GCS Credit Union employees joined together to raise $1,055.00 in the month of July to benefit the Granite City APA. The Granite City APA is a "no-kill" shelter meaning that they do not put a time limit on how long an animal will be maintained at the shelter. The Granite City APA gives the animals they accept or rescue every attempt at adoption possible.
In an ongoing effort to support the local community, GCS employees participate in Jeans Days each month. In exchange for a donation of $15 or more, employees were allowed to wear jeans on Fridays and Saturdays during the month of July.

The shelter is air-conditioned and pavilions have been built outside to shelter the animals from the weather. The Granite City APA holds mobile adoptions every weekend so people can easily meet the animals. Volunteers are always needed to walk
