Adopters not returning animals to Heartland animal shelter

Adoptions up at animal shelter

MURPHYSBORO, Ill. (KFVS) - St. Francis CARE in Murphysboro, has had a lot of adopters come in, President Diane Daugherty said over 350 animals have been adopted since quarantining in Illinois began.

Daugherty said in-depth screenings happens with potential adopters to make sure none of the animals return to their care.

”We’ve had very few returned and after adoptions, we’ve been doing very, what I think, a very good job of screening people. ‘Cause, we always say, its an adoption for life, not an adoption for quarantine.” says Daugherty
