Our Facebook page is the method we use to document every animal that comes in, and we also post animals that are up for adoption. If you see an animal on Facebook for adoption, you may contact us and come in to meet that animal. Marion Animal Care & Control Facebook Page.
“Loaning Love” was created in 2013. When we were holding “Puppy Play Date” at IWU each year, college students would tell us that what they missed from home the most was their beloved pets. We have, on average, 30 – 40 dogs that are up for adoption at all times, and they would love to spend time outside the shelter. Hence, we created the “Loaning Love” program. All you have to do is come into the shelter, fill out an application, and choose from the dogs that are qualified to go. The dogs need to return to the shelter at 4:30pm after the day-long play date.
