In-Kennel Enrichment Programs

DuPage County Animal Services staff work together to ensure that our shelter animals are healthy, happy, and sound in the unfamiliar shelter environment until they are adopted. Through our kennel enrichment program staff and volunteers engage animals with various activities to keep them well, both physically and mentally. Enrichment is a vital part of our successful adoption program.
