Bert is a 5 year old Beagle/Jack russell terrier mix looking for his forever home! He and his brother Bert arrived at SSHS from another local shelter that was very full and reached out to us to see if we could help them out. Bert is super sweet and loves to play with his brother! He is very gentle and likes to sit in your lap and get loved on. Bert is heartworm positive and SSHS will cover treatment as long as he is brought back to the shelter for it.



If you have any questions about the heartworm treatment, feel free to e-mail office@southsuburbanhumane.org.

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.
