HAPPY MAY EVERYONE!
Just as we predicted last month...warm and sunny days
have arrived.  Granite City students are counting down the
days to when their summer vacation begins!  This month
we are featuring the beautiful photography of Jack Rainey,
local artist.  Jack always portrays Granite City in the most
beautiful and wonderful ways.  His local shots, like the one
of the Mockingbird in Wilson Park, at the top of this page,
are magnificent.  You will find a few pictures of places not
in Granite City, but very familiar to most of us.

Welcome Spring 2019!!
We are doing a Spring Cleaning
Fundraising Supply Drive. When you
are out buying much needed products
for your home, please take a moment
and purchase that one extra item to
help our Residents get ready for Spring.
They want to be ready when the right
family comes along, so they need the
basics to help them acclimate to how it
would be in a forever home. We would
appreciate any items that we are in need
of - you can donate anything you like.
We want our AWESOME companion animals to have the things that all of us take for
granted:
TOYS FOR ALL SIZES - UP TO EXTRA LARGE- TOYS FOR BIGGER DOGS NEED TO BE MORE
DURABLE - KONG IS A GREAT PRODUCT, SOFT/HARD TREATS, LONG LASTING TREATS FOR OUTSIDE.
BISCUITS!!  PINESOL, CLOROX TYPE WIPES, KITTY LITTER, PAPER TOWELS
We started with the goodies because we believe you should eat dessert first!! These great
dogs and cats deserve a bit of pampering as they wait for their permanent homes.
The GCAPA is open Thursday through Monday from 10 am til 3 pm.
If you can purchase and drop off ->>AWESOME! If you don't have time, please donate to one
of our doghouses around town. If you are crazy busy, please send a check or go to
www.gcapa.org and donate via PayPal. Any and all donations come together to make
something really special happen - thank you for your consideration and please share on your
pages. WOOF!!
