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!

Hi, my name is Samsonite! I am a one year old Mastiff mix. I am available for adoption through the Humane Society of Central Illinois. I am a big boy - just over 100lbs - and like many large breed dogs I am already showing signs of Hip Dysplasia. I am currently in a foster home where I am learning some basic house manners, and building up my strength. Don't let that fool you though, I still love to play!
I am looking for a home where they will keep me in shape with consistent exercise, and help me stay comfortable as I get older with vet recommended treatment. If you think that you might be a good match for me, get an application in with the adoptions staff and then they will set up a time for you to meet me! I have so much love to give!
Samsonite has been sponsored by Dane, Kristen & Donaghy Brummett!
