About Us

About US

Belleville Area Humane Society is an animal welfare organization based in Belleville, Illinois. Our primary focus is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for homeless animals, including cats and dogs, while we match them with loving and responsible adopters. We have a team of dedicated staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure that our animals receive the best possible care and attention.

Quick Facts

  • What is the adoption process? We have an application process that involves a pre-adoption questionnaire, an interview, and a home visit.
  • How can I help? You can support us by donating, volunteering, or adopting a pet. We also appreciate any help with fundraising events and spreading awareness about our organization.
  • What happens to the animals that are not adopted? We work hard to find permanent homes for all our animals. However, if an animal is not adopted, they will stay with us as long as needed until they find their forever home.

Shelter Statistics

At Belleville Area Humane Society, we have a capacity of around 80 cats and dogs at any given time. In 2020, we took in 830 animals, including strays, owner surrenders, and transfers from other shelters. Of these animals, we were able to find homes for 706, which is a 85% adoption rate. We are committed to continuing our work to provide a better life for animals in our community.
