As the Animal Control officer for Chester IL. I am committed to do everything possible to find rescue for every dog that comes through our kennels. We are very limited with space, as we only have 6 kennels. As hard as I try to find rescue for these dogs, when space runs out, euthanasia is not only a possibility, but a probability. No dog is safe until out of our Animal Control and into rescue.
I will allow for the transport of dogs anywhere as long as it is a licensed rescue group and that they set the transport up, and at their cost, as I have no way to transport, and I recieve no funding for the transportaiton of dogs.

About Our Shelter:

I took the job of Animal Control officer to try to prevent dogs from being euthanized and instead into the safety of rescue.

I want to make a difference, but its only with the help of rescue groups that I can see that happen.

Please consider pulling from my shelter, I may be small, but the love that I have for these dogs is huge, and the love these dogs have to give should not be thrown away.

Our Adoption Process:

In Animal Control our dogs are only safe when they are pulled into rescue, or adopted. If room runs out, euthanasia is a possibility. If you are a licensed rescue group and would like to pull a Chester Animal Control dog please email or call Elanna at

If you are a citizen and would like to adopt a dog please email or call Elanna at 618-859-4191. An application will be emailed to you to fill out on line, a vet reference check and home visit are also required before adoption.

All of our Animal Control Dogs have been given Nasal Bordetella (to prevent kennel cough) a DA2PPV shot (to prevent Parvo and Distemper) and have been Heart Worm Tested.

Prior to being adopted all dogs will be spayed or neutered, given a rabies shot, dewormed with drontal, microchiped, and checked over by a vet before going to their forever home. Adoption fees vary depending on specifics of each dog.

Act quickly if interested in adopting. Pets at this facility may be held for only a short time

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
