Our facility takes in animals through out Knox County, IL. We also transfer animals from our facility to another to see if they can have a better chance of being adopted and vice versa. Also, we serve as the animal control for City of Galesburg and take in the animals for the other various Animal Control agencies in Knox County.
We the Knox County Humane Society are here to promote the humane treatment of animals, prevent cruelty to animals and provide education to enhance the human-animal bond and to end pet over-population.
Come Meet our Pets:
We are located at 1855 Windish Dr., Galesburg, IL. - Call for directions.
Our Adoption Process:
We have a small adoption contract that is very simple to fill out. Anyone wanting to adopt an animal must be 21 or older and have a valid ID with them. The contract just states that the person adopting the animal will take good care of them, make sure they're up to date on heath related items, and other agreements that can be properly read when the person comes in. Our adoption fees are $90-$100 for dogs, $65 for both cats and kittens. We will also work with reduced fees for the adoption if possible.
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.
