    WE HAVE SEVERAL FIV POSITIVE CATS FEATURED THIS MONTH - HERE ARE A FEW BASIC FACTS ABOUT THE FIV VIRUS:
    * The Feline Immuno-deficiency Virus is a slow virus that affects a cat's immune system over a period of years.

    * FIV is a cat-only disease and cannot be spread to humans or other non-felines.


    * FIV cats most often live long, healthy, and relatively normal lives with no symptoms at all. 


         
    As a true no kill facility we recieve no state or federal funding of any kind.  We operate on donations, money from our fundraising events and from owner surrender fees.  To let you, our benefactors decide how your money is spent at the shelter we have provided several target donation buttons on every page of this site.  The general "donate" button located on the left banner denotes funds to be spent on food, utilities, and general day-to-day expenses to keep our shelter running.  The "building fund" is for mortgage, insurance, upkeep and improvements and a much needed new heating and cooling system.  Of course the "feline" and "canine" vet bill buttons let you target your donation to the species you are most partial to.  A lot of our donator's target these funds to memorialize one of their late pets or loved ones.  If you would like to donate, but do not wish to do so online, please mail your check to: 
    Highland Animal Shelter
    PO Box 307
    Highland, IL 62249
    All donations are greatly appreciated and go 100% toward supporting the high standard of living that we provide for each and every animal in our care

    BLESSING.JPG
    Pastor Chris, from the Highland Evangelical United Church of Christ, visits Highland Animal Shelter to provide a blessing of our animals.  He was kind enough to spend extra time praying for our senior & special needs residents, to find loving, forever homes.  The staff & volunteers would like to thank Pastor Chris for the inspiration & comfort that he has brought us, on behalf of our wonderful animals.
