Our Mission:

Saving Animals and Serving People.

The Assisi Animal Foundation is the first no-kill, non-profit animal shelter in McHenry County. Our mission at the AAF since our founding in 1983, has been dedicated to providing shelter, care and re-homing animals to loving, permanent homes.



About Us

We are a private animal shelter located in rural Crystal Lake, Illinois. We abide by a no-kill policy, and have many cats and dogs looking for forever homes. Please feel free to browse our website, and be sure to contact us to schedule a visit or for more information.

Volunteer opportunities

We can always use cheerful, energetic volunteers! If you can help out just a couple hours a week or have nearly unlimited time, we can find a place for you.
