Areas Champaign County Humane Society Serves

The Champaign County Humane Society serves primarily the Illinois Champaign County area through education, adoption, sheltering and relinquishment services.

Champaign County Humane Society's Adoption Process

■ Our adoption program is for individuals and families seeking a pet to live indoors and provide companionship.
■ You must be 21 years of age or older to adopt an animal.
■ We recommend that all household members meet the animal during the adoption process. In some cases, we will make this a requirement.
■ If you rent or lease your home, we require written or verbal approval from your landlord before you adopt a pet.
■ If you currently own animals, making sure your pets are up-to-date on vaccinations and care can help expedite the adoption process.
■ All cats, dogs and rabbits will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
■ Animals must be taken to a veterinarian for a health exam within one week after adoption.
■ If you are in the process of moving, we recommend you delay adoption of an adult cat or dog until after you are settled in your new home.
■ We do not adopt animals as gifts or presents.
■ If you are interested in adopting a large dog (over 40 pounds), we suggest a fenced-in yard.
■ If, at any time, you can no longer care for your pet, you are welcome to return the pet to CCHS.
■ CCHS reserves the right to refuse any adoption.
■ It is the law in Champaign-Urbana and in most outlying townships in East Central Illinois that dogs be either confined or on a leash at all times.

Adoption Fees:

■ Dogs: $115 and up
■ Puppies: $175 and up
■ Cats (5 months to 10 years): $75 and up
■ Cats (10 years and older): $40 and up
■ Kittens under five months of age: $125 and up
■ Rabbits: $40
■ Guinea pigs: $25
■ Other small mammals, exotics, and birds: Prices range from $5 - $80.

Adoption fees help cover the cost of caring for animals during their stay at the shelter. Expenses include: food; bedding supplies; vaccines; spay/neuter surgeries, and other veterinary services.
