Peoria Humane Society continued to show their support to Washington residents as they came in for resources after the tornado. Therapy dog, Blitz, relaxes with her new teddy bear in between visits with people at the Red Cross Multi-Agency Resource Center in Washington. Children and dogs received bears from organizations interested in spreading cheer to those effected by the recent storm.
To leave the world a better place - whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or an improved social condition - that is to have succeeded. That only one life breathed easier because you lived - that is success.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Peoria Humane Society incorporated more than 70 years ago to help the animals in Peoria. After years of struggling to conduct cruelty investigations and house homeless animals with little funding, the Board of Directors collaborated with the City of Peoria in 1980 to professionalize the animal control program and improve the welfare of animals in Peoria.
The PHS partners with Peoria County and the City of Peoria to offer comprehensive animal welfare and animal control services to all of Peoria county. Freed from the responsibility of funding a shelter, the PHS can devote its time, effort, and funds to increasing the adoption of shelter animals and creating a humane community. And, since the Peoria County Animal Protection Services remains the only shelter in Peoria County, citizens need only visit one place to find a lost pet or adopt a new pet. No duplication of services exists, nor do the organizations clash.
