Help continue progressive reforms at Animal Care and Control.

In 2018, the Madison County Board unanimously passed a resolution to save 90 percent of the dogs and cats coming into Madison County Animal Care and Control. But to date, the board has failed to pass an updated animal care ordinance or a pilot program to achieve this goal. In 2018 so far, more than 200 cats and kittens and 100 dogs have been killed at Madison County Animal Care and Control.

Politics is not a spectator sport. The dogs and cats of our county need your voice. Please send an email to county board members, letting them know that you care about the stray and homeless dogs and cats at Madison County Animal Care and Control. Tell them they must provide oversight to the animal shelter and pass a new updated progressive humane ordinance and a pilot program to humanely reduce the community cat population.

Dear [Decision Maker],

This year, more than 200 cats and kittens and 100 dogs have been killed at Madison County Animal Care and Control. The vast majority of the cats killed come from cities with outdated restrictive cat ordinances (such as leash laws) that don't exist in the county. State law does not even require Madison County Animal Care and Control to accept cats, other than bite cases, and many Illinois counties do not accept cats from cities.



Thank you for your consideration and happy holidays. We all want a safe and humane Madison County.

Sincerely,
