The Humane Society of McDonough County is doubling down on what it called an overwhelmingly successful fundraiser from 2014.

Western Illinois University

A former Western Illinois University professor who's a longtime Macomb resident is urging the community to join him in donating to the Humane Society of McDonough County.

“Pretty Girl” is the name for a playful cat at the McDonough County Animal Shelter. She has called the shelter home since November. Like too many other cats there, she hasn't had a “bite” for adoption.

The Humane Society of McDonough County is hoping a March promotion will encourage more adoptions of cats.

Society board member Kathy Chambers said the group hopes to team up with the county to offer discounted adoption fees on cats for the month.
