Hildy's funny underbite won this little Wolves fan's heart! They both had a great night out at the last "Adopt-A-Dog Night" of the Chicago Wolves hockey season. Twelve great dogs found their forever families at the event--Browny, Coyote, Diamond, Geronimo, Gina, Indie, Junior, Kayla, Lucky, Montana, Sweet Pea, and Wrigley. For a look at the wonderful dogs available for adoption at the game, check out the additional photos we took. And be sure to join the crowd at the Allstate Arena this coming season! Thanks, again, Chicago Wolves!
Approximately 11,000 Girl Scouts turned out for the Chicago Wolves' Adopt-A-Dog Night at the Allstate Arena on January 6. The 30 ft. "Animobile" van brought 13 pups to the game that night and 9 of them went home to their forever families. One experienced volunteer handles each dog brought to the game. Those of us on the other end of their leashes never see any hockey these nights, but every time an adoption is approved, our hearts are cheering like crazy. The Wolves have been responsible for over 1,000 dogs from Chicago Animal Care and Control finding their forever homes and have a good start on the second thousand. The dogs will be at the games again on February 16, March 30, and April 20. Check out www.chicagowolves.com for tickets and you just might leave a game with the dog of your dreams.
Hundreds of animal-loving Chicagoans made their way up the grand staircase to Preston Bradley Hall in the Cultural Center for the 8th annual "Big Night" charity extravaganza on Wednesday night, September 19. The event was emceed by Jim and Lakesha Rose, catered by a dozen of Chicago's finest chefs, and featured a mini concert by Jesse Campbell, star of The Voice. This year, nearly 50 original artworks were offered to bid on and so was a live auction of a dinner cooked in your home for 8 people by the famous Jackie Shen. (Chef Shen originated the event to honor her dog Luke, adopted from Chicago Animal Care and Control.)
Snow White was brought to Chicago Animal Care And Control when her owner was charged with cruel and neglectful treatment, leaving her with no food or water, living in her own waste. While her sunny disposition shined during her behavior evaluation, it was clear she had some serious health concerns. We shortly confirmed she had cancer. But, this fantastically carefree dog let us know she was a fighter, so we supported her on her path from victim to survivor. While Snow White is in foster and growing stronger, please consider donating today to help cover Snow White's medical bills and live a full and healthy life.
