Adopt Or Find A Pet
Streamline your adoption experience! Submit your adoption application for pre-approval before you even meet our pets!
Please help us find homes for these wonderful animals:
My name is Fantasia
A 2 year old spayed, female black cat, Fantasia has been living at the BCHS shelter since she was a kitten. She was first rescued by young girls that saw her owner throw her out of a trailer and take the mom inside so she couldn't take care of the kitten.
When she came to BCHS, she was wet, severely dehydrated, flea infested and her eyes were matted shut. We weren't sure she was going to survive. Fantasia had to be fed by syringe and get fluids at first and she slept a lot.
But after a couple of weeks, she started eating on her own and gained her strength and activity back. Today, she enjoys time with certain cats in the shelter's community room but gets shy when she's taken out of her familiar environment.
She'd like a furever home with a patient, understanding person or family. Fantasia is house trained, microchipped and up to date on all of her vaccinations. The adoption fee for Fantasia is by donation.
My name is Ellie
Ellie is an 8 year old spayed female, Beagle. She was rescued by BCHS from a high kill shelter in southern Illinois. She has several health conditions which took a while to be diagnosed and find suitable treatment plans,
but now they are managed and will need to continue to be to be managed for the rest of her life. Ellie loves people, belly rubs, and going on walks.
She gets along with other dogs but doesn't want to play with them or play with toys very much.
Ellie is house trained but will need diligent reminding work on that in a new home, microchipped, tested heartworm negative, and is up to date on all of her vaccinations. The adoption fee for Ellie is $100 but has been waived due to a generous grant from Petfinder Foundation.

Sponsor a "Difficult to Place for Adoption" cat or dog!
Sometimes a kitten or puppy comes into the care of Bond County Humane Society and it is initially too sick or too scared to become available for adoption right away.
This kitten or puppy grows up in our cat shelter or our dog kennel over several months. It is now healthy and wishing someone would notice him/her and want him/her for their very own.
BUT now it is an adult - not as cute and not as playful and not as indiscriminately affectionate as a younger animal. Many people pass him/her by each week. No one wants to adopt him/her when there is a baby animal
to add to a family instead. This is not the cat or dog's fault. But it is sad and it is expensive for us. It means that Bond County Humane Society is still paying money to feed him/her, paying money to
give him/her a bed to sleep on and vaccination shots and parasite prevention medication and toys to keep him/her mentally healthy and alert. Now you can help! You can choose a dog or cat to sponsor regularly each month and help support a pet in need until the perfect
family finally comes along to adopt it. Visit our list at Petfinder to meet the animals who need your help right now.
Then call 618-664-4068 to find out more information about sponsoring a "difficult to place for adoption" pet still living in shelter care.
Sponsor-A-Pet via PetFinder
For another way to help a pet even if you can't adopt, click on an adoptable animal's PetFinder profile and register to donate an amount that will go directly to BCHS and directly to that pet! It costs an average of $180 to provide care for a pet while s/he waits for a home. Each contribution you can afford to make enables a pet to get cared for until a new loving family comes along. They all deserve this chance!
