EDWARDSVILLEMetro East Humane Society is pleased to have received a Rachael Ray Save Them All grant from Best Friends Animal Society for its Madison County Animal Care & Control & MEHS Unicorn Foster Program to help save the lives of more adoptable pets living in Madison County.

“This grant allows us to include the Madison County Animal Care & Control & MEHS Unicorn Foster Program in our work finding more homes for the pets in our care,” said Anne Schmidt, Director of Metro East Humane Society. “Our goal will be to adopt out 62 dogs pulled from our local animal control to loving families. We appreciate the support of Best Friends Animal Society in making this program possible.”

Metro East Humane Society is an active partner in Best Friends Network which offers help and support to shelters, rescue groups, and other animal welfare organizations working to save lives in their communities.

“When you choose to adopt your next pet you are becoming part of the solution right here in our community,” said Schmidt.
