Our Adoptable Pet List

Union County is a small county in the Southern tip of Illinois. We are known for our peaches, apples, wineries, and quaint little Bed and Breakfasts. We are about 15 miles south of Carbondale and SIU. We have a tiny shelter (7 kennels) and are just getting our adoption program going again. Unfortunately our rural roots show often in our attitude towards animals. The Union County Animal Shelter hopes to change this this attitude with education, adoption . Union County Animal Control is located at 385 Kaolin Road, Cobden, Illinois 62920. Our phone number is 618-833-4915. Please be patient with us as we are unable to return long distance phone calls due to budget constraints, but you may e-mail us at dlhawks1@yahoo.com

Adopting a friend

Our adoption fees are $60.00 for dogs and $50.00 for cats. This includes $20 that goes towards the spay and neuter, microchipping, shots and worming. Any animal 4months of age or older must be surgically altered and have their rabies shot before they leave the shelter. There will be an additional fee for the spay, neuter, or rabies if this is the case. We can let you know the amount prior to adoption.

Come Visit Us!

We are located half way between Anna and Cobden in Union County. We are located on Kaolin Road, not far from the Kaolin Clay pits where clay was collected for our famous Kirkpatrick pottery.
