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 Dr. Jeffrey & Madonna Courtright!  Hoping and praying that this boy finds his FURever home soon. It's been too long. 

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. 


Zoey is a two year old Whippet mix. She is a very sweet girl with a lot of energy. She loves to run and play, but will also snuggle in your lap.

Comet is a two year old Rat Terrier mix. He is an active dog that loves to run and jump. Comet does great with people of all ages!

Comet has been sponsored by The Crumbaughs. In Memory of Haley and Sadie. 


Charlet is a one year old Terrier mix. She is a nervous dog, and needs someone who will take their time gaining her trust.

Charlet has been sponsored by a gracious anonymous sponsor!  The Baby Soda and her parents would like for this dog to have a wonderful life. Thank you all for all you do.

Rockette is a six month old Black Lab mix. She is an extremely active girl and will need a lot of exercise. Rockette was not very well socialized, and can be suspicious of new people. She will need to go to a home where they will spend a lot of time socializing her.


Odin is a two year old Miniature Pinscher. He is a very calm dog, although he has not been well socialized. He will need a home that will take the time to get him comfortable in new situations.


Cinnamon is a six year old Pitbull mix. She is a very attentive dog that wants to please.

Buddha is a six year old Husky/Beagle mix. He is a happy dog that will do anything for a treat.

Buddha has been sponsored by Judith A. Webster!  In memory of my Missy. 


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.

Frankie is a two year old Shepherd mix. He is incredibly smart, and needs a home with someone who has experience working with dogs of this size and energy level. Frankie would do great with some sort of activity to keep him busy such as obedience trials or agility.

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!
