Although the weather did not cooperate as well as we would have liked for Bark in the Park this year, it was still a successful event for the Peoria Humane Society. PHS would like to thank all of our sponsors for supporting this years Bark in the Park. Thank you, too, to all the volunteers that turned out not only to help set up the event, but to run some of the booths and activities as well.

November 2-8, 2014 is national Animal Shelter Appreciation Week. Here at the Peoria Humane Society we like to celebrate by taking time out to give thanks to those that work first hand with the helpless animals in our community. Every year we hold a luncheon for all the animal shelter staff in honor of the hard work that they put in throughout the year. Their job is not easy and is often pretty thankless. This year's luncheon featured a delicious buffet catered by Bernardi's. The chocolate truffles were an especially big hit!

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.
