    Pound Pets, Inc
    Yesterday at 6:57am
    Press Release!!!!!!
    Pound Pets Inc. is excited to announce that we have reached an agreement with Mayor Hagnauer and the City of Granite City concerning the Animal Control building. Beginning 1/15/16 Pound Pets Inc. will be assuming control of the everyday operations and policies of the building. The State of Illinois regulations will not change as they pertain to stray animals, nor will the procedure of calling Granite City Animal Control for animal related issues 618-452-6322. Pound Pets Inc. is not assuming the responsibilities of the Animal Control Officers; only of the animals once they reach the building. The building is still an Animal Control facility, not a shelter. We will continue to seek rescue when stray hold is up and seek fosters or adopters for the animals when needed. There will however be a significant change to the hours and availability of staff in the building. This will be a major transition for all involved, but we are determined to make this a successful change.
    Thank you for your continued support.
