Update 11/16: Boo is currently going though heartworm treatment in foster home while she goes though her treatments the next three weeks. She will need to be crated and kept calm.
This is Boo. She is a white American Bulldog mix. She is super cute! She loves to go for walks and runs with Thor. She came in with Thor and their 6 puppies. She has been fine with other dogs so far. She lived in a home with children. If anyone is considering adopting 2 then Thor and Boo would be a great option! Boo is very thin but has really blossomed into a sweet, playful girl. She loves to give kisses and get her belly rubbed. Boo is 2 years old and has been around other dogs and kids.
Boo and Thor get along great! If you are looking for a pair of dogs to add to your family these two are perfect together. Boo is a sweet girl who likes to have her Belly rubbed. She loves to go for walks. Thor is a gentle boy who also loves to go for walks.

The dog adoption application is located here:
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.
If you are interested in fostering, the foster application is located here:
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.
