Humane Society of Central Illinois

Available Dogs

HSCI always has a variety of dogs looking for their forever home: big, small, mixed breed, purebred. Our pets are vetted and handled regularly by staff and volunteers so they are healthy and socialized!

We update this page often as new dogs come in and others go home. Not all available dogs are included on our website so we encourage you to visit the Pet Adoption Center in person!  Adoption application process details are included on our Adoption Information page. To see photos of pets that have found new homes, visit the Galleries of Adopted Pets.

Cannot adopt any pets at this time?  Consider helping a pet with a Pet Sponsorship!

Featured Dog!

Mystery is a ten year old Black Lab. He is a big goofy guy. When Mystery came in to the shelter, he was a shocking 40lbs over weight. He is working towards his weight loss goal, but his new family will have to be strict about his diet and exercise in order to keep him healthy.

Mystery has been sponsored by Judith Webster!  For the 16 Shih Tzus who have made my life so much better by just being my furbabies. 

Mystery has been sponsored by DiAnn Fields!  Blessings to those who work very hard to get these sweet dogs adopted.

Atlas is a two year old Miniature Pinscher. When he first came in, he was very afraid of being handled. In his short time with us Atlas has really started to come out of his shell, and will even approach people to be petted.


Remi is a ten year old Lab mix available for adoption. He came to HSCI in April from a Humane Investigation and was later relinquished. Remi was in rough shape, needing to gain weight and having some lumps and bumps. Remi also has low Thyroid levels and receives 0.4mg of Thyrokare twice a day for maintenance. After lots of TLC from HSCI staff and medical treatment, he is ready for a loving home. Remi has lots of pep in his step and loves his walks!  He also is completely happy to lie next to his favorite person and get a belly rub. He is a total gentleman and always lets you know when it is time to go outside. Remi deserves a great home to relax in his golden years!

Please consider adopting this special senior. If you cannot adopt, please spread the word to help us find him a home or sponsor Remi through an ASAP Fund / Pet Sponsorship donation.

Remi has been sponsored by Sara Bailey!
