Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We serve the City of Colona, but we would be happy to find you a new best friend wherever you live!!

About Our Shelter:

Hi. My name is Suzanne Bogart. I am the Interim Chief of Police for the Colona Police Department. I enjoy assisting with our Shelter and am dedicated to the welfare of our animals and homeless pets. Our Animal Control Officer, Roger Reed, and our Administrative Secretary, Laura LaMantia, are also working hard to find homes for the many wonderful animals that come to our shelter.

Regretfully, due to a lack of space and funding, our agency has been forced to euthanize when the shelter becomes too full. It is a heartbreaking experience when we must choose to euthanize one of our four-legged friends due to a lack of space, manpower, and funding, but we are always searching for ways in which to save each and every one of them no matter how long it takes. Until then, we will work to continue adopting out as many of these wonderful creatures as possible.

If you are looking for a dog or cat, I hope you will consider checking our shelter. We might just have your "new best friend" housed there.

Come Meet our Pets:

We have a small shelter in the City of Colona not far from the Police Department. We house both cats and dogs. If you would like to contact me for information, or to make an appointment to see a dog or cat, please call the number listed (309-792-1511) or 309-792-0626. I am located at the Colona Police Department. If I am unavailable, you can ask for Administrative Assistant Laura LaMantia. If Laura cannot answer your questions, she will ensure that your questions are forwarded to me or our Animal Control Officer, Roger Reed, and one of us will return your call as soon as possible. You can also email me at the Shelter e-mail address listed.

Our Adoption Process:

We have minimal adoption fees, but you must complete a pet adoption application if you are intersted in adopting a dog or cat. We do reserve the right to deny an adoption if we believe it is in the best interest of the person or the pet.

We require proof of vaccination within 30 days after adoption.

If you live in the City of Colona and you adopt a dog or cat, you must also purchase a pet tag for $3.00.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
