Local animal shelter's plea for chair donations goes viral

Posted: Updated:

A Galesburg animal shelter's plea for used easy chairs for their pets to relax in is going viral on social media. 

The Knox County Humane Society's No-Kill Shelter made a post last week asking for anyone with older chairs to donate them for the shelter pets. The shelter's Facebook video received over 130,000 likes and 630,000 shares as of Tuesday afternoon, and was featured by Today and Good Morning America. 

"At this time we are only taking smaller upholstered chairs due to some chairs being too large to fit in some of the kennels. We cannot accept large reclining chairs, couches or love seats at this time. If you had a large chair planned for donation, please think of a monetary donation instead or donating an item from our Amazon wishlist," said the shelter in a Facebook post. 

The shelter is located at 1855 Windish Dr. in Galesburg. The shelter can also be reached at (309) 342-1275.
