A licensed, nonprofit, no-kill, animal rescue center based in Troy, Illinois, Partners for Pets helps abandoned animals find forever homes and visits animal control facilities to rescue animals that need medical care, are too fragile for shelter life, or are in kill shelters. Before adoption, Partners for Pets provides each animal a range of veterinary care, which may include shots, spaying/neutering, and grooming. Since 2003, Partners for Pets has rescued more than 14,000 cats and dogs from other shelters. In 2015 alone, it placed1,348 dogs and cats in new homes.

Since it is a nonprofit organization, Partners for Pets relies on help from volunteers. They help the shelter in three areas.

1. They adopt a pet. Potential adopters fill out an online application to ensure that the desired pet is an ideal fit.

2. They foster a pet. Some pets need one-on-one interaction instead of being at the shelter. Stressed and timid animals can adapt better at homes as well. Partners for Pets covers all medical costs and food and supplies a crate if needed.

3. They volunteer with the organization. Everyone can contribute at Partners for Pets, whether it involves fundraising, cleaning, or helping at events.
