Each year Anderson Humane connects more than 4,000 pets to loving families. The organization, founded in 1966, has become the leading animal welfare organization throughout the Elgin area.
The success of Anderson Humane goes beyond the shelter, medical care, rehabilitation and education it provides. Its dedicated staff and volunteers understand the true value they provide is through the connection and healing that happens when pets are connected to loving families.
Another reason for Anderson Humane’s success is the partnerships they forge throughout the community. For the past three years, Brilliance Subaru of Elgin has been one of these important partners, teaming up with Anderson Humane for the annual Road Home Mega Adoption Event. Each year, hundreds of families gather at the Brilliance Subaru showroom to meet the puppies, kittens, cats and dogs that are searching for a forever home. The local event is part of Subaru Loves Pets, a national initiative that strives to get pets out of shelters and into the arms of loving pet owners.
The next Road Home Mega Adoption Event will be held at Brilliance Subaru of Elgin, 1500 N. Randall Road, on June 24, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and June 25, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. At the last event, 156 pets joined loving families.
In addition to shelter services and educational programs, Anderson Humane also provides low-cost spay and neuter services. And, the organization’s Constant Companions program provides volunteers to help seniors, veterans and others with in-home pet care assistance such as walking their dog, cleaning the litterbox and helping with the pet’s medical care. Training classes are offered for owners who are new to pet care or who are struggling with their pet’s behaviors.
Anderson Humane has been part of the local landscape for more than half a century, providing refuge and second chances for thousands of animals and opportunities for light and love for individuals and families throughout the area. Through events like the Road Home Mega Adoption Event at Brilliance Subaru of Elgin, many more animals will find their forever home.
