On March 13, 2012 Chicago Police followed a trail of blood down the street leading
to a man’s house. The man, later arrested for cruel treatment, claimed he was
teaching his puppy to walk. Inside the house, where the trail of blood ended, the
police found a sweet six-month old female bleeding and terrified. The puppy, later
named Storm, and her brother Havoc, were given a second chance and brought to
Storm suffered extensive injuries from being dragged down the sidewalk, and due
to her weak immune system contracted parvo, a deadly virus. Storm and Havoc now
needed a third chance.
Friends of CACC stepped in and rescued both Storm and her brother, bringing
them to health and safety with the help of an amazing foster family. Storm is now
completely healthy and along with Havoc, has been adopted!
With the help of foster volunteers and life-saving donations, Friends rescues
hundreds of animals in need. Consider becoming a foster volunteer or making
a donation to continue our work on behalf of Chicago’s neediest animals. Email
