The People’s Animal Welfare Society of Tinley Park is a no-kill animal shelter dedicated to the protection of domestic animals and to the attempt to prevent animal cruelty in the surrounding communities. We will provide shelter to abandoned, lost and relinquished pets. We will provide humane education in animal care to the communities. We will strive to prevent the overpopulation of our pets by offering spay/neuter programs, rather than through the use of euthanasia. To promote these goals, we are dedicated to finding safe and permanent new homes for our domestic animals as well as helping the public choose the right companions for their families.

Say hello to Stella! This gorgeous 6 year old calico is the cat's meow! Stella always rubs up against her cage begging for passers by to stop by for a visit. She loves to have her cheeks scratched and to rub up against your legs. Stella came to us from another shelter and has been with us since June.
Stella is truly tired of the shelter life and would like nothing better than a home and family of her own.
Meet Capone. At 4 years old, this Shepherd/Terrier mix has had quite a lot of disappointments in his life. He was abandoned, adopted and returned due to divorce, then adopted again for 3 years and returned because his family was moving. Please help Capone find a stable FOREVER home. He will love you forever. A home with no children would be best due to size, strength and activity level.
