Humane Society of Logan County, Illinois
To adopt a pet we ask that you visit the HSLC Shelter at 1801 E. Lincoln Parkway, Lincoln, Illinois 62656 to fill out the adoption forms. If you have any questions or need more information please call us 217-737-4042. Thank you.
The Humane Society of Logan County is offering classes to prepare those interested in becoming a licensed humane investigator. The Department of Agriculture of Illinois usually tests in October or November. Humane investigators sponsored by HSLC respond to calls from the public who believe an animal is being abused or neglected. Their response to the call is based on the Illinois statutes regarding that particular situation. Investigators are licensed for two years and work on a volunteer basis. If interested or for more information, call 217-648-2703 or 217-737-4042. Applications, which can be picked up at the shelter, will be accepted until Friday, September 2, 2016.
HSLC IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday:
10:00 AM to 4:30 PM
The HSLC SHELTER at 1801 East Lincoln Parkway has lively, adorable kittens, puppies and young adult cats and dogs ready for adoption.
The successful operation of the HSLC shelter going forward will depend on the dedication and willingness of our volunteers.
We will need your help every day of the year. Caring for abandoned, abused and neglected dogs and cats is a huge responsibility.
A Need For Loving Foster Homes For Homeless Dogs and Cats
Since the Humane Society of Logan County Shelter has been in operation the number of foster families has dwindled to almost none. Granted, most of the animals can be taken directly to the shelter and kept there until they are adopted. But, there are exceptions. Consequently, foster families are still very, very important.
HSLC needs foster families for:
- Cats with feline leukemia
- Cats that are too stressed to reside in a shelter
- Cats in danger of being euthanized
- Cats who need a break from living with several other cats
- Cats needing extra socialization
HSLC needs foster families for:
- Dogs who are living at animal control
- Dogs with special needs such as an injury, epilepsy, diabetes, etc.
- Dogs who need a break from living in a kennel
- Dogs needing extra socialization
- Dogs who need training.
Please consider becoming a foster home. With the shelter in place, a foster home might be a short term placement for an animal, but it is invaluable. Call Wanda Stevens at 217-648-2703 or 217-737-4042 to learn more about fostering. HSLC needs you!
HSLC volunteers care for our dogs and cats until they go to a forever home.
Can you spare 2 hours of your time once a week?
We are in need of volunteers at the shelter to help us with the dogs and cats. We will train you. You will work as a team with other caring and generous volunteers who graciously give of their time to clean and socialize the dogs and cats.
We volunteer 7 days a week. The dog schedule is 8:00 AM, 11:00 AM and 5:00 PM. The cat schedule is 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM. You will get to know and love our dogs and cats and rejoice with us when they go to their new forever homes. That’s really what it’s all about.
