Hi there! My name is Finnegan and if you can get me to sit still long enough, I'd love to be your best friend! I was brought into SSHS because I got into a scuffle with another dog. I met a male dog here before I was taken in and I did fine with him, but the staff here would rather be safe than sorry and is requiring a dog meet and greet before I go home with any other dogs. I would probably do best in a home with no young children, because I might knock them down with my rowdiness.

I would definitely make an amazing exercise buddy, if that's the sort of thing you are into!

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.
