About Kankakee County Animal Control & Adoption Center
About Our Shelter...
We are a governmental agency catering to the many stray, abandoned, neglected and needy pets within Kankakee County. We are committed to educating the public on animal welfare & care including necessity of vaccinating, microchiping and spay/neuter to reduce pet over-population.
Many of these animals come to us as strays or their owners refuse to care for them. We work very hard with very limited resources to provide these animals with all they need and to find them new, loving and permanent homes.
However, we stand firm with the following: * We will not accept, nor allow to be placed on us, the guilt that belongs to the owners of these pets. We did not cause these pets to become a problem or inconvience to their owners, we did not cause their owners to move, to have children, to become allergic, or to become ill.
