If you're looking for a goofy boy, Vinny is your guy! He was hit by a car and had his leg broken in several places when he first came to us. Dr. Creese had to pin his hip, so he walks with a bit of a limp, but can run and play with the best of them now. He's a chaser, so cats and smaller dogs are not recommended.
I was adopted for a while. But, they had a cat and a small dog and once I found my legs would hold me, I learned I like to chase little things. So, I had to come back to St. Francis. I've been spoiled rotten before and I love it. I am looking for a forever home where I can get all the attention or where there is another dog my size or larger. It's just too much fun to chase the little ones and I can't help myself.

Does not play well with small dogs or cats.

About St. Francis Care

About Our Shelter...

We are a no kill shelter. We house about 100 dog/cats at a time. We also house the first low cost spay neuter clinic in Southern Illinois. This service is offered to low income individuals who can't otherwise afford to spay/neuter their dogs or cats. We also have taken in injured animals and provide the medical care they need. Our veterinarian is on staff full time.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets can be visited at St Francis CARE Monday through Friday from 8:00 to 4:30, Saturday from 8:00 to 3:00 and on the last Sunday of each month from 10:00 to 2:00. We also take some of our dogs and puppies to the Carbondale Petco the 1st and 3rd Saturday or each month.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process involves an application and contract.
All of our pets are dewormed, fully vaccinated (Distemper, Parvo, Bordetela, Rabies), microchipped, and spayed/neutered. All dogs are heartworm negative and cats are FELV/FIV negative.
The adoption fee is $250.00 for puppies and dogs. Although, we do have adult dogs who have been with us for an extended period of time "discounted" to $100.00 not because they are any less valuable but to encourage the public who is generally most interested in puppies to consider an adult or senior.
The adoption fee for cats & kittens is $50.00 for 1 or $75.00 for 2.
