La Salle animal shelter dealing with influx of pit bulls

Posted by wlpo on September 12, 2016

Do you know anyone looking to bring a dog into their life? If you do, would they be interested in a pit bull?

The folks at Illinois Valley Animal Rescue put out a message over the weekend that they have 44 dogs at the shelter in La Salle and 31 of them are either pit bulls or pit bull mixes. Shelter officials say “no one wants them” and that its draining finances and putting strain on volunteers and staff.

IVAR hosts dog adoption hours Wednesdays from 5 until 7 and Sundays from noon until 2.
