The Sangamon County Animal Control Center serves the City of Springfield and twenty five other municipalities in Sangamon County. Various elements of code enforcement and open admission results in the intake of several thousand animals annually. The animals in our care are getting a second chance at happiness and enrichment after some have experienced lives of being unwanted, uncared for, abused, neglected or mistreated. We are their temporary guardians during a time of transition from life as it was to what a future with you may bring.

Have you ever seen a more handsome boy than me? Seriously? And I’m also an active, super-friendly guy. I’d love a family that would take me for walks and play with me. My name is Buddy, and I came to Sangamon County Animal Control as a stray. I’m one of those special “Heinz 57” dogs you sometimes hear about. I’ma bit older according to the staff, but I’m bright-eyed and happy and I don’t act old... not at all.
This is Miss Feebee.
Profile: 3 yrs old, Pit mix, Compact, Beautiful, Bunny ears
Feebee has learned to walk nicely on a leash and listens to her handler. She is smart, sweet, and loves to be with people. All her friends at SCAC can't figure out why Feebee is still there. She is looking for a BFF that understands that sometimes a girl feels like a princess, and sometimes like a cowgirl.
Eliza was adopted from us as a younger kitten and returned recently due to she and the resident cat didn't see eye to eye. Eliza is now about 6 months old. Very nice girl--likes people.
Kingston is an American Bulldog mix about 3 years old, he is very friendly, loves people and just a big fun loving goof ball.
Yep, orange female which is not a common occurrence - Gina is 2 yrs old,VERY VERY FRIENDLY girl! She wants to be a lap cat and be the center of someone's attention. Her lifelong dream is of a couch, a cat tree by a window and non stop petting! She is also a princess and likes to have her mani and pedi done!
Apricot LOVES people and LOVES to play! She is about 5 yrs old and has the CUTEST little goatee on her chin (you can see it in her pictures). Apricot is not fond of the other cats but seems to do alright with most dogs as long as they are cat savvy. If you have a dog and want a cat also come check out Apricot.
