Friends Forever Humane Society — along with the City of Freeport Animal Control and Stephenson County Animal Control, headed by Stephenson County Veterinarian Dr. William Condie of the Freeport Animal Hospital – is involved in the rescue of 85 dogs from a hoarding situation in a rural area outside Freeport.
Most of the animals have great dispositions and are in reasonably good health, and we look forward to helping them find their forever homes or if some are strays, reuniting them with their families; it’s our mission to find homes for animals who find themselves without one.
Individuals wishing to support this rescue are encouraged to bring supplies to Friends Forever at 966 W. Rudy Road in Freeport or the Freeport Animal Hospital at 321 East South Street in Freeport.
An announcement will be made when the animals are available for adoption, which may be a number of weeks from now. Until then, the public may not visit with or handle any of the animals. A first priority will be to reunite any lost pets with their owners. All of the dogs are being photographed and will be viewable online as soon as possible.
There have been many generous contributions of money and supplies – THANK YOU! The following are still needed:
1. Gift cards for Menards, Farm and Fleet, Wal-Mart, Home Depot
2. Monetary donations
3. Large Kong dog chew toys
No more supplies are needed for the moment, but if individuals have already purchased any items from previous lists they will of course be gratefully accepted. The outpouring of community support has been amazing and items that are needed now are only required in small quantities and change frequently based on the situations being dealt with at the time. Therefore, gift cards and monetary donations are the most useful at this point in the rescue effort.
Individuals wishing to support this rescue may bring contributions to Friends Forever at 966 W. Rudy Road in Freeport or the Freeport Animal Hospital at 321 East South Street in Freeport. Monetary donations can be made online here or by check or cash.
All contributions will support the work of those partnering together on behalf of the animals in this rescue effort. Friends Forever reserves the right to use any donation where the need is greatest.
We’ve been doing this since 1953, and through the generosity of many individuals over the years, we have placed literally thousands of cats and dogs with loving families. While this hoarding situation has brought the plight of 85 dogs to the public’s attention and we are immensely grateful for the support we’re receiving for them, we rescue animals every day, year after year, and we are always in need of contributions to continue that work. We can make that easy for you! Become our Best Friend Forever (BFF) and a monthly donation charged automatically to a credit card will help us care for cats and dogs 365 days a year.
