Building Campaign

It’s official! The capital campaign to build a new McDonough County Animal Shelter has kicked off with a challenge from a family who is honoring their beloved rescue pets. Please see the poster and donation form in this post for more information.
We look forward to working with our friends and community, both those living inside the county and out, to build a better shelter! We will update here and on our Facebook page.

Thank you!

September 10th, 2022 was devoted to the Building Campaign with $942 raised at our table at the Gazebo Art Festiuval in Chandler Park, and $4310 raised during Play It Forward at The Wine Sellers that evening.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our table in Chandler Park, to our local musicians for donating all of their tips to the Shelter Building Campaign, and to The Wine Sellers for hosting the event. It was great to see you there!

The following are the slides from the slideshow that ran as part of our Building Campaign promotion at the Wine Sellers:


Announcing the The Suzie Q, Jesse, and Maggie May Tribute Challenge!

To honor their dogs’ lives, as well as to demonstrate their support for the construction of a new animal shelter, Donna and Bob Quesal are challenging the McDonough County community (and others) to match their $10,000 pet tribute contribution.

They will donate $10,000 to the HSMC New Shelter Building Fund if donations are raised to match or exceed that amount.  Let’s pool our resources and build a better shelter!
