The Animal Services Auxiliary Fund was established with the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois to benefit homeless adoptable pets at the county shelter, which includes but is not limited to providing medical assistance or spaying and neutering. In the last year, we’ve spent over $13,000 making adoptable pets more adoptable by fixing broken legs, injured eyes, and frost-bitten ears, diagnosing food allergies, pulling bad teeth, spaying or neutering adult animals -- and that’s just a partial list. You can help the auxiliary by sending your donation to: WCAS Auxiliary

Winnebago County Animal Services has a year round spay/neuter program to assist pet owners of Winnebago County with little or no income. Pet owners must have their pets vaccinated for rabies and purchase a county. Bring State issued photo ID, proof of vaccinations, proof low-income (W2 form, Link card, seniors on social security) and $20 cash to Winnebago County Animal Services during business hours to receive the spay/neuter voucher. The surgery is done at the veterinary clinic of your choice.
We love having volunteers. If you are interested, please visit. www.wcasrock.org and download our volunteer application and information sheet. Volunteer Orientation is held every month at 6pm. All new volunteers are required to attend. Additional training such as mentoring or dog handling skills are held in separate sessions.
