About Felines and Canines - Chicago Chapter

Felines & Canines was originally founded in 1977 as Felines Inc.; a licensed, cage-less, no-kill cat shelter located on the north side of Chicago. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, we are funded through adoption fees, fundraising events, foundations, and the generous tax-deductible donations of caring individuals like yourself. We do not receive any federal or state funding.

Up until January 2012, Felines Inc. has operated as a cat-only shelter caring for approximately 130 cats and kittens in our two-story house. After extensive thought, soul-searching and preparation, we made the decision to renovate and expand our facility in order to care for up to 200 cats/kittens and add a wing to house approximately 20 dogs/puppies – officially becoming Felines & Canines! Our mission always has been, and will continue to be: providing a safe and loving shelter to abandoned, injured, abused and neglected animals until their permanent adoptive home is found. We strengthen the human/animal relationship through counseling, education, and compassion.

Our goal is to find the right lasting and loving home for each of our residents. We work carefully with our adopters to find the right companion for them, with the understanding that a lifelong relationship is about to begin. Our staff follows up on all adoptions and is always available for consultations to help ease the animal’s transition into his or her new home. All animals admitted to Felines & Canines are examined by a vet, spayed or neutered, and kept up-to-date on all vaccines. Most of the procedures are carried out on the premises by a skilled team of vets and vet techs.

True to our no-kill policy, all “adoptable” animals are given the time, love and care needed to find their permanent home. We never euthanize for time or space purposes, and only perform humane euthanasia’s in the event of extreme, untreatable illness or aggression. If you would like to be a part of our life saving mission, whether as a donor, a volunteer, or an adopter, please contact us at (773) 465-4132. We invite you to tour our shelter and meet the Felines & Canines family.
