The first step toward adoption is coming to the shelter to meet the animals. Once you've decided on an animal you would like to adopt, you will be asked to fill out an adoption application followed by a brief interview with one of our adoption cousellors.
MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS: We take more than one application per animal. We go with the first approved application, not necessarily the first received application, and reserve the right to choose the most appropriate home for an animal in the event of multiple applications. If interested in an animal who has a pending application, please call the shelter for more information.
CCHS has been privileged to serve Champaign County, Illinois for over a century. As the only open-admission animal shelter and adoption center in Champaign County, we accept all owner-relinquished companion animals in need, regardless of age, medical condition. or suitability for adoption.
Our focus over the past decade has been to improve the quality of life we provide to shelter animals, offer a friendly and service oriented environment for adopters and visitors, and develop programs that promote responsible pet ownership and foster compassion for animals in our community.
Through our outreach programs, we address the root causes of animal homelessness and bring resources and education to pet owners in need of assistance.
