Clark County Animal Shelter & Animal Control


Information on adopting a dog from the County Animal Shelter

(217) 826-1380



The Clark County animal control officer mainly picks up dogs in the rural areas of the county and takes them to the county dog pound. Dogs that are harassing livestock or just strays may be picked up by calling Randy Miller at (217) 826-2752. Randy asks that pickups be confined to regular week-days, although he will pick up animals on an emergency basis on week-ends. The pound has no provisions for wild "critters" such as raccoons, possums, etc.

NEW -The County Animal Shelter does have facilities to accommodate cats.

Animal control in the cities is handled by the city -
not by the county animal control officer.

For critters such as raccoons in the house - please call a local pest control company
