Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve: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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call Elanna at
If you are a citizen and would like to adopt a dog please email email@example.com 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
