Bond County Humane Society is one of the newest members of the Bond County Community Foundation!

Founded in 2014 to bring donors and local needs together, the Bond County Community Foundation was launched by The First National Bank based on the success of its Old Capitol Foundation in Fayette County. The foundation's mission is to promote and facilitate the "furtherance of charitable and educational opportunities" in Bond and adjacent counties. For more information on becoming a donor, please contact Pat Kious at The First National Bank at 618-664-0300 or Liz Heinzmann at The First National Bank's Trust Department at 618-283-5222. You may also visit the website at bondcountyfoundation.org.

It's easy and secure to make a tax-deductible donation to the Bond County Community Foundation specifying Bond County Humane Society as beneficiary. Choose to make an end-of-year gift, anytime gift, memorial, honorarium, or leave a legacy with planned giving.

Donate up to $100,000/year directly from a traditional or Roth IRA! Qualified charitable distributions (QCD) from IRAs have been permanently extended. Individuals can donate up to $100,000/year directly from a traditional or Roth IRA to qualifying charities. This may provide tax benefits whether or not you itemize your deductions. The QCD can satisfy all or a portion of your required minimum distribution. Be sure to review the full rules and requirements before acting. And be sure to obtain a letter of acknowledgment from the charity.

You can donate directly to Bond County Humane Society (see David Tabor at Edward Jones Greenville, 664-9080!) or donate to the new Bond County Community Foundation (see Pat Kious at FNB Greenville, 664-0300!) and designate your gift for BCHS. Thanks so much from the dogs and cats!!!!

Announcing a New Schedule for
Adoption Saturday Pet Meet & Greets!!

Saturdays Bond County Humane Society will be at Petco in Fairview Heights, Illinois on Hwy 159 (near intersection with Hwy 50). We've got our selection of pups and cats set up by 11am and begin to pack up around 3pm. Our adoption counselors can review & approve your application the same day, so come see us early! This new schedule means we are no longer holding adoptions at Petsmart.

 

Exceptional Cat Foster Oppurrtunity = Romeo
Exceptional Cat Foster Oppurrtunity!

Exceptional Cat Foster Oppurrtunity: We have accepted into our shelter a 1-2 year old, special needs cat, too frail to be a part of our regular adoption program and he requires placement in a permanent foster home or very special adoptive home. Romeo was found as a stray by a good citizen in early Spring 2014, and he is so very sociable and likes to be petted, but he has a medical condition caused by a trauma. It is called a diaphragmatic hernia. This condition causes Romeo to have labored breathing and he gets out of breath if he exerts himself too much. The vet has said that surgery is not an option because the injury has already healed. He eats only canned soft food. Romeo can probably live a full life and his condition doesn't cause him to have any other medical issues. He would very much like to be in a home where he can play floor games and be somebody's lap cat. By selflessly opening up your heart and home to Romeo, you are giving him a chance to enjoy a loving, attentive home setting instead of a busy shelter environment. You can even foster our cat living in an apartment or condo (with your landlord's approval), as Romeo's abilities to jump and run are very limited, so a small space can actually be beneficial. To meet Romeo and learn all about how to foster or even adopt him, call BCHS at 618 664 4068 or email BCHS at bchs4pets@sbcglobal.net or fill out a foster home application.
As a foster home, Bond County Humane Society will provide you with food, litter, vet care and medications. Anything you buy yourself is considered a tax-deductible donation. We ask that you treat Romeo as if he were your own and keep us updated on his status. If you ever have questions, never hesitate to contact BCHS. Contact BCHS to foster/adopt our loving and special Romeo now! Thank you! [updated October 31, 2014]

Shelter public hours are 1:00-5:00pm Mon & Tues, Thurs & Fri. (Sun, Wed by appointment ONLY). Contact BCHS today to join, volunteer, adopt, foster, donate!
