CCHS has several licensed Humane Investigators on staff. Humane Investigators are licensed by the Illinois Department of Agriculture to investigate possible violations of State animal welfare statutes. If you have a concern about companion animal neglect or abuse, call us at 217-344-7297 and ask to speak with a humane investigator. If an animal is in imminent danger please call police immediately.
Behavior and Training
The Champaign County Humane Society believes in positive, reward based training. We offer two beginner-level dog training classes that are open to all, regardless of whether the dog was adopted from CCHS. See our Behavior and Training page for more information on our philosophy and class descriptions.
CCHS offers a number classroom presentations, shelter tours, and educational programs for special events. See our Humane Education Page to learn more.
For Youth Ages 10-15
The Pet Pals Club offers a monthly experiential learning program for young animal lovers.
From fostering animals to socializing cats and dogs to working events, there are plenty of opportunities for adults and youths ages 16 and 17 to help CCHS help homeless animals. See our Volunteer Page to learn how.
