Lorraine Jackson, founder of no-eliminate shelter in Macoupin County, died

Carol Richards known as her buddy and mentor Lorraine Jackson, the founder and spark of Benld-Adopt-A-Pet, “an inspiration.”

“I experienced helped Animal Protecting League off and on, but some thing was missing,” claimed Richards, who lives in Springfield. “When I went to Benld, I identified out it was the heart that was lacking. Lorraine’s coronary heart was so big for these animals. She in no way gave up. We would have puppies that couldn’t stroll. She’d go out and get scooters for them or she would make them. They would handmake these factors and set the dogs in them and off they’d go. 

“She’d place them in bathtubs with drinking water so they could swim and get their legs developed up. Just seeing her, I would just sit back and smile and assume, I never know who’s the fortunate a single, me or the canines. She gave it every thing she had. She did it tirelessly.”
