Abandoned Animal Pickup

Wednesday is the day you should pick up your runaway pet, or Winnebago County Animal Services will be putting it up for adoption. Animal services has had more than 130 fleeing pets so far this summer. That includes more than 50 dogs and 60 cats over the 4th of July weekend alone. Although a great deal of the animals have been picked up, a few stragglers remain. Due to the surplus of runaway animals this summer, the shelter is hosting a Christmas in July special. They are offering 10 dollars off towards adopting any cat or dog over a year old.
