To adopt you must live within approximately 100 miles of one of our adoption sites (Benld, O'Fallon or Springfield IL), and be at least 18 years of age. We require that you be physically present to make the final adoption arrangements. We also require that all cats be kept indoors, and that all dogs be kept in a fenced-in yard, secure pen, or indoors, unless otherwise discussed and agreed upon ahead of time. Failure to comply with any of these requirements may constitute grounds for us to take back the adopted animal.
- Cats $50
- Kittens (under 6 months) $60
- Dogs $120
- Puppies (under 12 months) $200
All pets have been spayed/neutered, are up to date with shots/vaccinations, and have been micro-chipped. If you have any questions about the animals, or want to know more about the shelter, please call us at 217.835.2538.
