Mission Statement

Friends of Sangamon County Animal Control is dedicated to enriching the lives of, and eliminating the euthanasia of, adoptable pets in residence at Sangamon County Animal Control Center. These objectives will be served by promoting and facilitating adoptions and transfers to other animal shelters, by participating in community outreach events to enhance awareness of Sangamon County Animal Control, and by educating the community on animal welfare issues.


Friends of AC was formed by a core group of volunteers in August of 2012. We work with a governmental agency, but we are non profit so we can do fund raising and accept various types of donations for the shelter. Our four main committees deal with volunteers; events; fund raising; and public relations.

Would you recommend Friends of Sangamon County Animal Control?

I would recommend the organization because it is so wonderful and has helped me, my pets and the pets of my loved ones and friends for years! I would love to volunteer with you. I am currently laid off work with plenty of time, in good health and love all animals so much. I have a 3 yr. old female pit bull who I love her so much and can't imagine my life without her. She's a rescue and was almost killed by 2 other pit bulls she had been living with for months. The "owners" left them all at home for a couple of hours and when they came back she was laying in a pool of blood and near death. Her kidneys shut down and the vet didn't think she was going to live through it for a couple of months. It amazes me that even after such a horrible attack she is still the sweetest, best natured dog I have ever known. Sorry to get carried away :-) Please let me know if you have any volunteer opportunities. Thank you,
