La Salle steps up financial support of animal shelter

Posted by wlpo on October 11, 2016

Chances are if you find a stray cat or your dog runs away, one of the first calls you make in the Illinois Valley is to Illinois Valley Animal Rescue.

Seeing that they provide a big service, the La Salle City Council is stepping up and agreeing to donate $3,000 annually to the shelter in La Salle. Mayor Jeff Grove says that’s a jump from the $500 donation they gave IVAR this past year.

Last month IVAR representatives approached the city about funding since they are handling more dogs and cats in La Salle than anywhere else. Even with that in mind Grove says he hopes other towns using IVAR’s help also step up in funding the shelter.
