NAWS Humane Society Raises $19K in Under a Week, Battling Financial Crisis in Illinois


Share post:

Mokena, IL — The NAWS Humane Society, a renowned animal shelter based in Mokena, has rallied its supporters and raised an impressive $19,000 in less than a week. This remarkable fundraising effort comes as the shelter faces a critical financial crisis, threatening its ability to continue providing vital care and support to animals in need.

The NAWS Humane Society heavily relies on community donations to sustain its operations. However, the shelter recently encountered a significant setback with the departure of their clinic veterinarian, putting their funding at risk. The shortage of available veterinarians, particularly those experienced in shelter medicine, has posed a major challenge for the organization.

Despite the uncertainty, the NAWS Humane Society’s dedicated supporters wasted no time in stepping up to the plate. Their collective efforts resulted in an astounding $19,000 raised within a week of a $25,000 goal, a testament to the community’s commitment to the welfare of animals.

The funds raised will play a crucial role in helping the shelter navigate through this financial crisis. They will support the ongoing care, medical needs, and overall operations of the NAWS Humane Society. Every dollar contributed contributes directly to saving lives and ensuring that the shelter remains a safe haven for animals in need.

The NAWS Humane Society is immensely grateful for the outpouring of support from the community. The generous donations received thus far provide a glimmer of hope in the face of adversity. However, the organization recognizes that additional assistance is still needed to secure its long-term sustainability.

For those wishing to contribute and support the Mokena Animal Society in their mission, donations can be made through their website at or by contacting them directly.
