To the editor:
Animal Rescue (LCAR) is an all-volunteer group that works together
to save the lives of the animals of Logan County.
We transport dogs and cats to No-kill shelters around Illinois. When
a No-kill shelter commits to saving the life of a Logan County
animal, our group pays the medical expenses which can be costly. One
medical test typically runs around $20 per animal. Cats require a
Combo test (FIV/AIDS) and dogs require a DHPP (Distemper) and a
Heartworm test before they are allowed on a transport. This is to
ensure the health and safety of all animals on the transport.
In order for LCAR to save and transport more animals, we need your
help. Any monetary donation is greatly appreciated. We are a 501C3
and all donations are tax deductible. You can send a donation
through the mail to LCAR at 750 Prairie St., Lincoln, Il. 62656 or
you may visit our website
http://www.logancounty animalrescue.com/ and donate
through our PayPal button.
Thank you in advance for your kindness and support.
