We are located at 2214 St Rt 1 in St Anne, IL. We are about two miles south of Rt 17.
Adoption fees vary depending upon the animal. Adoption fees for adult dogs are $225. Puppies are $250 with $50 refunded when the puppy is spay or neutered. Cats are $50, and kittens $30
Dogs and cats will already be spayed or neutered and they will be up to date on all their shots.
The fee for puppies includes the first three distemper shots. It is the adopters responsibility to have the pup spayed or neutered.
We have a very small staff who are charged with the care and feeding of all the adoptable pets at the shelter. If we don’t answer the phones it is because we are taking care of the animals and we will call you back as quickly as we can!
In order to adopt you must submit a completed application that includes veterinary and personal references. We also conduct a background check. Applications can be found by clicking the Adopt button at the top of the page.
The KCHF is committed to ensuring that our adoptable pets go to homes that will ensure that the animals are spayed and/or neutered, if they are not when adopted, and that the animals are kept up to date on all their vaccinations and preventive medication. Your current or most recent vet can validate what a great pet parent you are! Your personal references can also tell us what great pet parents you are and why adopting to you is a great idea!
We need to verify with your landlord that pets are allowed! We would hate for you to take home a furry baby only to have to return it because your landlord doesn’t allow pets. That is stressful on the fur babies since they don’t understand what is happening.
You must be 21 years of age or older to adopt from the KCHF.
It generally takes us 3-5 business days to approve an application assuming that we are able to reach your references.
We have an extensive volunteer program ranging from socializing animals to those people who are interested in working with the dogs. Volunteering can range from just stopping in to being a regularly scheduled volunteer. Check out our volunteer link and fill out an application. We would love to have you!
You must be 18 years or older to volunteer. If you are under 18 and want to volunteer you must be accompanied by an adult who will stay with you while you are at the shelter.
There are a number of ways! You can click on the donate button on this page or on Facebook and use paypal and/or a credit card to donate directly to our animals. You can also mail us a check to PO Box 2115 Kankakee, IL 60901 or stop by the shelter and make a donation.
