We started in 1997 and have since saved thousands of animals.  In 2010 alone, Just Animals rescued and found homes for 435 cats and dogs.

In 2009, the shelter started its Wellness Clinic program, further benefiting members of the community and their furry friends.

We are at the Aurora Animal Control Facility the second Saturday of every month.and at the TSC in Peoria the 1st saturday of every month.

Knowing that animal care is close to people’s hearts in the area, but not in the budget, Just Animals is bringing affordable basic care to the surrounding communities.  The clinics offer several basic vaccines including rabies vaccines, heartworm tests and preventative for dogs, flea and tick preventative, FIV/FELV tests for cats, microchipping, deworming, and basic exams.

Every clinic helps 60-80 animals and their wonderful caretakers.  In this economy we need to help all the dogs and cats we can!  We are so happy to be part of the solution to the high costs pet parents encounter.  Thank you so much for your support and donations!

If you are planning on bringing a pet to a clinic:

If you have a dog, please make sure to bring it in on a leash or in a carrier (if it is small enough).  Please no flexi-leashes or other retractable leashes!  We need you to keep track of your animals at all times.  Even if your dog is healthy and great with others, some of the other dogs at the clinic may not be.  Safety and health are our top priorities!

If you have a dog that can be aggressive with people or other animals, even just on occasion, please let us know.  If you can bring a well-fitting muzzle of your own, that's great.  If not, we have muzzles on hand that we can use.  No one wants to get bit!

If you are bringing in a cat, please make sure to bring it in a carrier.  Please do not just walk in holding your cat.  There are always many dogs at the clinics.  It can be loud and scary for our feline friends, and we don't want them getting loose and/or lost.  If you do not have a carrier of your own, we keep one on hand that we can lend you to transport your cat safely to and from your car.  Let us know!
