Pet Central helps the community by example and action. We uphold the highest standards in progressive animal sheltering. We strive to provide education and support to pets and people so that they can stay healthy and remain together.
We focus on a non-judgemental approach that follows the three E’s: Educate, Encourage, Enable.
Pet Central believes that pets and people belong together - that financial circumstances alone are not reliable indicators.
Pet Central Helps! was founded by Lisa K. Kitchens, former Shelter Director and founder at Wish Bone Canine Rescue. Their advocacy also helped to spur positive changes at McLean County Animal Control, thus ending the killing of animals in Illinois' last gas chamber. She has put together a progressive plan that will ultimately help to resolve barriers to the welfare and health of local pets and their people, thus keeping them safe. She looks forward to working with their Board of Directors, Council of Advisors, and enthusiastic supporters to bring Pet Central Helps! to our community, in order change lives for the better.
