Can you spare 2 hours of your time once a week? 

HSLC volunteers care for our dogs and cats until they go to a forever home.

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.

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.

Volunteer Spotlight – Brenda DeVore

Brenda DeVore

Brenda is a resident of Lincoln, IL. She has been a HSLC for a little over 7 years!! Brenda works at the shelter every Friday. She helps clean the shelter as well as helping take care of the dogs. Brenda works outside with the dog’s majority of the time. In the afternoon she will give every dog some individual one on one time to give them some extra attention and play time.

Brenda said the best part of volunteering is meeting all the different breeds of dogs and giving them the extra love and attention they deserve. She likes to visit with some of the cats too. Brenda has one dog who is a HSLC adoptee! She adopted Saleen four years ago.

In Brenda’s spare time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends as well as going to church.

From everyone at HSLC, thank you Brenda for all that you do!
