Dog Boarding in Decatur

When you think of Decatur, Illinois, it's unlikely that your mind goes straight towards a dog-friendly place to live, but this city is quickly growing to become just that. While it's no Chicago just yet, Decatur is steadily working its way to join the dog-friendly cities of America, and much of this has to do with the shelters and their activities in the area.

One of the biggest and most popular shelters is the Decatur and Macon County Animal Shelter. In just 2017, the shelters helped adopt out over 430 animals! They provide space for people to volunteer, take in homeless pups, foster them, and help them find forever homes! 

Another popular dog organization is a rescue called Homeward Bound. This program allows volunteers to foster animals in need while they look for forever homes or them. Yearly, they help over 400 animals find loving, responsible homes. 

The next time you are thinking of expanding your family, contact either of these shelters to meet your potential new pet!
