Humane Society of Central Illinois

Available Rabbits and More

HSCI also has a variety of pets other than cats and dogs looking for their forever home such as rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, birds, ferrets and horses. Our pets are vetted and handled regularly by staff and volunteers so they are healthy and socialized!

We update this page often as new pets come in and others go home. Not all available pets 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!

Turbo Pippen

Turbo and Pippen are two year old female guinea pigs. Turbo is more skittish of the two, but Pippen does not mind being petted. These two will need to be adopted together.

Adopted! Mr. Tumnus

Mr. Tumnus is a five-year old English Budgie. He sings and talks a bit, and loves to play with his toys. Mr. Tumnus comes with a large cage filled with accessories.

Adopted! Chip

Chip is a big eighteen year old registered buckskin Appaloosa gelding. Although he has extensive training, he has permanent damage to his front legs and feet, the result of being ridden too hard at too young an age. However, he could be ridden lightly, if given painkiller the day before a ride and maybe the day of a ride as well. He would be an excellent therapy horse because at heart he is a big dog. He could be a beautiful pasture pet. He gets along well with other horses. Please give him a chance to live out his life with all the love he deserves.

Please help, they need you!
