Welcome to the Livingston County Humane Society website!


Effective August 13, 2020.  Hello everyone, due to the current unrest involving COVID-19, we will be suspending our public hours until further notice. This means we will not be open during regular hours. Volunteers and community service are also asked to stay home and keep themselves healthy. We will still be active with Facebook posts and we will be accepting applications for available dogs and cats via email only. You are welcome to call and ask questions about available dogs and cats.  Once you have an approved application, you are welcome to schedule a time to come and meet the animal you are interested in.  Thank you for your understanding and please be safe everyone!


During public hours you are invited to the shelter if you can do any of these things:

– adopt an animal
– visit with the dogs or cats (it helps to socialize them and improve their chances of adoption!)
– volunteer to exercise dogs outside (weather permitting)
– volunteer to help inside the shelter in other ways.

When the shelter is closed to the public, we are hard at work attending to all the animals’ needs, health, and other important tasks essential to shelter upkeep.

Thank you to our staff, volunteers, and supporters of the last twenty years at LCHS. We couldn’t do it without you.


LCHS has a presence on Facebook to communicate news, events, and stories about our shelter. This has been a great way to share with the community and our supporters.

Recently there has been a trend to use comments on our Facebook page to express concerns, complaints, or grievances. In several instances, individuals connected with LCHS have been a target of harassment.

As a result, the LCHS Board of Directors is adopting a new policy regarding commentary on our Facebook page wherein comments will be moderated. We reserve the right to remove inappropriate comments and ban users from our page as we deem necessary.

We understand your passion and deep love for the animals in our care. We value your input and we do want to hear from you. The LCHS Board of Directors has established a dedicated email address to provide a channel for your concerns at lchs.il.board@gmail.com.

The Board of Directors will review messages and respond as appropriate. We look forward to receiving your feedback as we work together to improve our shelter.

If you have general questions for the office staff regarding adoptions, opening hours, or more specific questions about our animals, you may email these to: lchumanesociety98@gmail.com.
