Information on adopting a dog from the County Animal Shelter
Clark County animal control officer is Tammy See. Tammy picks up
dogs in the rural areas of the county and takes them to the Clark
County Animal Shelter. The Clark County Animal Shelter is owned and
operated by Jim and Kim Bender. The shelter takes stray animals
picked by animal control but is not required to take owner
surrender dogs. The shelter will however, take owner surrenders for
a fee and upon their discretion and if space is available. There are
no provisions for any animal except dogs at the shelter. They accept
no wild animals and no cats. Tammy’s number is 217-264-0169.
dogs will be adopted out through the Clark County Animal Shelter per
the Illinois Department of
Agriculture Laws and Regulations. Adoptable dogs can be
viewed on the shelter's facebook page.
Animal control in the cities will be handled by the city- not by
the county animal control officer.
Notify the local police for these calls.
For critters such as raccoons in the house - please
