The Peoria Humane Society incorporated more than 70 years ago to help the animals in Peoria. After years of struggling to conduct cruelty investigations and house homeless animals with little funding, the Board of Directors collaborated with the City of Peoria in 1980 to professionalize the animal control program and improve the welfare of animals in Peoria.
The PHS partners with Peoria County and the City of Peoria to offer comprehensive animal welfare and animal control services to all of Peoria County. Freed from the responsibility of funding a shelter, the PHS can devote its time, effort, and funds to increasing the adoption of shelter animals and creating a humane community. And, since the Peoria County Animal Protection Services remains the only shelter in Peoria County, citizens need only visit one place to find a lost pet or adopt a new pet. No duplication of services exists, nor do the organizations clash.
