Chicago Animal Care & Control (often called the City Pound) is publicly funded through Chicago taxpayers and is operated and controlled by the Mayor’s office Last November, Mayor Rahm Emanuel introduced an ordinance to reduce the stray hold from 5 days to 3 days for dogs and zero days for cats. The resolution was introduced through the Budget Committee.

When we brought our concerns about the stray hold ordinance to several Aldermen last fall, they assured us that the ordinance would not be implemented until March 2015 in order for CACC to launch a public information campaign to educate Chicagoans. That has not happened. The reduced stray hold has gone into effect without the promised information campaign.

We believed issues regarding getting lost dogs and cats back to their owners needed to be addressed before implementing this change in the stray hold. We believe that this ordinance will REDUCE the likelihood of pets being returned to their families. Dogs with unknown ownership have a mere 3 days before they become property of CACC. Cats of unknown ownership will become property of CACC immediately. Yes, that's correct: from a 5 day hold to no-hold at all.

Lost a black iPhone 5

Lost a black iPhone 5 in black, 2-piece Boostcase.

Will pay $300.

I was picked up in a taxi at Clark & Chestnut at 7:20pm, and was dropped off at 1421 N Wells at 7:25pm. I paid cash. I think I left it in the backseat of the taxi.

  • Ainsley resident

    Call Yellow cab Lost & Found: 312-225-7456
    Look at and/or post notice at http://chicago.itaxi.ws/lost_found.
    Call the cab company dispatcher if it was another company besides Yellow.
    Also Google "lost in cab, Chicago" for other ideas.
    Good luck!
