My name is Blair and I’m already happy to meet you even though you’re not here yet!! I’m a happy boxer mix, not spayed female and I’m only about 14 weeks old now. I was brought to the shelter with my sister Carrie when we were just little ladies by animal control when they found us all alone. We waited for our mom and dad to come get us but no one did. When that didn’t happen we decided that we weren’t gonna wait no more!!! So we are here ready to find new homes. I don’t know if you know this but we are famous. We were in a parade. I was a happy clown…. Okay, if I’m honest I was kind of a sleepy clown. Do you know how long of a walk that is?! I really had lots of fun though! I love people and am learning all about how to play with different toys. So far I can’t say that I have a favorite but I do like the rope things that have the strings on the end. They are a lot of fun to drag around. After play time though I really like it if people pick me up and hold me. Even though I have my sissy I still get lonely and that really helps… I wonder what it would be like to have that all the time. Do you get lonely? Maybe, do you think, we could keep each other’s lonely away? If you think maybe that’s possible I would sure like to meet you, please come see me.

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.
