found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
Luna came into animal control very pregnant. Ready to have her babies at any time. A volunteer didn't want to see her have her kittens at animal control so she made the room and brought her home. Since then gave birth to five kittens on St. Patrick's Day. This is Shamus one of the five kittens was born that day. The kittens are not ready to be adopted yet, but here is a preview of the little cuties.
*NOTE: Not available for adoption until vetted and eight weeks old, but will be available for adoption soon.
If you would like to learn more about this animal, email Pound Pets, Inc. at
The cat 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.
