We serve any one who wishes to adopt from us. However, transporting the animal is up to the adopter.
We are a county run animal shelter full of animal-loving staff and volunteers. We nurture the animals as best as we can while looking for good, loving homes for our feline/canine residents.
Come Meet our Pets:
Visit our pets at the shelter Monday through Friday, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., and Saturday, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Off-site adoptions take place every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Petsmart on Veterans and Farm and Home on Wabash. Cat adoptions also take place once a month at Big R on North Dirksen Parkway in Springfield, IL from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Our Adoption Process:
The adoption process varies. The adopter fills out an application, and then fees are presented as needed. The adopter is required to show two forms of I.D., one of which must have a picture.
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.
