Our Adoptable Pets

Want to Know How You Can Help Homeless Animals in So Illinois?

As much as we'd like to, animal lovers like ourselves can't adopt them all. However, there are other ways to help homeless animals. One very important way to help is to help support them financially.

It takes a lot of financial support from the public to take in all of the unwanted animals we do each year. These wonderful animals come in day after day and we need the dollars that support them to do the same.

Donations should be sent to:

Perry County Humane Society, 8365 State Rt 14, DuQuoin, IL 62832

We thank you so much for helping us help them!

Donate a Bed
We have chosen Kuranda dog beds for our boarding facilities because they are so good for our dogs. We still don't have enough for all of our kennels. If you would like to donate a bed so another dog can sleep in proper comfort, please click here.

About Us

PCHS is a non-profit organization that works night and day to save as many homeless animals as possible. Our plan of action is ADOPTION! So many stray and reliquished animals are brought in to the animal control facility everyday. We are a Humane Society that is made up of a small hard working core group that save animals from euthanasia at the animal control facility. We work night and day on adoptions, contacting rescues, finding funding, and caring for the animals that are currently residing at the facility.

Adopting a friend

At Perry County Humane Society we take great pride in placing our animals in a home that is best suited to each animals individual personality, temperament, and activity level.

In our adoption process you must fill out an application. We will also do a phone interview, a veterinarian reference check, a home visit, and whatever else is needed to verify that all the information on the application is truthful and complete.

We at PCHS want to be sure that you and your new pet are a perfect match, so that each placement is a permanent one. The adoption process is a way of getting to know you, your family and your lifestyle.

Perry County Humane Society's first and main responsibility is to our rescued pets.

You will find our online application at: .
