We serve the city of Shelbyville, and the surrounding townships in Shelby County.
We are the Shelbyville Humane Society, Inc. and we rescue animals from both the pound and the public as needed. We provide education to the public on caring for their pets and why we need to spay and neuter them. Our goal is to reduce the number of pets who wind up in the pound and eventually are euthanized.
Come Meet our Pets:
At the Shelby Humane Society, Inc. Shelter located at 1309 W. S. 7th, Shelbyville, Illinois. By appointment. Call 217-774-DOGS.
Our Adoption Process:
We have an adoption contract, with a fee of $40.00 for Dogs, and $20.00 for Cats. We like for our Adopters to spend some time with the Dog or Cat to get acquainted, and look over some information as to what to expect when adopting a pet.
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.
