Following CDC and the Governor’s guidance, we no longer require masks in our facility. If you choose to wear a mask, or not wear a mask, social distance or not, we respect your position, and we kindly ask that all guests in our facility do the same.
For those interested in adopting, you may fill out the online Adoption Application ahead of time, or come into the shelter during adoption hours to complete your application. Completing an application does not place a "hold" on an animal, nor is it a guarantee of adoption. You will not be contacted after submitting an online application.
All customers are handled on a "first come, first served" basis. We invite you to come into the shelter to meet with a staff member who will tell you everything we know regarding an animal's history, health, the results of our temperament evaluation, and our recommendations for its placement. This process will help you decide if the animal you are interested in is a good choice for your lifestyle and home environment. We look forward to meeting you to help you find your next furry family member.
Pets marked on our website as “Off Site” are currently in a foster home. To inquire about, or arrange to meet any of these pets, please contact us at 630-323-5630.
Please fill out this form as completely as possible. Information on this form is for Hinsdale Humane Society and our SAINT and AAPP family of brands use only.
Following is our adoption process:
Review our Adoptable Animals pages to find an animal who will be a good fit for your family. Our Adoptable Animal page is kept up to date as animals are adopted out, are put on hold, or become ready to be adopted.
Complete an online adoption application below, or when you arrive at our facility. Please complete only ONE application, even if you are interested in more than one animal.
Please come in and see our adoptable animals. If you find one that interests you, our counselors will guide you through the process. An application must be on file prior to meeting.
Adoptions are handled on a first-come, first-served basis to provide complete fairness to all adopters.
As CDC directives are modified, we will follow their guidance and provide updates on our website as needed. Our current procedures are designed to provide the optimal safety for staff, volunteers, visitors, the animals in our shelter, and the ones who will still need our help.
Please fill out this form as completely as possible.
