A veterinarian center in Roselle is helping out a homeless woman by taking care of her two dogs free of charge.

Roselle Animal Hospital has been boarding Linda Anderson's dogs for nearly six months.

She lost her home in Elk Grove Village when her marriage ended, and she has been living in the woods in the Northwest suburbs.

Shelters aren't an option for her because she works part-time during the overnight hours for a grocery store. Shelters have strict rules about coming-and-going, and they don't allow dogs.

"I couldn't have my dogs out here. So, I don't have my dogs right now. So, I had to make a decision," said Linda Anderson.

"I'd rather take what money I have and help them, and I can stay out here. So, but I want my dogs back, and I can't go anywhere without them," she adds.

The Roselle Animal Hospital has organized a fundraiser. Workers there say it's unbelievable how many people want to help Anderson and her pets.

If you want to help the Roselle Animal Hospital, call: (630) 307-2200.

      The Roselle Animal Hospital has been my vet for the past 3 years. To everyone who is reading this or watching the video, this place is top notch. The staff is very kind and they make you and your furry friends feel like their family. If you need a new vet for any reason, please visit them. Dr. Nicole Dahm and Dr Todd Zink are the best around and they have 1/2 price vaccinations on Wednesdays with a paid office visit. My little Toby loves them and I would not go anywhere else. Please donate and help this woman get her life back on track so she can be with her babies!! Their number is 630-307-2200. Call to donate.
