Mounds shuts down Rock County Humane Society satellite adoption center
JANESVILLE—The Rock County Humane Society on Thursday dismantled its satellite adoption center at Mounds Pet Food Warehouse, 1725 Lodge Drive.
According to the humane society’s Jan. 17 website posting: “We were notified in a voicemail yesterday (Wednesday) from Mounds vice president that Mounds has made the business decision to shut down our satellite adoption center and requesting that we remove our adoptable cats by Friday (Jan. 18).
“All of the cats who had been at our satellite adoption center are now settled back into the adoptable cat area of the shelter.
“Now that the move is complete there are other logistical items to deal with. Along with their decision to close our satellite adoption center, Mounds has informed us that they will no longer provide the dry dog and cat food that we feed all of our animals at the shelter nor will we be able to purchase cat litter. This will mean a huge increase in costs for the shelter as it tries to replace its food and litter sources.”
More information will be released later.
