Urgent dog foster needed

I saw a dog named Greta posted on FB last night. I see a lot of these posts, unfortunately, but for some reason this touched my soul. I cannot foster at the moment (have in the past) but felt the need to network this girl.

She is at Chicago Animal Control right now. There is a video of her and she is super sweet and terrified. She is "rescue only", which means a pet rescue organization has to go get...

I saw a dog named Greta posted on FB last night. I see a lot of these posts, unfortunately, but for some reason this touched my soul. I cannot foster at the moment (have in the past) but felt the need to network this girl.

She is at Chicago Animal Control right now. There is a video of her and she is super sweet and terrified. She is "rescue only", which means a pet rescue organization has to go get her and then will place her with a foster home.
She has very little time left. Perhaps a day, if that? I have no answers to any questions, so if you're interested call Animal Control. show up. Contact your pet rescue that you foster with. Quickly. This poor girl.

    Try reaching out to Sheri Berliner from Www.Petraits.Com . She is awesome and does amazing work with fostering and adopting dogs.

  • Thank you! I sent an email. I doubt Greta is still alive but it's worth a shot :(

  • Yeah Keyser, especially during the holidays. But that ratchet girl in the video has giraffe legs. She can cover 3 klicks in 5 minutes. And her boyfriend there is probably used to running a lot from the police and baby mamas. They must be caught!

  • I have a suggestion, find out what schools are offering summer classes within a one mile radious and show them the tape, they should be able to recognize their own students. Depending on the time of the day one can find out if they were coming or going from school.

Small woodworking project

I'm looking for someone to build a very simple wood shelf unit. I have it in stainless and glass, and want to replace the stainless with wood (I'll drop the glass shelves in place). This really is a quick project, I can provide a photo and dimensions.

Angry Homeless guys

Just shagged 2 of the guys that usually occupy the corner of Irving park and kimball. They were boozing it up and 1 was about to defecate behind a garage (s/w corner of drake and belle plaine). They were quite angry and confrontational. As they walked s/b St. Louis they were checking gates, probably to find a place to crash.

    Do NOT confront them.

    If it turns into a fight between you and them, and you punch then in the mouth, you will make them bleed ...

    AND you will tear open your knuckles. So YOU will bleed.

    Such a blood exchange is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS because of the very high risk of disease transmission. HIV, Hep C, etc., etc.

    If that happens, go immediately to the ER. It is a real medical emergency.

    Don't confront. Call 911. Take photos with your phone.

    @Nick: You're right. I should have qualified my response. The severely mentally ill aren't responsible for their actions, however something must be done to keep them from hurting themselves and others.

  • Spam Alert Don't be selling your used junk up in here, okay?

    Janu, in the hundreds upon hundreds upon hundreds of posts you have made on EB bemoaning matters large and small in your daily trudge through this mortal existence, have you ever actually followed even one person's helpful advice? Before veering right off onto the next "issue"?

  • Spam Alert I do take advice. I do call the police. I just let people know what's happening. Thank You for Everyblock so people know what's happening.
