Most of the animals listed on here are in foster homes, but some are still residing at the Granite City Animal Control until they can be adopted or there is a foster home opening.

Pound Pets Inc Rescue can always use more fosters.

Pound Pets volunteers cleans the animal control building, we are the caregivers for the animals brought in. Once they come through the door, they become our responsibility. We photograph all animals and post to the Pound Pets Facebook page. We provide them clean kennels, beds, blankets, toys, treats, outside play time, walks and human interaction. We try to comfort the scared, keep the high-energy ones exercised and provide plenty of love and affection to make their time at animal control as less stressful as possible.

Sometimes they get reclaimed by their families and sometimes they don't. If they don't it is our responsibility to find the adopters, fosters or rescues to save them from euthanasia.

We get in sick and injured animals as well. They do not sit in their kennels or cages needing veterinary care. Once we see the need for care they are taken to the vet. Sometimes the illness or injury is minor and the city will cover the bill, Other times when it's not, we do. We do all of this on our own dime. We buy the food, the beds, the blankets, the toys, and all the other things that go into care for the animals. Sometimes things are donated and that is wonderful!! We pay the medical bills that the city doesn't. As with most animal controls, there is a limit on what they will do or cover. At Pound Pets, there is no limit. Broken Bones, Surgery, Parvo, Heartworm, etc., if the animal has a chance the animal is given that chance. This is not a shelter but an animal control.

About Pound Pets, Inc - Jerseyville Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

In 2014 we received our Rescue License from the state of IL. We did this mainly to help the animals in the facility that do not get reclaimed, adopted or tagged by other rescues. We also take back the animals that were adopted from animal control that are being returned because it doesn't work out. We do not want these animals going back to animal control so they come into our rescue.

With all the animals that come through animal control it is impossible for one rescue to take them all. So, we will be stepping up our efforts to bring more rescues aboard to help us with the animals that come through the facility.

We also have a Community Outreach program in our community. People can contact the volunteers for the best time to come to the animal control to pick up the food donations. This program was started to help those struggling to feed their animals. We understand that things happen and finances get tight. Often the first thing some do it cut the costs of feeding their pets by rehoming or taking them to animal control. Our goal is to keep these pets in their homes by providing food, at no cost.
