Allegan County must find homes for dozens of animals as soon possible.

The Allegan County Animal Shelter has found themselves in a really tough position as state mandated repairs is forcing the shelter closed according to,

The shelter, operated by Wishbone Pet Rescue Alliance, must remove all of the animals from its facility by Sunday, Jan. 19, 2019. Required repairs include a new floor, ventilation system and the addition of a sink in the facility’s operation room. The renovations are expected to take four to six weeks.

So far the shelter has found space for about half of the dogs and cats at local kennels.  They currently have less than half of the money needed to board the animals during these repairs.  Not to mention, as of Monday they still had 19 dogs and 75 cats that need a place to go for the next 4-6 weeks.
