Hand4Paws received an urgent plea from an individual who said the cats at the McDonough County Animal Shelter in Macomb, Illinois needed rescued asap. The message read:
“An animal shelter in Illinois has been “closed” to the public due to a death in the animal control officer’s family. For nearly a week, the shelter has been accepting animals into the facility but has not been adopting them out. The shelter is now nearly filled to capacity. We are concerned that some of the animals will be euthanized next week when the animal control officer returns to work on Monday. Several of the cats at the shelter are pregnant.
We are asking for your help to find foster and/or forever homes for the cats and dogs at this facility. Time is of the essence for these amazing animals. Please help – before it is too late.”
PLEASE if anyone can rescue or adopt any of the cats, the shelter is located at Highway 67 & Tower Rd, just north of the Rodeway Inn, Macomb, IL. They can be reached at 309-837-2989 or emailed: firstname.lastname@example.org Hours are Mon-Fri: 11-5pm, Sat: 10-Noon
