on life! Her last litter of puppies have been weaned, adopted and now Louisa is ready for the forever home that she deserves. She is currently in a foster home with other dogs and cats and she is fantastic with everyone. She loves to snuggle close to her people and she is just an all around sweet dog.

Please contact her foster mom at to set up a meet and greet, or to find out more information about her!

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.

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.
