Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We serve the greater TriState region of West Central Illinois. We do adopt out of state but do not transport.

About Our Shelter:

The Quincy Humane Society was formed in 1880 and is one of the oldest continually operating humane organizations in the United States. We are a limited admission facility. In April 2008, we fulfilled a dream of ten years by moving into our new 10,000 square foot Pet Resource Center. We are a National Spay Neuter Response Team member offering high volume, high quality spay neuter services to the region.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are open 7 days per week except major holidays. Adoption hours are 11:30-5PM daily. We are open until 7PM Monday and Friday.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fees include spay/neuter, all vaccinations, de-worming and microchipping. We FeLeuk/FIV test all cats and kittens and Heartworm test all dogs over 6 months of age. All dogs over 5 months receive a formal behavioral assessment (SAFER) by certified staff.

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.
