For your outdoor pets, ensure your pet's house has wind flaps. Use soft and warm bedding, like straw. Ensure your pet's water dish is full of fresh, clean water at all times.
➜ Watch that food! Many dog owners make the mistake of overfeeding their indoor dogs. Dogs that spend most of their time indoors are often less active and therefore require fewer calories to avoid gaining weight.

Make this New Year a Time for Adoption!
Adopt a pet to occupy your free time and to give each other some valuable company. Nothing warms a house better than the unconditional mutual friendship that a pet can bring to a home. And, consider adopting a pair of pets, as your new furry friend may want someone to play with and to develop social skills with. The summer season is fast approaching, which unfortunately usually means increased animal influx and owner relinquishes at the pound. Adoption is really needed this time of year -- please help!
Although many bright and colorful animals may be available for adoption, please consider adopting an all black pet. Plenty of black cats and kittens are available that are just as lovable as a calico, striped, or tortoiseshell cat or kitten.
➜ Research has shown that black coats have evolved separately many times in different species, indicating dark fur as a survival benefit, meaning black felines are more resistant to diseases than cats of other colors.

Logan County Animal Rescue (LCAR) has been organized and is operating as a charitable rescue and adoption organization to promote the placement of adoptable animals in suitable homes. Animals accepted into the care of this organization shall originate, except in rare circumstances, from open-admission shelters or municipal animal control facilities. Consideration for acceptance of any animal shall not be limited by geographic location. Furthermore, an emphasis shall be placed upon the acceptance of adoptable animals currently residing in rural locales or other locales in which euthanasia rates are especially high. To promote this goal, LCAR will:
Promote and engage in shelter transfer programs as a viable means of reducing the national euthanasia rate,
Provide food, shelter, and veterinary attention for any and all animals accepted into the care of this organization,
Promote responsible population control through support of spay/neuter programs,
Promote and provide educational programs for the public through the media, schools, and other organizations,
Any other actions which will facilitate the purpose of this organization, and
Raise, receive, and disburse funds for the carrying out of the business of this organization. This includes the acquisition of property, goods, grants, gifts, and bequeaths.
Logan County Animal Rescue (LCAR) partners with no-kill animal shelters throughout the state in finding appropriate homes for dogs and cats. LCAR works most closely with Logan County Animal Control. Although similar in name to Logan County Animal Rescue, Logan County Animal Control is the county's "dog pound", and Animal Control is a kill shelter (euthanasia) and is funded and operated solely by the county. LCAR is an animal rescue service that is completely separate from the municipal dog pound. LCAR is funded entirely by donations and staffed by dedicated volunteers. Logan County Animal Rescue (LCAR) is proud to have transferred hundreds of animals out of Animal Control:
In 2017, LCAR rescued 292 animals out of Animal Control.
In 2016, LCAR rescued 295 animals out of Animal Control.
In 2015, LCAR rescued 201 animals out of Animal Control.
In 2014, LCAR rescued 119 animals out of Animal Control.
In 2013, LCAR rescued 144 animals out of Animal Control.
In 2012, LCAR rescued 155 animals out of Animal Control.
In 2011, LCAR rescued 147 animals out of Animal Control.
In 2010, LCAR rescued 231 animals out of Animal Control.
In 2009, LCAR rescued 239 animals out of Animal Control.
Regarding the numbers listed above, had Logan County Animal Rescue (LCAR) not rescued these animals, they could have been euthanized -- and these are not numbers, these are lives.
With the help of many generous donations, Logan County Animal Rescue (LCAR) is very satisfied with the number of animals that we at LCAR were able to transport -- animals that would have probably been euthanized. However, we would still prefer everyone who has an animal to be a responsible pet owner and spay/neuter/fix their pet.
Thank you for caring for those who cannot care for themselves!
Let LCAR Help You and Your Pet!
If you can no longer care for your pet, let Logan County Animal Rescue (LCAR) help you out. Logan County Animal Rescue cannot guarantee placement, but if you find yourself having to give up your furry friend, we will help look for a suitable new home while you hold onto your pet. This keeps animals out of the pound a little longer, and if and when a visit to the pound is necessary, we will already have the information we need to get your pet into a rescue. This has been very successful, and the more we know, the better the chance of finding a loving home.
