The mission of the Decatur & Macon County Animal Shelter Foundation is to support the well being of homeless animals in our community.
We raise funds to provide care and treatment to the animals held at the Animal Control & Care Center. We provide major funding to renovate and equip the Center. The Foundation also promotes the spay and neuter of companion animals.
- Shelter animals make great pets and we can help match you with a pet
- You can make a difference by donating, volunteering, or adopting
- Spay or neuter your pet
- Statistics and reasons to adopt, spay or neuter
ASPCA & Rachael Ray $100K Challenge
Saving More Lives Every Day
Once again, the Macon County Animal Control & Care Center and the Decatur & Macon County Animal Shelter Foundation have committed to saving the lives of more homeless pets than ever before. The Macon County Animal Control & Care Center is one of 50 contestants nationwide in the ASPCA & Rachael Ray $100k Challenge competing for a grand prize of $100,000, as well as a variety of lesser grants. In total, the Challenge will award more than $500,000 in prizes.
This national grant competition runs from June 1 through August 31, and is aimed at getting more animals adopted or returned to their owners than ever before. We need to save 400 pets during this time to qualify for the grant money. The Macon County Animal Control & Care Center is the only downstate shelter participating in the Challenge; the only other Illinois shelter in the competition is in the Chicago area. We are looking to all of Central Illinois for help in winning the Challenge.
We will have lots of adoption specials and $100K Challenge events all summer, including a $100K Kickoff Adoption Event. Come out and help us to support the well being of homeless animals in our community.
