About Our Shelter:

We are the Belleville Area Humane Society, a non-profit organization run strictly on donations founded in 1960.

We currently have about 175 pets on site and we also put others in foster homes until they can be adopoted.

It is our mission to find safe and secure homes for the animals in our care.

Each director, staff member, and volunteer works diligently to provide a clean and comfortable temporary home for our "residents."

Each member of our group actively assists in finding these residents their "forever home".

It is also our mission to do all of this with the least amount of expense, without sacrificing quality of life for our residents.

Through continuous process improvement and many hours of volunteer assistance, we are proud of the level of care we have achieved.

Everything we do is done with the welfare of those in our care in mind.

We accept a wide variety of donations and for further information on that please see our shelter's website.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are located at 1301 S. 11th St. and are open seven days a week from 11 A.M. - 5 P.M., excluding major holidays.

We encourage people to stop by at anytime and visit with our "residents", no appointment needed.

We also host a number of events, both at the shelter and at other location, so check our website for news of the next event!

Our Adoption Process:

We require:Once finding the animal of your choice, we ask that you fill out an application. Pet applications take 24-48 hours to process. Various things are checked on the application including: a full vet check on any previous or current pets to make sure they were/ are up-to-date on everything; approval from any landlord if adopter does not own house; and the information of where the pet will be living/ how it will be treated.

Once application is approved we require introductions on any pets or children the owners might have.

Our fees are $120 for dogs (or $135 if rabies vacination has been given), $50 for cats over a year, and $75 for cats under a year.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
