Each day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. - and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born. Due to this imbalance, nearly 6 million animals are euthanized each year. Fortunately, for the past fourteen years, Bond County Humane Society (BCHS) has been saving animals from such a fate, rescuing 162 in 2015 alone! Although this may not seem like a huge achievement, BCHS is making a difference in the lives of those animals.
Bond County Humane Society (BCHS) exists to provide temporary sanctuary for unwanted, lost and neglected animals for ultimate placement in loving and responsible homes. BCHS is a nonprofit charitable organization committed to promote animal welfare through education and to actively encourage pet population reduction. We are dedicated to creating, in Bond County, an environment that enhances awareness of homeless animals and support for the humane treatment of these animals.
BCHS does not receive funding assistance from the city, county, state or any other organization. Especially NOT the Humane Society of the United States! BCHS is totally dependent on membership dues, donations, grants and fundraisers to help the animals.
Bond County Humane Society was formed in Greenville, IL in 2003. Rachel and Dennis Hundsdorfer, along with a small group of concerned citizens, founded it with the intention of providing shelter for the stray and homeless animals in Greenville until they are released into responsible, loving homes.
Bond County Humane Society is based on the core value that all animals deserve to be treated in a humane manner. Dogs and cats with no homes need temporary shelter until a permanent, loving home can be found for them. We believe that awareness and education allows animals and humans to come together, for the benefit of both.
