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!
