Adoption Center Reopens Wednesday 8/27!

Great news!  The HSCI Pet Adoption Center will reopen Wednesday, 8/27 for dog and Lobby cat visitors and adoptions!  As you can see by Minnie‚Äôs Happy Dance, the pets are going be so excited to receive visitors and, hopefully, get their fur-ever home!

The Adult Cat and Kitten Rooms are closed to visitors for another week but we'll have plenty of cats and kittens to view in the lobby!

The treatment of this ringworm was made possible through the generous donors to The ASAP Fund. Because every pet had to be treated, whether exhibiting symptoms or not, the medical costs were over $600. The ASAP Fund was established to provide emergency or extraordinary medical services for animals sheltered HSCI so that general operating funds do not have to be used.

Our sincere thanks to the Donor Fund Trustees for establishing The ASAP Fund and for their continued support. You, too, can give a gift to The ASAP Fund and help provide critical medical treatment for the pets.

And, of course, HUGE thanks to our staff and volunteers for their extra efforts during this time!

Fosters Needed

The Humane Society of Central Illinois is looking for serious volunteers to become fosters for some of our more challenging dogs for rehabilitation purposes. Some dogs have not been properly socialized and are needing more socialization as well as constant praising and consistency. Others have medical needs or may be older and would thrive better in a foster setting. These dogs will take some time to come around and to adjust properly. If you are interested, please read on.
