About Us



The Henry County Humane Society – Geneseo is a small, NO-Kill Animal Shelter. As of February 2008, we share the building with the City of Geneseo’s Pound facilities. Our section of the building has four (4) dog kennels and a large cat area where the kittens and cats live in commune style.

Our Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency located at 14606 Roos Hill Road in Geneseo, Illinois , and is operated on donations from the public. All donations go directly to help with care of our animals while we look for a permanent home for them. We have five part-time employees that have the responsibility of keeping the shelter clean. The rest of the shelter work and fundraising is done totally by our volunteer organization.

We are a growing group of caring volunteers. If you would like to help with the hands-on care of our Shelter Orphans or assist with the fundraising needs of the Humane Society, please call the Henry County Humane Society-Geneseo anytime at 309-944-4868 . If you get a recording, leave a message and we’ll call you back as soon as possible.

Mission Statement:
