Fees and Hold Policy

Our fees are $300 for dogs and puppies and $100 for cats and kittens. Adoption fees include spay or neuter, heartworm test, current vaccinations, and microchip for identification. One month pet insurance covering major illnesses and injuries is offered free with adoption.Check out our Great Escape Program (participants are $60) and our 9 Lives for $9 (cats over 6 months are $9)!

While offering our dogs on a first-come/first served basis has worked to a limited extent (fewer babies being stood up and having to go back home alone, just to wait another two or three weeks, turn around and make that long, arduous trip back upstate), we were not totally happy with it. We have many people traveling and waiting for hours to take home an animal (to which they have already become attached) being disappointed as many have come for the same animal. Thus, once again, we ARE accepting applications for specific animals and we will hold the babies. However, WE WILL HOLD THEM FOR A SHORT TIME ONLY!(You may find out what that hold time is when you speak to the director (Donna) on the phone.) That will give the little fellows a second chance for their forever home even if they get blown off by the first people. We sometimes receive many applications for the same little guy. If an animal is being held for you, you will be notified. Please, do not assume that because you have sent an application for an animal that it is being held for you. As before, the adoption events are 'Cash Only.' And, again, thank you for bearing with us while we try to work out the bugs in this adoption process.

Great Escape

Cache Creek Animal Rescue is pleased to announce its "Great Escape" program. In an attempt to gain safe, warm, happy homes for some really good dogs that have been languishing here, we are offering these fully vetted, homeless babies to potential families with an approved application for an adoption fee of only $60. This program will continue until all the participants have attained their fondest dream and burning desire--their oh-so-elusive forever family. Some of these guys have slight issues; some just don't handle the adoption events well; some have just been overlooked for reasons we don't understand -- perhaps waiting for the home that is meant to be. This is the time of year when most potential adopters are looking for cute little puppies, and that is a good thing. But, some of these older, abandoned fellows will bring love, life, and an overwhelming feeling in your heart and soul that will astound you. You will not believe how fast these lonely guys will bond with you (and you with them). Many of them have known better days, and they are very anxious to recover that human/canine relationship

About Us

Cache Creek is a small animal shelter in southern Illinois approximately 30 minutes from the Kentucky and Missouri borders. We receive animals from no fewer than 11 southern Illinois counties, their pounds and shelters. Please understand these are RESCUED animals. Many of these come from very bleak situations-- not enough food, no medical care, raised in cages, etc. We provide the best we can and send them hopefully into their forever homes. We come to the Naperville PetSmart and the Shorewood Petco in northern Illinois to do our adoptions and are looking towards the greater Chicago area as well. We also have an adoption center in Joliet IL.

We are a nonprofit no-kill organization. We depend on donations to stay in existence. We are a 501(c)(3) organization which means that all donations can be taken as a tax deduction. Thank you for helping us. Every little bit counts! We are currently raising funds to build our shelter out of the flood zone and have opened our low-cost spay/neuter clinic. Cache Creek helped 1026 animals in 2012. For more info about shelter contact 618-893-2500 Our clinic has spayed and neutered over 3000 animals last year as well. For more information about the clinic, please call 618-833-4608.

Please help Cache Creek keep their doors open. No donation is too small and every dollar helps save a life.
