We are back to being open for Open Adoption Hours on Saturdays 1-3 p.m.
Appointments can also be made for Meet and Greets during the week by calling 309-446-9721.
To expedite the process, you can fill out a no-obligation application to adopt ahead of time.
When in our shelter, please continue to wear masks and honor our safety protocols.
In September of 2017 we opened a resale shop to help increase revenue for our shelter. We were prompted to do this after hearing that there was a resale shop doing this in Princeton, IL. for their community shelter. We formed a Steering Committee to benchmark other resale and thrift shops. In August of 2017 we found our location at the Sterling Plaza. Our shop is staffed completely by volunteers and we are open Tuesdays through Saturdays. All items in our shop are donated and are always appreciated. Our manager comes to us with many years of retail and resale shop experience! After our expenses, all profits go to help fund our shelter’s operating budget.
