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!

Leila is a one year old Shepherd mix. She is a very active dog. Leila loves her toys, and will often try to carry more than one at a time.

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

Leila has been sponsored by The Crumbaughs. In memory of Haley and Sadie. 


Chester is a very special two year old Border Collie mix. He is very timid around new people and it can take a while to gain his trust however, once he knows you, all he wants to do is sit in your lap and give kisses. Chester is a high energy dog and will need an owner who is active enough to properly exercise him. Due to Chester's lack of confidence, he is being kept in a quiet room in the shelter rather than on the dog floor. If you have interest in him be sure to ask an Adoption Counselor for the chance to meet him!
