  • 1. They REALLY know what they're doing!

    by: WarPony

    I actually volunteer here, but don't think I am giving them a good review just because I 'work' for them! =) This is one of the most well organized shelters I have seen in my life. They have strict rules for volunteers and employees, and they enforce them well. They are clean and sanitary. You hardly ever see feces in the dog pens and the litter boxes are always being cleaned by a volunteer. None of the animals on display are ever sick, they take their sick animals to the back and care for them until they are well - this helps to insure you don't adopt a sickly animals. Which is awesome! These people REALLY know what they are doing. They aren't taking on more than they can handle, but they are still making a difference for the better in the Illinois area. I LOVE this shelter... I recommend it to anyone!

    Pros

    Clean, Sanitary, Well organized

  • 2. Doing a great job!

    by: mewbaby1

    This is a great place and they do great work. The place is clean and the staff are always friendly and happy to help with questions or whatever. The only thing that I find mildly frustrating is that the adoption process makes you feel like your a entering the Secret Service instead of wanting to give a pet a home. I understand the reasons behind it but I'd prefer an interview over the laborious application.

    Pros

    Larger Location so they can take more pets in need

    Cons

    It's a lot of hoops to adopt a pet that just wants a Mommy and Daddy!

  • 3. A great place to find family members

    by: ChristieB

    Our family consists of 4 rescues from this facility. We recently lost one of our dogs to old age. This group has a lot of local support and the support of many corporations in the area. \r\n\r\nThe staff and volunteers are great. They participate in many local functions so that the community has the chance of meeting the pets in various locations.\r\n\r\nIf you are looking for a great pet, please check out the Human Society of Central Illinois. \r\n\r\n

  • 6. One of the best in central Illinois

    by: tdudis

    Thumbs up to this shelter and their assistance to Pets Without Parents. They take our cats and dogs periodically.. as often as they can. They SAFER test their dogs and are knowledgeable about dog behavior and what kind of dog makes a good pet. \r\nThanks to Jen and her staff for helping out Pets Without Parents and the critters of Mason County!

    Pros

    Brand new facility, helpful staff, close in proximity
