*purr**purr* Well, hello, how are you doin’? My friends call me Chekhov! If take the time to give a lonely kitty some love you can call me Cuddle Bug. I’m a solid white, 2yr old, neutered dude and my favorite thing in the world is head rubs. Some of my people here know just how to make this guy happy. They know the perfect places to scratch! They have been so nice here. The man who brought me to them didn’t understand me or like cats, but I tried to win him over any ways. I’ve never met anyone I didn’t adore completely! People make me so happy, especially if they like me too. I get so ecstatic over a good head rub and it sends me into rollie Pollie mode.*purrrrrrrr*

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.
