Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

The Wabash County Animal Shelter is a county-maintained, kill shelter located in rural Southeastern Illinois, and serves Wabash County residents. While only animals from Wabash county are admitted to the shelter, approved adopters from any location are allowed to adopt our shelter pets.

About Our Shelter:

WHO WE ARE...We are a county shelter with one full time Animal Control Officer and a group of very dedicated volunteers called the Wabash County Animal Shelter Buddies (WCASB). Wabash County Animal Shelter is licensed by the State of Illinois Department of Agriculture. WCASB is 501c3. The WCASB helps coordinate adoption of dogs and cats from the Wabash County Animal Shelter. Our mission is to increase the number of pet adoptions/rescues from the Wabash County Animal Shelter, to provide a clean, safe, and friendly environment to animals during their stay at our shelter, to educate the public about pet overpopulation and the importance of spay/neuter practices, and to promote awareness of the benefits of adopting a shelter pet.

Our Adoption Process:

If you are interested in adopting an animal, please contact the Wabash County Animal Shelter at to receive an adoption screening form. An approved adoption screening form is the first step in adopting any of our shelter animals. Once we receive your application, we will look over it and check your references. If everything looks good, we will let you know that your application is approved. We may contact you for more information about any part of your application if we feel something is unclear or we have a concern. Should your application be denied, you will be given an explanation.

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.
