mission & vision

Illinois Valley Animal Rescue's mission is to rescue, provide care and comfort for abused, neglected and homeless animals in the Illinois Valley Area through our care center, foster homes and veterinarian sources. To promote responsible pet ownership through spay/neuter and animal behavior education. To unite the animals we care for with people who need the love and comfort the appropriate pet can bring them.  We are a not-for-profit 501 C3 corporation formed in 1999. 


Some of the duties of our volunteers include:

Cleaning kennels and enclosures, feeding and watering animals, restocking supplies, washing dishes, washing bedding, walking dogs,
