GRANITE CITY - GCS Credit Union employees joined together to raise $1,055 in the month of July to benefit the Granite City APA. The Granite City APA is a "no-kill" shelter, meaning that they do not put a time limit on how long an animal will be maintained at the shelter. The Granite City APA gives animals they accept or rescue every attempt at adoption possible.

The APA in Granite City began in March 1972 when ten hardworking volunteers decided that there was a need for a no-kill animal shelter in Southern Illinois. The shelter is air-conditioned and pavilions have been built outside to shelter the animals from the weather. The Granite City APA holds mobile adoptions every weekend so people can easily meet the animals. Volunteers are always needed to walk dogs or help with fundraising activities.
