|HAPPY MARCH EVERYONE
No, you haven't landed on the wrong website! We are
paying homage to "man's best friend" this month because
Granite City is one dog lovin' town!
Our local Granite City APA and Pound Pets, Inc.
are two of the finest organizations in Granite City. Their
staff of volunteers display a level of commitment and
compassion that is unsurpassed. From rescuing strays, to
arranging for life saving veterinarian care, from fostering
animals to finding them their forever homes through
adoptions, these wonderful animal lovers never rest
as long as there is an animal in need.
Thank you, each and everyone, for all that you do.
When scrolling through this month's home page, take
a moment to visit their websites. You just might find a
brand new furry friend!
