A 100 N Virginia Street (US Hwy 14), Crystal Lake, IL 60014 shelter helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats.
1 - 2 of 2 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We are a division of McHenry County (IL) Department of Health, and provide municipal Animal Control services for the county. Our offices and Pet Adoption Center are located in Crystal Lake; we serve all of McHenry County.
Friends of McHenry County Animal Control & Adoption Center is the non-profit group that supports the Adoption Center; we work with the Animal Control staff to take care of the adoptable pets, increase awareness of MCAC services and adoptable pets, and educate our community about responsible pet ownership and the prevention of cruelty to animals.
We're the municipal animal shelter for McHenry County, IL. Many wonderful pets are found as strays in the cities around McHenry County; we give them refuge at the shelter until their families reclaim them. Unfortunately some dogs, and a great many cats, are never reclaimed by their families.
If they aren't, we spay/neuter the cat or dog, give them all the necessary (age-appropriate) shots, and microchip them. They're then moved into our Adoption Center to wait for their new family to discover them!
(We also bring cats and dogs to off-site adoption events, including weekends at Petsmart in Crystal Lake, occasional weekends at On Angels' Wings Pet Adoption Center in Crystal Lake, and adoption events sponsored by the McHenry County Animal Welfare Coalition, of which we're a member.)
We're located at 100 N. Virginia Street (at the intersection of Rt. 14 and Woodstock Street, 1 block south of Rt 176).
Our Pet Adoption Center is open 10:30 - 4:30 Monday - Friday (until 6:30 on Wednesday), and 10-2:30 on Saturday. We are closed on Sunday.
We also bring pets to many offsite adoption events; please follow us on Facebook for the latest news on where we'll be! (Search for McHenry County Animal Control Adoption Center on Facebook, or @McHenryCtyPets on Twitter.)
