Thank you for considering adoption from the Quincy Humane Society!   Please check out our available pets page to see what animals we currently have at the shelter.  For more information, refer to our Adoption FAQs or contact an adoption counselor at 217-223-8786.

Below you will find our Adoption Questionnaire. All potential adopters must fill this out and return it to the Quincy Humane Society for consideration.  All questionnaires take typically 24-72 hours to process and are kept on file for 1 year. Once our adoption counselor has reviewed your application they will be in contact with you to set up an appointment to meet our animals and discuss any questions.

You can fill out an application online, which will submit to our adoption counselor’s email or you can print one out. Paper applications can be dropped off during normal business hours or faxed to us at 217-223-9471.

To adopt from the Quincy Humane Society, you must meet the following criteria.

  1. Be at least 18 years of age. A proper form of identification may be requested.

  4. Be able to spend the time and resources to provide the training, medical treatment, and proper care for your newest family member.
