DECATUR-A central Illinois animal shelter is in danger of closing if it can't meet its fundraising goal.
They're tens of thousand shy of reaching their 50 thousand dollar fundraising goal. They say each year now there's a risk of closing.
Homeward Bound Pet Shelter is a no-kill shelter that also provides job training. They offer jobs to clients at Macon Resources who can then take those skills and get jobs in the community.
The shelter has been on Huston drive since 2002--buf for the past few years they've been struggling to stay open because of rising costs.
Macon Resources Executive Director Dreux Lewandowski says the cost of caring for the dogs and cats is great and only climbing.
He says funds from Macon resources has been keeping the shelter afloat but that isn't sustainable in the long run.
Homeward Bound's support comes from private donations. So your donation is needed. If you give 70-dollars you can sponsor a homeless animal in appreciation you will receive a photo of your sponsored pet.
