MURPHYSBORO (WSIL) -- News 3 WSIL has partnered with the Southern Illinois Community Foundation to spotlight local non-profit organizations in our Giving Tuesday series. This week's featured non-profit organization is the Humane Society of Southern Illinois.
For the last 66 years, the Humane Society of Southern Illinois has been the only open access animal shelter in Southern Illinois. HSSI works with rescue groups to transport animals from their facility to other areas for adoption. HSSI also has a low cost spay/neuter program, and strives to place fully vetted pets in their forever homes.
In 2021, HSSI has sent over 1400 animals to rescues, with a "save rate" of 99.48%. They are located in Jackson County, but take in animals from outside areas and do not turn animals away.
