Found Chihuahua in Portage Park

My neighbors were walking their dog this morning and this little guy followed them home. Was cold and hungry. He's safe and sound for now and will be checking for a chip tonight. Anyone know if someone is missing this sweet little guy?

  • Chitown Gal, doesn't matter that someone unlocked your gate. Yes, the correct course of action is to make sure the gates are closed before letting the dogs out, and not leaving them in the yard unattended. That said, yes, sometimes accidents do happen.

  • Also want to add that the chihuahua in the photo is stretching so it's a little unfair to say he's malnourished. And his nails are a bit long, but also not necessarily a sign of neglect. However, taking those two things into consideration as well as the fact he isn't chipped and no one seems to be looking for him, I would say he is better off going to your friend's forever home. Thanks for taking care of this little pup.

Community Groups Cultivate Partnership to Achieve Tangible Benefit for Local Area

After months of planning Redeemer Church, a church plant from Park Ridge, has teamed up with the Dunning Read Conservation Area, Friends of Dunning Read, West Portage Park Neighborhood Association, Friends of the Parks, along with volunteers from two corporate sponsors, to come out and clean up our very Own Natural Prairie on the Northwest Side.

After months of planning Redeemer Church, a church plant from Park Ridge, has teamed up with the Dunning Read Conservation Area, Friends of Dunning Read, West Portage Park Neighborhood Association, Friends of the Parks, along with volunteers from two corporate sponsors, to come out and clean up our very Own Natural Prairie on the Northwest Side.

Redeemer Church and the Friends of Dunning Read has been in talks about organizing a clean-up event at the Dunning Read Conservation Area. Because of the interest generated by Peter Schwich, Friends of Dunning Read were able to work with Friends of the Parks to recruit additional volunteers from American Airlines as well as AXA Insurance Company.

It is always a struggle to find volunteers to come maintain the State Land, which was designated a Conservation Area by the 2004 State Wildlife Action Plan. Since the formation of the Friends of Dunning Read, who are charged with organizing local resources to care for the area, there has been more attention brought, in turn realizing tangible benefits.

Thank You to all of the Groups participating in the Dunning Read Conservation Area to bring real change to our community.

Beware

Saturday night around 8:00 pm ( dark and raining) two white men came to our door and tried to sell us a security system. They were very pushy and really tried to get in the house.

Saturday night around 8:00 pm ( dark and raining) two white men came to our door and tried to sell us a security system. They were very pushy and really tried to get in the house. My husband is a carpenter so when they started talking about door jams and had no clue what they were talking about my husband told them to leave. They did, but were going door to door knocking on everyone's door. My husband called the police and they came out within 10 minutes. Unfortunately they were gone. The police said that it sounded like a scam, just trying to see who lives where. They never mentioned the company that they were representing. Just want everyone to know to beware.

  • Tommy G retired

    The 2 white guys were in the Irving Cumberland area. They represent Vivint alarm company. They are slow to identify themselves. They are pushy and even if you have an alarm system they try to indicate how your system can be defeated. I called my alarm company ADT and they said BEWARE. The best part of their system is the camera in the door bell which you can watch on the alarm panel video screen, but be prepared to pay about $60. a month for a basic system.

  • They were on Pittsburgh Ave, I just told them I wasn't interested.

Cut grass

Would someone be willing to cut my grass on a weekly basis?

  • Do any of your neighbors use a landscape service? If so, you should ask them if they can do your lawn, too. They can be surprisingly affordable.

  • pattymelt is mostly in charge

    See if there is a teenager on your block who could use the money or maybe ask if you can put up a sign at a local church to find someone to do it.

  • Maggiemay 45 year resident @ PP

    I have a landscape service for 4 years now that is very reliable. They even clean my gutters at the end of the season. 3 more neighbors are also using them. Email me n I can give u their number.
