Groups involved in the event include Animal Rescue of Southern Illinois, Critter Gal Rescue, Marion Regional Humane Society and Second Nature Wildlife Rehabilitation. They say they are each committed to helping misplaced animals in finding their forever homes.
"These organizations are working for animal welfare," said Venegas. "Be it an orphaned wild animal or a dog abandoned at a pound, each one of these organizations strives to provide proper vetting, nutrition and care until the domestic animal is adopted to a qualified home or a wild animal released into its natural habitat."
