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.

In addition to pet adoptions, we also offer low cost spay/neutering services, vaccinations, and microchipping.  Please visit the Services section of our site to learn more.  

On Thursday, June 11th, Hacienda Fuentes in Pekin, Illinois is hosting TAPS night.  From 3:00 p.m. until close, they'll donate a portion of their proceeds back to TAPS to support our dogs and cats.  We'll have animals available on-site as well.  Join us on June 11th to eat out for a great cause.
