Fostering Cats and Dogs

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!


Mary Dowdel, Shelter Manager

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.

Call (217-737-4042) or come into the shelter and fill out a volunteer application. Fulfilling our mission is dependent on our dedicated volunteers.  We can’t do this without you.
