47th Ward Alderman Helping Animals

Each month, Chicago’s 47th Ward Service Office has an Adoptable Section of their email newsletter that is sent to 10,000 people. The Adoptables Section highlights homeless pets that are available for adoption from various agencies in the City, including Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control, Treehouse, Chicago Canine Rescue, Found, Famous Fido Rescue and Adoption Alliance, and One Tail at a Time.

In addition, the 47th Ward collects food and supplies for the Friendship Pet Food Pantry. The monthly food pantry operates within the Lincoln Square Friendship Center to help families who have fallen on hard times keep their beloved pets by providing food assistance.
