Open for Adoptions by Appointment Only

In order to protect the health of our staff and visitors, we have discontinued open-hours for browsing adoptable animals. 

Instead, we are facilitating adoptions by appointment.  To start the process, please view our available pets, and then call 217-344-7297 to make an appointment to meet your new best friend. 

For more details about this new process, please see the March 23 Statement from the Executive Director.

Pet Spotlight

Simba just can't wait to be king (of your castle)! Simba is a 7 year old feline who loves to snuggle. He has quickly won the hearts of our staff with his quirky smile and affectionate demeanor. He is a conversationalist through and through so you never have to worry about being lonely again! Tune in as animal care staff member, Justina, describes this handsome guy!
