Dog needs foster or adopter

This one year old shepherd mix was abandoned by its owner and left to be euthanized. He has some behavioral issues but will become your buddy if you give him treats and spend time with him. He needs a foster or adopter to socialize him. He is currently living in a cage so anyone that can work with him would help him.

  • ... & the absolute best watch-dog!!!

  • Andrew Warner Happy to live in Sauganash

    If you do not find a good home for him, you should contact the Pet Ministry at Unity of Chicago. We have volunteers that care for dogs while they find new homes.
    Go to unitychicago.org and you will find info there about the Pet Ministry.

Bed and Breakfast In The Neighborhood

The discussion on this subject keeps getting shut down on NextDoor. There is evidently some opposition to free speech over there and it might be best continued here.

"Red White and Blue: after two
Red and White - no overnight"

No overnight parking, snow or no snow:

No parking anytime after 2 inches of snowfall:

How long after the 2-inch snowfall can parking return? I have no idea, but I think sometime after the snowplowing is finished. (Nobody ever seems to have an answer to this question!)

Best car repair shop?

What are your favorite car repair shops--for brakes, etc? Thanks!

  • zippy8 mostly happy resident

    For Hondas only Haas on W. Montrose. I've gone to them for 10 years. Reliable, honest and fairly priced. Do not use Carrs Honda. They lied and said I needed new brakes when I didn't. Obviously dealers are over priced.

  • Albany Park Auto - Lawrence and Springfield. Wally is the best. No question. Best price. Will never add on more than you need. Honors his price. Fast. I have sent so many people to him.. but you can see for yourself on YELP. I would go to him for any vehicle.

Christmas Tree Options

Hi everyone! My family and I moved to AP recently. We've been wondering: what places around our area (St. Louis and Cullom) sell live Christmas trees? Are there any lots around or businesses that have them available? We don't have a car and I wouldn't mind a (hopefully) short walk. Thank you in advance for your help.

  • You're welcome!

  • It may be too far but the Home Depot on Addison and Kimball is where we get our tree every year. They are much more reasonable than the tree lots, as far as price.

These cats will be euthanized

These cats were abandoned after their owner passed away. They will be euthanized soon. Looking for someone that may be able to take them so they can live out the rest of their lives. They are about 17 years old.

  • CACC the city shelter is FULL right now. If you have room in your home to foster, please contact any of the rescues listed above to fill out a foster app. You'll save TWO lives: the animal who comes into your home and the animal who gets that cage. Every rescue I know needs more fosters, and it's FREE. Not to mention, good for the soul!

  • Lulu's Locker and Friends of CACC rescue both dogs and cats. PAWS also has a foster program. And Young at Heart specializes in seniors <3
