Give these animals a home for the holidays



Holidays aren't just a hard time for people in need; they're also a hard time for animals in need. In the spirit of the season, animal shelters are urging potential Forever Home-owners to consider a new pet.

The APL is offering a special deal on black cats. Sadly, black is the least desirable color for pet cats, and these poor little guys have fallen to the wayside in favor of their more colorful counterparts. Call 544-PETS to meet them face to face and see that they'd make a wonderful addition to your home, regardless of the color of their fur.


Sangamon County Animal Control is offering a special selection of cats for just $30.00. These cats have been in their care for too long and are running out of time.

Not a cat person? Well, listen up, dog-friendly homes. The Dairyland Greyhound Park of Wisconsin is closing, bringing an end to dog racing in the state. That's the good news. The bad news is that the Greyhounds currently living in the park will soon be homeless. If you've ever considered rescuing a retired racing dog, please go to Greyhound Pets of America and see how you can help.
