In Loving Memory of Darrel Carlson

The Humane Society of Central Illinois is remembering our longtime, friend, volunteer, and staff member, Darrel Carlson. Darrel passed away early morning on April 19, 2021.

Darrel worked nonstop to ensure the well-being of animals. HSCI couldn't be more grateful that he was a part of our organization for over 20 years. One of the parts that Darrel enjoyed most was knowing that his efforts helped an animal get a home. He was a shining example of dedication to animal welfare and he will be missed.

If you would like to make a donation in memory of Darrel, please make an online donation or mail in a donation with a printed memorial donation form.

You can Text the word CUTE to 1-844-210-9984 or use the form below to make your donation online. Thank you!
