The Champaign County Humane Society was incorporated in 1951 by a diverse group of local citizens who cared deeply about animals. Our first shelter was built near Bondville, Illinois and in June of 1988 we moved into our current shelter in Urbana. Our name reflects our geographic location only. We are not a government body and we are not supported by tax dollars. We are not affiliated with any national organization. We do not receive funds from the United Way. We are an "open door" shelter and accept all animals needing shelter, regardless of age, physical condition or adoptability. As a local, not-for-profit charity, we exist through the generosity of many individuals and businesses and are supported by a community that cares.
