Rescue groups wishing to rescue animals both in state and out of state, must be licensed by the Department of Agriculture as a rescue/ shelter and their application to rescue must be approved by Union County Animal Control. Each rescue group must submit a copy of its shelter license and a list of approved person to pick up/pull animals from the Union County Animal Control.

VALENTINES.... In memory of our beloved Valentines that met a horrible fate that left with pledge monies they never received. Rather than "pledges" being made to cover vetting costs we will be calling them "Valentines". We will post the cost of vetting and ask for Valentines to help cover the cost. Their Valentines will send those funds to UCAC to reimburse the cost they spent on the vetting so this can continue to help the dogs and cats and take some cost off of receiving rescues.

When we post "WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE?" Their will be a cost for their vetting. This will be where you can pledge. Checks will need to be mailed to...
Union County Animal Control
385 Kaolin Rd
Cobden, IL
In the note area of check please put for which dog or cat you are helping towards...example, "Val-Fluffy"

Or PayPal
Please mark as "Gift" and note "Valentine"

If your not comfortable posting publicly the amount sending, please PM us the amount so we know right away how much we need to continue to raise or if goal has been met. We will keep cost updated as they are vetted. Thank you!

Union County Animal Control is a rural county with little funding and is trying to get help to make the situation better. They have less than basics they desperately need volunteers. There is no set date on how long animals live. They have 7 indoor runs and 4 outdoor runs for dogs and limited space for cats... It is very tiny and when full, animals may have to be PTS. Owner Surrenders are available Right away and Found as strays have a 10 day hold period.

To everyone trying to help get these guys to rescues Huge Thank You's for networking so much! These pets are all URGENT Time needs to be spent on securing futures not momentary "wishes & why's". So, please unless you want to help or know of a rescue that wants to step up & help then you will get a personal message back. Otherwise, thank you, keep sharing and know someone is reading your comments and you are appreciated!

UCAC is a Rescue and Adoption friendly county and is working very hard at providing the best care and chances for their animals.

Thank You For Supporting UCAC ?
