Adopt Or Find A Pet
Please help us find homes for these wonderful animals:
My name is Rocky
Rocky the longhaired cat wants a new home for the New Year! He is less than a year old and has lived in a foster home with other cats and dogs since he was 2 weeks old and getting bottle-fed. Rocky is a large happy kitten, very loving and playful, chasing dog tails, invisible friends and monsters throughout the house.
If you are interested in adopting Rocky, since he is fostered, please call or email BCHS to make an appointment so he and his foster mom can meet you at our cat shelter. Let's get Mr Rocky into a furever home for the holidays! The adoption fee for Rocky is $90.
My name is Happy
Happy is a 6 year old Boxer mix. She was rescued from county animal control by BCHS and a tech at the vet office gave her her name. She needed treatment for a bad skin infection and her coat is still growing back, but she really fits her name: HAPPY!
She is playful and affectionate and is even learning to play on the BCHS agility equipment. She knows basic commands and walks well on leash.
The adoption fee for Happy is $100.

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!
