Foster Pet OutReach is a local non-profit organization whose main focus is to help provide for the well-being of animals in our community. We believe that abandoned, injured, or neglected animals deserve the same care and concern as do our own companion animals. Our members feel that they have the responsibility to address the general needs of this community's animals and to champion the rights of these worthwhile beings with whom we share our world. Foster Pet OutReach seeks to educate the community in the topics of pet over-population and the necessity of responsible pet ownership. We also bring to local attention the plight of animals who have been denied the basic necessities for a quality life. Animals have an intrinsic value which is greatly beyond their commercial significance. Foster Pet OutReach is also an official shelter licensed by the state of Illinois.
