Just thought all pet owners would like to know. If you own a dog and it gets lost and placed at Chicago pound, they will hold for 3 days. The latest appointment is 6pm. So if you work? guess you either take days of or your dog can be put to sleep.
And if you own a cat? Bummer - cats don't have ANY hold. So if it is placed at the pound it's as good as dead.
If you are a member of any other community group please repost.

Maybe it's time for a new Mayor?

    The closing of mental health centers, public schools (which seem to cost the city more as empty), the neglect of neighborhoods like Lawndale; these are reasons for a new mayor
