Are you feeding stray cats? Bond County Humane Society offers a program to humanely trap feral and stray cats, spay or neuter and vaccinate them at a partnering low cost clinic, and return them to the area. To take advantage of this program, call us at 618-664-4068!

We also offer a low cost spay/neuter program for companion cats and kittens! Everyone who needs specific information on your feral or companion cat situation, please be sure to call the number provided (you should reach a live person on weekday afternoons between 1-5) or email bchs4pets@sbcglobal.net. Thank you!

Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program for Dogs that Weigh 40 or More Pounds Bond County Humane Society is currently offering a special Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program for Dogs that Weigh 40 or More Pounds! The owner cost for the spay or neuter will be based on what the owner can afford to pay... and BCHS pays the difference. BCHS has partnered with Greenville Veterinary Clinic to perform the surgeries. This is available through a special grant and once the funds are used the program will end. Make sure you take advantage of this program as soon as possible. In addition to avoiding those unwanted litters of puppies, your canine companion will live a longer, healthier life and you will experience fewer headaches if you get him or her neutered or spayed. Spaying/neutering makes animals easier to train, less likely to fight other animals, less likely to mark territory, less likely to run away or roam, and avoid certain health risks and cancers. Call BCHS at 618-664-4068 now to learn about financial assistance for spaying or neutering your 40+ lb dog. In the event your dog is found to weigh less than 40 pounds you will be responsible paying the difference.

VOLUNTEER FOR AUTUMN and THE HOLIDAYS! Bond County Humane Society is looking for extra volunteer shelter workers, dog walkers and kennel assistants during November & December, especially Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays and Holidays. Call or come by and let us know when you can help clean our cat and dog pet environments! Shifts are 4 hours in mornings and/or 2 hours in afternoons! Sign up for once a week, twice a month, you choose what works for you!

Exceptional Cat Foster Oppurrtunity = Romeo
Exceptional Cat Foster Oppurrtunity!

Exceptional Cat Foster Oppurrtunity: We have accepted into our shelter a 1-2 year old, special needs cat, too frail to be a part of our regular adoption program and he requires placement in a permanent foster home or very special adoptive home. Romeo was found as a stray by a good citizen in early Spring 2014, and he is so very sociable and likes to be petted, but he has a medical condition caused by a trauma. It is called a diaphragmatic hernia. This condition causes Romeo to have labored breathing and he gets out of breath if he exerts himself too much. The vet has said that surgery is not an option because the injury has already healed. He eats only canned soft food. Romeo can probably live a full life and his condition doesn't cause him to have any other medical issues. He would very much like to be in a home where he can play floor games and be somebody's lap cat. By selflessly opening up your heart and home to Romeo, you are giving him a chance to enjoy a loving, attentive home setting instead of a busy shelter environment. You can even foster our cat living in an apartment or condo (with your landlord's approval), as Romeo's abilities to jump and run are very limited, so a small space can actually be beneficial. To meet Romeo and learn all about how to foster or even adopt him, call BCHS at 618 664 4068 or email BCHS at bchs4pets@sbcglobal.net or fill out a foster home application.
As a foster home, Bond County Humane Society will provide you with food, litter, vet care and medications. Anything you buy yourself is considered a tax-deductible donation. We ask that you treat Romeo as if he were your own and keep us updated on his status. If you ever have questions, never hesitate to contact BCHS. Contact BCHS to foster/adopt our loving and special Romeo now! Thank you! [updated October 31, 2014]

Shelter hours are 1:00-5:00pm Mon & Tues, Thurs & Fri. (Sun, Wed by appointment ONLY). Contact BCHS today to join, volunteer, adopt, foster, donate!
