Water Trees.

This hot weather is very hard on the trees in the parkways. If you can try and water them.

    Don't waste water. Feed younger trees with a root feeder (brings water down to the roots.) Added bonus: helps roots grow down rather than out (saving sidewalks.)

  • I did report some of the trees months ago. Glad cooler weather is coming. I hope we get some rain.

Two broken legs, abandoned by owner

I normally do only cat rescue but, on my way home from PAWS Intake on 26th Street, I came across a dog who had been hit by a car. I couldn't just drive past.

    Diamond suffered two broken back legs after being hit by a car on Friday 8/18. The driver slowed down to see what he hit, but he did not stop. The dog laid on the side of the road unable to move. A group of young men hovered over her, discussing what to do.

    Is this dog still looking for a home? My husband and I have started looking into adopting a dog and we wanted to help with a dog with special needs. We both have a lot of animal experience. Let me know.

    Hi MAF. Thank you for asking. Diamond is not yet available for adoption. She is still at the vet clinic where her surgery was done, and they are working with her so she will be able to walk again. I'm not sure when she will be ready for an adoptive...

    Hi MAF. Thank you for asking. Diamond is not yet available for adoption. She is still at the vet clinic where her surgery was done, and they are working with her so she will be able to walk again. I'm not sure when she will be ready for an adoptive home but, when that time comes, the adoption will be done through a no-kill adoption shelter like PAWS. If you'd like me to contact you at that time, please send me your contact info.

    There are many special needs dogs currently available in Chicago if you'd like to move forward now. And Animal Care and Control is in desperate need of foster parents, so you might want to consider doing that as well. In any case, thank you for looking out for the special needs dogs!

Three car collision on Foster and Pulaski outside Jewl-Osco

At approximately 12:30 today a man ran a red light and smashed into a young lady about to make a right turn and pieces of car went everywhere. Once she was out of the car she wasnt in very good condition so i stayed with her on the busstop bench until the ambulance came and ie tried several times to contact her mother. The guy who hit her took off running from his car immediately. I was just wondering if there was any information on this young ladies condition and if they ever found the guy Any info would be great, im really worried about her. Thanks guys. Be careful out ther

  • I can't believe noone held the mustard until the cops got there. A while ago a drunk crashed into several cars and injured 2 people, I instinctively ran after him and tackled him to the ground as he tried to run, best feeling ever.

  • Mary Moore locl

    I agree! i think there was so much commotion that it took a minute to register. if i had seen him ran off id of followed him to call the police. If the cameras over there dont get him im sure karma will.
