Knox County Humane Society (IL) Animal shelter in Galesburg, IL

We the Knox County Humane Society are here to promote the humane treatment of animals, prevent cruelty to animals and provide education to enhance the human-animal bond and to end pet over-population.


We have a small adoption contract that is very simple to fill out. Anyone wanting to adopt an animal must be 21 or older and have a valid ID with them. The contract just states that the person adopting the animal will take good care of them, make sure they're up to date on heath related items, and other agreements that can be properly read when the person comes in. We will also work with reduced fees for the adoption if possible.
