Kay's Animal Shelter is a not-for-profit organization that first opened in 1953 in Morton Grove. In 1962 the shelter moved to our current location in Arlington Heights. We are one of the oldest shelters in Northern Illinois. For nearly 70 years we have rescued and found loving homes for countless pets. With your generous support we will continue our life-saving work.
We usually have dogs, cats, kittens, and an abundance of mixed breed puppies for adoption. Most of our puppies come from mothers that got bred accidentally, so most of the time we only know the breed of one parent. We do not buy animals from breeders. All of our pets are provided with spay/neuter, vaccinations, and dewormings. Dogs are tested for heartworm when age appropriate. Cats and kittens are tested for feline leukemia and FIV. We also provide any other vet care needed while in our care.
