This summer's state wide reading program theme was "Paws to Read". Several local libraries hosted a variety of fundraisers to help the homless animals at the Peoria County Animal Protection Services.
Fondulac Library decided to reach out to the community and during the months of June and July held a supply drive for the three shelters in the area: PAWS, TAPS and Tazewell Animal Control.

We all know that our pets are superstars. Now is the time to publish them all for the world to see! Join the Peoria Humane Society in our 5th annual calendar photo contest! Not only will your pet have a place in the limelight, but your entry fee will help abandoned and abused animals that are waiting for their own time to shine.
To leave the world a better place - whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or an improved social condition - that is to have succeeded. That only one life breathed easier because you lived - that is success.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Peoria Humane Society incorporated more than 70 years ago to help the animals in Peoria. After years of struggling to conduct cruelty investigations and house homeless animals with little funding, the Board of Directors collaborated with the City of Peoria in 1980 to professionalize the animal control program and improve the welfare of animals in Peoria.
The PHS partners with Peoria County and the City of Peoria to offer comprehensive animal welfare and animal control services to all of Peoria county. Freed from the responsibility of funding a shelter, the PHS can devote its time, effort, and funds to increasing the adoption of shelter animals and creating a humane community. And, since the Peoria County Animal Protection Services remains the only shelter in Peoria County, citizens need only visit one place to find a lost pet or adopt a new pet. No duplication of services exists, nor do the organizations clash.
