very important...need chicago area peeps help!

Forward this on to anyone you know that is looking for a dog… The shelter is closing and all unadopted dogs will be euthanized!

Shelter Closing in June: All Dogs Will Be Euthanized - Please ADOPT and Pass This On
Hello everyone!

My name is Christie and I volunteer with Animal Education and Rescue in Libertyville . We have a working relationship with a shelter in Marion IN and the shelter manager there is a wonderful soul. They unfortunatley are closing at the end of June (roughly) and any animal there on that day will be euthanized. 2 other volunteers and myself went down to take pictures and bios of their dogs.

Please click on the link and look at these sweet dogs! There are many different breeds, each dog needing a home, otherwise they will get euthanized the day the shelter doors close. There are no and's, if's, or's, but's or maybe's...it is going to happen!

Wouldn't it be amazing if those doors closed and there was not one single soul left behind to die? We are their only hope in finding homes and not living out the rest of their days on death row. This is no small feat, don't get me wrong, and yet it is not an impossibility. Heck, you just might know someone at work who has been looking for a dog...well, here you have it!

We told them we would try to help place as many as we could in rescue groups. We are reaching out to all of the area rescues asking if anyone can help. I chose to reach out to the bully breed rescues as I own a pit mix and am fostering a pit bull and I LOVE them both dearly. I have included a link to the pictures that Cindy Falstad took that day. If you can help please let me know by e-mail or phone 847-371-1147 or 847-404-8143.
Transport will be provided.

Thanks in advance,

Christie
