Help Save Pets was originally founded as the Humane Society of Plainfield in 2000. Since then, we have placed over 15,000 animals into loving homes. Each one of these animals was given shelter, food, medical aid and vaccinations, and time to find the right home. Our doctors care for the medical and surgical needs of our homeless pets, and our Kremer Veterinary Services hospitals donate cage space, to give these precious pets a second chance at a fur-ever home. Help Save Pets is a registered as a 501c non-for profit. Please consider clicking here to make a tax deductible donation.

Will never take my cats or dog to any other place. Always get the best service from the front desk all the way up to the vet visits & grooming. Thank you Animal Care Center for treating My furbabies with the best care!!!

Love the people at Animal Care! We got our Duke from HSP and continued to bring him to Animal Care his entire life. He would get so excited when we would tell him he was going to see “his girls”! We could have taken Duke to many vets that were closer to our home, but it was always worth the extra drive for us to take him to Animal Care. The people there cared for Duke as if he were their own!

Duke Glasgow / Facebook

Great place! The staff is prompt, understanding, and has taken excellent care of my pets for over 15 years. With a busy schedule, I love the ability to go without an appointment, too!

The staff and the vet were incrbilbe. We had been to 2 other clinics that day trying to get our dog in. They were able to take us right away. We were very satisfied with the care our dog got.

Mark J McNally / Facebook

The care and attention given to my dog was above any reproach. The staff and doctors seem to have honest and sincere love and compassion for the animals in their care.
