Wish Bone Canine Rescue is a local not for profit dog shelter located in Bloomington, Illinois. We have been helping dogs find their forever homes since 2009- over 5,000 in fact! We also provide vaccinations, food, and altering of animals in our community, as resources allow, to help owned pets of low income individuals stay with their current owners.
Our operations , which are still continuing through this global pandemic, have been altered significantly. We have had to discontinue our community programs until further notice. Our food supply has been sporadic, as most suppliers only allow us to buy a limited quantity of items at this time. Our volunteers, while eager to help and we love you all for it, we have had to limit how many we allow in the building at once to protect our extremely essential animal caretakers from contamination. We are starting to drain our supply of Lysol disenfectant, wipes, and gloves.
Visiting hours have been cancelled until further notice. Also, our weekly adoption events that help so many dogs find a home are no longer taking place.
On the bright side, our dogs are still being cared for by dedicated staff members day in and day out. Adoptions are still taking place outside, with CDC recommendations being followed. People are stepping up to adopt and foster like never before. We appreciate the support from our community and we are grateful to be able to continue to provide for our dogs during this time of uncertainty.
GoFundMe is matching donations up to $1,000 for charitable organizations affected by COVID-19. Donate through this campaign to help us provide food, medicine, and cleaning products to help keep staff and animals safe.
