Our Story

Placing Paws of Illinois (PPI) was established in 2008 in Lake County Illinois with the goal of saving animals from high risk situations.

One of our primary goals is to take animals from rural shelters that have a high euthanasia rate. Rural shelters are often over crowded and under funded and the animals there have little or no hope of finding an adoptive home. Often times their best hope of finding a happy forever home is to be taken into the care of a rescue such as PPI.

All of the animals that are taken into the care and comfort of PPI receive proper veterinary care and a loving foster home while they wait to be placed in the “Hearts of their Forever Homes.”

Placing Paws of Illinois is dedicated to promoting educational efforts in our community on the well being of animals, proper veterinary care, spay neuter programs, as well as love and a forever commitment from all adoptive families.
