My story

Hi there, I'm Pretzel! I am sweet, playful, and oh so cute!! I have the cutest pointy ears (even though you can't tell from my picture!) I love hoomans, other dogs, and even kitties, though I do like to chase them around and play so if you have a kitty who doesn't mind a bigger play friend I would fit right in! My hobbies include long walks, napping on my bed, and playing outside in the playpen!

Additional adoption info

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: $225 Dogs over 6 years or special needs $200 Cats: $125 Cats over 6 years or special needs $100 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.

More about this 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!
