“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.
Expenses will exceed revenues for the Macomb Park District this year, but its executive director said the loss can be absorbed.
The district projects it will spend around $1 million in its operating budget while taking in approximately $900,000. The operating budget covers just about everything the district does with the exception of capital projects.
Executive Director Ray Peterson said the district will rely on cash reserves to make up the difference.
