GRAYSLAKE – Save-A-Pet is closed to the public during the shelter-in-place period ordered by Gov. JB Pritzker.

Save-A-Pet sent this message to readers:

“The community’s response has simply been amazing as we were gearing up for the shelter-in-place directive. Many adopted a cat or a dog on Saturday; others have taken in one of our residents as a temporary foster while others have donated money to help us during these hard times. While we are currently closed to the public until further notice, our staff is still taking care of our residents.”

“Earlier today, it has sunk in how kind and generous people can be. Over the last few days, the local community, shelter volunteers and staff have either fostered or adopted many of our furry friends. This has not only been amazing for them to finally have a home, but also gives staff members a helping hand in being able to keep our remaining buddies in a healthy and loving environment through this potentially trying time. Thank you to everyone who has opened up their homes to a furry friend, as well as those who have taken home a permanent member of your family! And thank you to all staff members who do the work behind the scenes at all costs,” one staff member wrote on March 22.

Thank you for adopting, thank you for fostering, thank you for your financial support.
