McDonough Shelter Finds More Homes for Pets

Jul 30, 2012

The McDonough County Animal Shelter is finding more homes for more pets.

Just over a year ago, the county had a complete turnover of its animal control officers.

Linda Jani chairs ths county committee that oversees the shelter's operation.

She says, “We're very happy with that trend because we like to see the animals going to good homes. Nobody likes to euthanize (animals) but occassionally  it's necessary.

McDonough County won't have a web site right away. However, the board's Human Resources and Planning Committee is laying the groundwork for the project.

Chair Linda Jani said the current budget does not have any money for the project. She said the committee is looking at a number of issues and sees the website as a long-term goal.

She said, “We're trying to get some information together because then if we do get a website  there are legal requirements for what has to be on there.”
