In 2017 Chicago Animal Care and Control took in almost 15,000 animals.
Of the 14,906 animals that were taken in, rescue partners transferred more than 1/2 of them into their care (8,030). Without these partners, most of those animals would have died. The question we need to ask is WHY? While performance and lifesaving has improved in Chicago’s animal shelters significantly over the past ten years and lifesaving progress has been made at Chicago Animal Care and Control over the past two years, treatable and rehabilitatable homeless pets are still being killed in Chicago’s shelters that can be saved.
JOIN OUR MOVEMENT TO SAVE THEM ALL
Across the country, thousands of communities have made the commitment to saving 90% or more of their homeless pets in their municipal and non-profit shelters. Why should our great city be any different?
PURPOSE & WHY?
The world doesn’t need more traditional fundraisers raising large dollar amounts at some big fancy party.
What the animal welfare world does need is a more impactful narrative that exposes truth with a focus on providing solutions.
People who speak on behalf of our pets in a way that makes people pay attention, engage and listen to the “why”.
We believe that by working collectively whether you are a politician, teacher, activist, rescue founder, artist or pet lover as one cohesive unit can and will create No kill communities. We will show you how.
Join us in being the voice of the voiceless through creative one of a kind experiences.
