The canine residents at the Knox County Humane Society recently received a special gift from their compassionate caretakers – comfy, cozy, oversized chairs! That may not seem like much, but for shelter animals, anything that can make them feel closer to having a forever home means the world. You can clearly see how much the dogs are enjoying their new furnishings! This was truly a beautiful display of love and compassion that certainly didn’t go unnoticed, especially by the animals.

Shelter workers and volunteers surely deserve a lot more credit than they get. Day after day these compassionate people have to make heartbreaking decisions and see incomprehensible cruelty and neglect cases that most of us couldn’t possibly handle. You can help make their job easier by reminding others that adopting a pet is a serious, life-long commitment. The staff at KCHS would love more chairs so be sure to keep them in mind the next time you are moving or redecorating. However, donating supplies or toys, no matter how small, are also a wonderful way to support your local shelters.

Knox County Humane Society is a no-kill shelter located in Galesburg, IL. To donate to Knox County Humane click here or to learn more click here.

Such a simple gesture but one that means so much.I know my dogs like to sleep on chairs and it brings a bit of home even if they are in shelters. I love this idea. Now that is a shelter. Some places call themselves that but are horrid and cruel and/or they kill dogs as if they are disposable objects. Thanks Knox County.

Those dogs are precious and deserve so much kindness. I hope they are all happy and healthy and find very safe and loving homes. Those that donated the chairs and other things are so kind as well. You all at the shelter are also such caring people and all I can write is Karma. Your kindness will be returned. I will certainly make a donation.
