My story

Hello there! My name is Opie! Aren't my helicopter ears just the coolest? I am just a baby that was being sold at a farm store way too young. I love kids and attention. I am a talkative little guy and have a big personality.


* Rabbits are great to have as pets, and can live to be 10-12 years old! Their teeth always grow, so sometimes their exact age is hard to determine. All of our rabbits are indoor pets and a large dog crate is perfect for housing them. They can be trained to use litter boxes. Rabbits need time out of the cage in an area that has been bunny-proofed as they like to chew. Feeding them requires Timothy hay 24/7 and pellets (no seeds or colorful pieces) to supplement their diet.

Our Adoption Process:
*You must complete an adoption application before meeting an animal.
*We do all checks on references and vet checks.
*Please let your references know we will be calling.
*Once approved, you can set up an appointment to meet any of the animals at the Granite City Animal Control, or the ones in foster homes.
*There will be a meet and greet and then a home visit.
*After that you will sign an adoption contract and pay the adoption fee.

Many times we also get feral cats or semi-friendly cats (can be petted but doesn't like to be held) needing barn homes. You will need to provide shelter and food. There are not any adoption fees for barn cats (donations are accepted) but you will still need to fill out the cat adoption form. Just list the number of barn cats you are wanting.

We are a small foster based rescue but some of our animals are residing at the Granite City Animal Control in Madison County, Illinois until they can be adopted, fostered or pulled by another rescue.

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.

Pound Pets Inc Rescue can always use more volunteers.

We are always looking for licensed rescues to pull cats (including FIV+ cats) and dogs from the Granite City Animal Control in Madison County, Illinois. It's a very small animal control and strays keep coming in. There are no fees for a rescue to pull. If you can help us, please email the volunteers at poundpetsinc@gmail.com

Why adoption is a great option

Opie, a Jerseyville Other/Unknown other was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Other/Unknown for sale in Jerseyville, or seeking a Other/Unknown other from a breeder in Jerseyville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jerseyville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Jerseyville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Other/Unknown breeders who help with Other/Unknown rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jerseyville paves the way for another one to be saved.
