Hello my name is CHICHI MCGEE.  

We believe ChiChi used to be a breeder male but his shyness hindered his ability as a ladies man so they dumped him. He appears to not have been well socialized as a puppy. He was very scared at first when he came to our home but in just a short period has shown great improvement. Chichi has been here with my family for just a short time but he has adjusted quite well to the chaos that is my home. Enough so that he has become a real lover and snuggler with us. He plays well with both his younger and older foster siblings. He especially loves the momma dogs that have come thru our home. He is just a big cuddlebug now with us and loves to get under the covers at nighttime.  

He is approx. 1years old and has been neutered. He is also heartworm negative If you would like to come met Chi please call Tammy at 6187978605

DK is a sweet 9 year old loving boy who wants a home of his own. His owner was elderly and became too ill to care for him any longer. He was just neutered and had a hernia repair so that is why he has on the cone of shame. He is quite a snuggle bug! DK is up to date on vaccines and he is microchipped.

Minnie Pearl was spotted running along the ditches in a rural area of Franklin County, IL for a week or two before rescue. She had been subsisting on ditch water and had endured some severe storming and flooding, not to mention a near miss by the county mowers, in the area. Starving, full of fleas, paws blistered and swollen, she had a body score of 3. The vet figures her age between 6 and 8 months. Despite the harsh conditions she endured, she is a heart-worm negative, healthy, well-proportioned little girl with all the sweetness and playfulness one could hope for in a Chi-mix puppy. She now tips in at 10lb and is bright-eyed and curly tailed. She gets along famously with all the resident cats, dogs, and humans of all sizes in my house, though due to her small size, she'll do better in a home with older, gentle children. She absolutely adores my other foster dog, a Lab mix. She is utd on shots, spayed, crate trained, and learning potty training, but will require someone with small dog experience and patience to see her through to 100% house-training success (the reason we think she was dumped). Contact Perry County Humane Society in DuQuoin, IL, via her petfinder profile:
(Minnie is not at the shelter and an appointment will need to be made to visit with her. 
Please call us at 618-542-DOGS(3647) or if you have any specific questions about me, please email the shelter volunteer at or go to to apply.)

Bentley is such a loving guy. He immediately bonded and was comfortable in his foster home. He gets along well with dogs and cats. He responds to commands and loves his kennel. Very sweet loving little guy.
