The City of Chicago takes in thousands of unwanted animals every year from citizens, brings stray animals in off the streets, and provides care for evidence animals in court cases. Contrary to perception, most of these animals are wonderful, loving companion animals--they simply have nowhere to go.
And that's why Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control was founded. We're here to provide help for as many of those unfortunate animals as we possibly can.
We do that by
And YOU can help!
Providing foster care in your own home for animals transferred to us from ACC is our most critical need --and possibly the most rewarding for any person passionate about animals.
At the shelter volunteers are needed to walk dogs and help the adopting public get to know these wonderful animals.
At adoption events like the Chicago Wolves games, for one example, volunteers are needed to chaperone each dog attending.
At social, educational, and fundraising events we need you for everything from graphic design to taking tickets, from recruiting sponsors to post-event clean up.
Your donations support our efforts to foster the City's neediest animals. The lives we've saved demonstrate even better than our current financial statement how your donations have been used this year.
