Tazewell Animal Protective Society (TAPS) is a No-Kill animal shelter that gives dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens a home until permanent homes can be found. We are located in Pekin, Illinois, which is just outside of Peoria in the Central Illinois area. Please take a few minutes to look around and meet some of the terrific animals we have up for adoption. Please consider adopting your next companion from TAPS No-Kill Animal Shelter. We have dogs and cats of all sizes, breeds and colors. If you don't find a companion animal that is right for your family now, please check back often as we take in new animals almost daily.
PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING A PUPPY OR KITTEN LESS THAN 6 MONTHS OF AGE FROM TAPS NO-KILL ANIMAL SHELTER
With the onset of puppy and kitten season, at times, we have multiple puppies and kittens looking for a home. We receive hundreds of applications on our puppies and kittens. In an effort to move them into adoptive homes in a more efficient manner and streamline the application process, we will be approving puppy and kitten applications in the order received. Approved applicants will be called in to meet with any available puppies or kittens to determine if there is anyone available that might be a good fit for your family. We will no longer be accepting applications for specific puppies or kittens. Additionally, we will not hold a specific puppy or kitten for an applicant. If you submit an online application with a specific puppy or kitten listed, you will be placed on the general puppy or kitten list and your application will be processed in the order received. Effective immediately, applicants for puppies and kittens 6 months and younger must be 21 years of age.
The process to adopt our adult cats and dogs remain the same. You may apply for one of our wonderful adult animals by name and we will process those applications as received.
Please note that we receive multiple inquiries daily. Response time may take up to 72 hours. If you are interested in a dog or cat, please submit a no commitment application that is located above on our adoptions tab. Applications are processed in the order that they are received. Our puppies and kittens are extremely popular and receive a significant number of applications. We ask for your patience as we work through them. Thank you for considering TAPS No-Kill Animal Shelter as you welcome your next furry friend into your life.
