Pet of the Week
Hi everyone! My name is Sydney and I am a four year old female Australian cattle dog mix! I'm a very shy girl but once I know you are my friend I will come up to you for pets and attention. I know how to sit for a treat and will give you kisses in return. I enjoy going outside for my daily walks so I can see what is happening in the world. more...

Volunteerism is an integral part of the HSCI and enables us to make a difference in the lives of thousands of homeless pets. We could not exist without the time, effort, and enthusiasm that each volunteer commits to giving. If you are interested in volunteering, see the list of Volunteer Opportunities.
There are many ways in which you can include the Humane Society of Central Illinois (HSCI) as a part of your estate plan, and when done properly the inclusion of a charitable beneficiary such as the HSCI as a part of your estate plan can not only allow for your generosity to benefit animals in need, but it can provide tax benefits that may benefit the non-charitable beneficiaries of your estate plan as well. read on...
The ASAP Fund was established by the Donor Fund Trustees to provide emergency or extraordinary medical services for animals sheltered at the HSCI.
