Facts about Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea has had a rough start to life. She has unfortunately been adopted and returned from SSHS a few times. The good news is that we know exactly what kind of family she needs! Sweet Pea needs someone who is home a decent amount, as she can be kind of destructive when left alone. She also needs someone very patient because she still needs some work with her housebreaking, as can be common with chihuahua mixes. The biggest reason that she was returned this last time was because she was too much for their resident dog. Sweet Pea is constantly on the move and needs/wants a dog that plays as much as she does. Sweet Pea is very active and likes to jump all over her playmate and nip their face.

If Sweet Pea sounds like she would be a good match for your lifestyle, come 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.
