Oh my doggy biscuit! Hello. Hi, I’m Elana and I’m a spayed Terrier mix who only weighs 30lbs. Do you like doggies? I’m still learning and getting use to this big world. At 6 months old everything is so new and sometimes I get little nervous, but I like to learn. I’m already so much more comfortable here than when I first arrived. I definitely don’t want to live on the street again. I was so happy with the nice lady picked me up! I was so hungry and unable to find my way back home. They are so nice here. I get to play with toys and hang out with really cool people who give great hugs and cuddles. My wish is to have a person who loves me and wants to spend forever with me. Can you help me find a loving family who wants to teach a submissive, shy girl and love her forever and ever?

About Humane Society of Southern Illinois

About Our Shelter...

The Humane Society of Southern Illinois has been around for almost 60 years. We are mainly funded through donations and every little bit helps.

Our facility takes in approximately 5,000 animals yearly and we do the best we can to find homes for them.

In December, 2005 the Humane Society of Southern Illinois began an exciting new program to save pets from euthanasia.

We began working with several independent rescue coordinators to place adoptable animals in high quality "no kill" programs in the northern part of the state that would otherwise be euthanized.

As always, this would never have been possible without the kind and generous donations of our members and supporters. Please donate to help sustain this vital Life Saving program!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our shelter is located in between Carbondale and Murphysboro, Illinois just off of route 13. We are open every day except Tuesdays and holidays. Our hours are Monday through Saturday from 12:00 pm until 4:30 pm, Sunday from 1:00 pm until 4:30 pm, and closed Tuesdays and holidays.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoptions fees vary depending on what of companion animal you decide to adopt from us. Sometimes our shelter receives animals other than cats and dogs. It is not uncommon to find rabbits, guinea pigs, or ferrets seeking new homes.

Dogs: $200 Dogs over 6 years or special needs $150
Cats: $100 Cats over 6 years or special needs $80
Rabbits & Ferrets: $100
Others vary

All animals must be spayed/neutered and rabies vaccinated before they can go home. If these procedures are not already done at the time of adoption, an appointment must be made and the cost of these procedures CAN be included in the cost of adoption under most circumstances which will be discussed at the time of adoption.

The potential adopter has to fill out a pre-adoption application before any adoption is finalized. The staff at our facility will go through the application with you to make sure your home is the best home possible for our shelter babies. Our first and foremost concern is for the happiness and welfare of the companion animals in our care.

For any other questions regarding the adoption process, please contact our shelter at 618 457 2362. We will try to answer any questions you may have.
