July Update: The Barn is Open!
The Adoption Center and Family Pet Care Center (FPCC) now allow walk-ins.
We still recommend calling the Adoption Center at 815-784-5924 and making an appointment to see our animals. This way the animal you are interested in will be there to visit with.
From 9:00 a.m to 12:00 p.m. our dogs have outside time so you're wlecome to visit them in the outside pens. After 12:00 p.m the dogs will be inside. Please ask an associate to bring them up for you to see.
Available cats can be viewed anytime during business hours.
BARN ON BASELINE NEWS
For over 40 years The Barn on Baseline has rescued the dogs and cats that no one else is willing to help.
We got our start in 1975 and it's taken a lot of love, hard work, and dedication, but the animals continue to make every day a joy for us!
It takes a lot to run and maintain an animal shelter, so please consider helping out in any way; volunteering your time, monetarily, or donating goods we need to keep our four-legged friends happy and healthy!
Our staff works 365 days a year. That includes Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. It takes dedication to care for more than 120 animals every single day of the year.
