The South Suburban Humane Society (SSHS) incorporated in 1970 as a small group of volunteers who brought homeless pets into their homes and worked to find them permanent homes.  From those humble origins, we grew to a 501c3 nonprofit organization operating a 10,000 square foot shelter, a separate Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic, partner in a Low-Cost Veterinary Services Clinic, an adoption center location in Homewood, and far-reaching community services with a $1.8 million budget.  For the last ten years, SSHS has implemented a progressive animal welfare agenda.
