Fox Valley Animal Welfare League
We operate a spay/neuter clinic; we do not accept animals nor do we adopt animals at our clinic. We work with many local rescue groups to spay and neuter animals that they have for adoption. Please see our list of groups who maintain adoption programs.
How can you make a difference in your community and help animals?
Here are five things that you can do to help:
We require appointments for any service provided, we do not accept walk-ins.
General hours of operation:
We open at 7:30 am and close at 6:00 pm
Drop off for patients is between 7:30 am and 9:00 am
Pickup is at 4:00 pm on Tuesday/Wednesday and Thursday for Cats & Dogs and 3:00 pm on Monday’s for Rabbits (Usually twice monthly)
Non Surgery Days:

Vaccination clinics are held on Various days (usually Saturdays) from 10 am until 3 pm by appointment only, check the calendar for dates.
Hours are general and subject to change based on the schedules of our medical staff. Many factors may occur that alter our schedules and it is recommended to call prior to arriving for any business matter not scheduled ahead of time.
1. Spay or neuter your own cats - Our low cost spay/neuter programs make it affordable.
Even if your cat only goes outside occasionally, there is a chance of an unwanted litter, and mating just once starts a domino effect resulting in dozens of homeless kittens. Cats can become pregnant as young as five months of age. Fortunately, kittens as young as two months and weighing two pounds can be safely altered.
2. Support our mission – keeping companion pets out of the shelter system.
Donate supplies, donate money or donate your time.
3. Provide care for homeless or feral (untamed) cats in your local area.
Learn what you can do in your community.
4. Become a foster parent - Becoming a foster parent is a vital way you can make a life-saving difference.
Illinois requires you to be a licensed animal foster. Contact rescues such as HELP, Purrs, or Catnap From The Heart.
5. Adopt – adopt a shelter cat or dog and experience the joy of a companion animal!
June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month and October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. Refer to the following list for shelters and rescues.
