My Story…

Guess what time it is? It is time to get excited for the best event in Champaign County; the Illinois Marathon. I absolutely love this event. Why you ask? Besides running, I enjoy raising money for the CCHS while I train and run the event. I will be running the 5K again this year. CCHS is a wonderful organization in our community. Did you know 1,340 animals were adopted in 2019. Vegan Chicken Biscuit......that is awesome. So, if you could donate today, maybe CCHS could help even more animals in 2020. Do your one awesome today and donate even if just a few dollars. I will really appreciate it, and the wonderful animals at CCHS will appreciate it even more. Stay awesome, my friends.


Welcome to the Champaign County Humane Society's Run/Walk for Homeless Animals Fundraising Campaign as part of the 2020 Illinois Marathon!

Our fundraising goal as an Illinois Marathon Charity Running Partner is $10,000. This amount funds the entire shelter for FOUR DAYS. 

The Champaign County Humane Society is the only open-admission shelter in our area. Being open-admission means that we accept animals despite their age, medical condition, and adoptability.

As an independent charitable organization, CCHS's name reflects our geographic location only. We are not a county agency, and we are not supported by tax dollars. We are not affiliated with any national animal welfare organization. 

Can you support the homeless animals in Champaign County by donating to and/or fundraising for our shelter? With support from people like you, CCHS was able to help 1,340 homeless animals find their "furever" homes in 2019. 

You can find out more about the Champaign County Humane Society on our website at Call the shelter at 217-344-7297 if you have further questions. 

Every furry friend deserves a chance for a lifetime of love. Together we can make a difference!
