COVID-19 Shelter Update - Effective Friday, June 26, 2020
The health and safety of our pets, staff, volunteers and customers will continue to be our focus as we move into Phase 4 of the Illinois guidelines.
Facemasks will be required by all when visiting our shelter and visitors must adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Only a limited number of people will be allowed in the building at one time. Please be patient if you are asked to wait.
We encourage potential adopters to complete an online adoption application in advance of your visit, as an approved application is needed to adopt. Those with approved applications and appointments will be given priority over walk-ins.
Welcome back volunteers: We will be having volunteers on a limited basis daily. Please check the Volunteer page on our website and sign up for a time slot on SignUpGenius, using the link Welcome Back, Volunteers. To volunteer, you must be a current volunteer. No walk-in volunteer opportunities.
New Volunteer classes are still suspended at this time.
We are taking all necessary precautions against COVID-19 by regularly disinfecting and cleaning on a daily basis. If you are feeling ill or having flu-like symptoms please delay your visit for when you are feeling better.

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...
