Adoptable Pets in Illinois
Iroquois County Animal Rescue was initially created in 2008 in response to the many domestic animals who were left displaced by the floods of January and February 2008 in Watseka, IL. Well, since then, our phone has continued to ring off the hook! We have since expanded our scope to include all of Iroquois County and are proud to provide its wonderful residents with this much needed service.

We exist to serve YOU- and to respond to every cry for help from a caring citizen that concerns an animal in need- and WE cannot exist without your support. ICARe is a TRUE charity, with 100% of its income going right back to the animals we care for. As a 501(c) 3 non-profit, every dollar that you donate to us is tax deductible to you.


OUR MISSION:

The missions of ICARe are threefold: (a) to alleviate the suffering of domestic animals in Iroquois County by providing for their immediate needs such as, but not limited to, food, shelter, and medical treatment; (b) to provide for the long-term care of these animals by seeking to place them in foster and/or adoptive homes; and (c) to control animal over-population in Iroquois County and surrounding counties by providing pet owners and animal caretakers with low-cost, affordable spay/neuter services.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

Seen a medium sized male dog, long hair, golden/blonde color, black nose, half floppy ears.. Ran across Rt. 24 into Gilman IL Subway parking lot yesterday, approx 11:30am 1/24/16 .. ran around the lot for a while.. (tried to rescue with no success..phoned police and no one showed up for 20 minutes and no call back) anyways.. the dog had no collar, and no interest of human contact.. didn't even want to hop in the car.. I managed to get him in finger tips reach but he wouldn't come any closer and I had no way to grab him, and didn't want to chance getting bit.. Think we saved him run running out to I57.. but he ended up leaving the Subway parking lot and crossed back over Rt. 24 and went down E. 600 towards the farm equipment. His fur was dirty, but overall he looked pretty healthy. but he really looked lost to me and like he had no idea where he was. Would like someone to see if this dog is hanging around still, and if he could get rescued. I live about 50 miles from there..
