Friends of Sangamon County Animal Control

Springfield, IL

Our Mission

Friends of Sangamon County Animal Control is dedicated to enriching the lives of adoptable pets in residence at Sangamon County Animal Control and Adoption Center. These objectives will be served by promoting and facilitating adoptions and transfers to other animal shelters, by participating in community outreach events to enhance awareness of Sangamon County Animal Control and Adoption Center, and by educating the community on animal welfare issues.

Adoption Policy

Adopters must be at least 21 years old
All pets in home must be current on vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and on routine preventatives (heartworm, flea & tick preventatives)
A meet and greet between existing dog(s) in the home and Friends of SCAC Rescue dog is required
Friends of SCAC requires a home visit prior to approval of adoption
Children in prospective adoptive homes should be at least eight years old.
Friends of SCAC adopts dogs out to residents of Sangamon County (in Central Illinois) and the counties bordering Sangamon County
Friends of SCAC reserves the right to decline applicants at any point in the adoption process

We pre-screen and process all applications as a first step, so if you are interested in meeting one of our pets, please fill out an adoption application. If we believe that your family would be a good match for the pet (and that the pet would be a good match for your family!) we will reach out to you to arrange a meet and greet.

Friends of SCAC is a small, all-volunteer non-profit organization. Please be patient as we work through applications. Please allow about a week for processing applications.
