Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Our dream has become a reality, we opened the first no-kill shelter in Perry County on October 14, 2003! We are very excited and are now able to save many more animals but the shelter is still not the best place for the animals to reside.
Our plan of action is ADOPTION! So many stray and relinquished animals are brought in to the animal control facility everyday. We are a Humane Society that is made up of a small hard working core group that save animals from euthanasia at the animal control facility. We work night and day on adoptions, contacting rescues, finding funding, and caring for the animals that are currently residing at the facility. We still need you to adopt and take these animals to a great home they deserve!
We have on-going sponsor programs:
Sponsor a kennel program: $200.00 per year.
Sponsor a Spay/Neuter program: $30 a month This program will support our low cost spay & neuter program for Perry County residents. Applications are reviewed and approved on the financial needs of the family applying. We will allow as many applications for the amount of funding we have available each month.
Any donation is welcome, big or small.
If you would like to help please send your donation to: Perry County Humane Society 8365 State Route 14 DuQuoin, IL 62832 . Please note in the memo of your check what area of need you want your money to go towards.

We at PCHS want to be sure that you and your new pet are a perfect match, so that each placement is a permanent one. The adoption process is a way of getting to know you, your family and your lifestyle.

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
