Hey Animal Lovers, One Illinois Shelter Desperately Needs Your Help This Weekend
The cages at Winnebago County Animals Services in Rockford, Illinois are at 'dangerous capacity', so they're hosting a discounted adoption fee event this weekend to help "empty the shelter".
Animal Shelters at Critical Capacity
It's a sad story that repeats itself all too often; animal shelters all across the nation find themselves with too many pets and not enough room to house them. If you've never visited an animal shelter before, I must warn you it can be very disheartening.
Seeing so many lovable dogs and cats staring at me behind the bars of a cage just willing someone to adopt them breaks my heart every single time.
So many animals end up in shelters due to no fault of their own, and I promise you there are few feelings as great as rescuing an animal and knowing you are giving them a second chance at love!
Discounted Adoption Event at Winnebago County Animal Services
Winnebago County Animal Services has issued an urgent plea to Rockford-area pet lovers to help them find new homes for nearly 100 animals immediately. A post on WCAS' Facebook says;
Our dog and cat kennels are at critical capacity and we need your help! We have over 40 dogs available for adoption and over 50 cats and kittens!
