About Us


Welcome to our site. We have dogs and cats that are looking for their forever homes. Please call us for more information about any of our animals.


We have a wish list of items we are in need of:

blankets, towels, bleach, rubber gloves, dog toys, treats, collars, leashes, laundry detergent, kitty litter 


Adopting A Friend

The dog adoption fee is $115 which includes a microchip, spay or neuter, Distemper combination vaccine, Rabies vaccine and heartworm test. The cat adoption fee is $50 which includes Upper Respiratory combination vaccine and Feline Luekemia test.

Who We Are

Douglas County Animal Control (DCAC) is the County Animal Shelter and Animal Law Enforcement Branch of Douglas County, IL.  As Douglas County has a population of less than 20,000 people, it has been difficult to get the funding required to help adoptable dogs that come through our facility.  This is changing, but slowly.  I hope that as more people become aware of our small shelter and its adoptable animals, they will help by volunteering to foster, assess behavior and create a better environment for the dogs.


Come Visit Us

Check out our new addition.  We now have more space, a cleaner facility, and a caring staff.  Volunteers during regular hours would be very helpful for walking the dogs and playing with the dogs and cats.
