Our new shelter is up and running! I am still working on some things but I welcome folks to come out and look around.


Since I am a County based shelter I cannot transport dogs for rescue, however, if you are interested in having a dog rescued possible transport thru Illinois Animal Rescue is possible through rescues. For more information Email Sally OR Click here for IAR website.

A Prayer for Animals

Hear, our humble prayer, O God, for our friends, the animals. Especially for animals who are suffering; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death. We entreat for them all thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them, we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals and so to share the blessings of the merciful -- Albert Schweitzer


You can also see all the new dogs in the shelter by going to the Lawrence County IL Animal Shelter fan page on Facebook.

Our Face book Fan Page


In 2013 we still made progress towards being an entirely rescue friendly facility! Almost 90% of the animals coming into the LCACS are either rescued or adopted. Please continue to help! Even with the fire and limited resources we continue to work towards saving the lives of adoptable pets.
To continue we need your help!
To rescue a dog we need money, transport crate fees are now $10 per crate and the Rescue shelters require young dogs to be vaccinated from Distemper and Parvovirus, to do this we need people to help the shelter by the vaccine. The cost is about $4.00 each and we buy packages of 25 from KV Pet Supply. If you can help please email me.

We are a short term shelter

Please, We only have a short time to find the original owners or someone to adopt the animals here. Check out our websites often and please tell your friends! Thank You

Our Adoptable Pet List

Low Cost Spay/Neuter Assistance The Illinois Public Health and Safety Animal Population Control Program is now available to dog and cat owners who meet the eligibility requirements of the program. To qualify, the pet owner must be eligible for the Food Stamp Program or the Social Security Disability Program. Others that qualify are residents of the State of Illinois who are managing a feral cat colony and who humanely trap feral cats for spaying or neutering. Pet owners can obtain applications from the Department of Public Health, any office that distributed food stamps, or from a participating veterinarian. Applications must be approved by the Department at which time the pet owner will receive a voucher to present to the participating veterinarian. The pet owner must pay a $15 co-pay to the vet and the balance will be paid by the State. The program covers surgery, anesthesia, vaccinations and any other pre-surgical procedures required by the individual veterinarian. For a list of participating veterinarians, contact the Illinois Department of Public Health at 217-782-4977.
