My story

Hi there, I'm Emma and I am 2 1/2 years old. I am a petite, tuxedo girl, here at the shelter after a long ride on transport. I came from a high kill shelter where my baby and I did not have many options... When you first meet me, I can be a little timid. After some pets, snuggles, and sweet talk, I visibly relax and and enjoy the warmth, companionship, and love of my human friends. I like catnip and am interested in toys...just learning what to do with them. I am a soft, sweet, and gentle little one who needs a reassurance. If you think that I could be the right fit for your forever family, please fill out an application so we can meet and get to know each other.

More about this shelter

TAPS-Tazewell Animal Protective Society was founded in 1958 in Pekin Illinois in a building donated by the City of Pekin on River Road. In 1979, rapidly rising river water forced the evacuation of the animals. Once again, the City of Pekin stepped in and donated a building for the animals. Several moves later, and with the help and generosity of many volunteers and community members, TAPS now has a new home at 100 TAPS Lane. Last year we celebrated 50 year of caring for the homeless animals of Central Illinois.
