Information for Community Pet Owners:

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.

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.

Water Shut Off on E Elm Street , Saturday, 3/28

Memo from condo management advising that City of Chicago is shutting off all water on the entire block of E Elm St, from State-LSD, tomorrow, 3/28, from 2p.m.-8p.m. in order to accomodate the new development on State/Elm. WHY DIDN'T CITY POST NOTICES ON THE ENTIRE BLOCK FOR PUBLIC ??? Why was notice not posted on every residence? I think the city certainly could have done a better job informing those of us who live here. We have no Aldermanic representation...

Memo from condo management advising that City of Chicago is shutting off all water on the entire block of E Elm St, from State-LSD, tomorrow, 3/28, from 2p.m.-8p.m. in order to accomodate the new development on State/Elm. WHY DIDN'T CITY POST NOTICES ON THE ENTIRE BLOCK FOR PUBLIC ??? Why was notice not posted on every residence? I think the city certainly could have done a better job informing those of us who live here. We have no Aldermanic representation at this time... thanks to a run-off, BUT, the city should be doing a better job .. this isn't just about new projects... city has ignored the fact that the public now is forced to walk in traffic as sidewalks around this new project have been taken over by heavy equipment. Beer cans, etc. left around the area. Parking without proper permit is an ongoing issue due to this construction. Now, a water shut down for hours means no heat, no plumbing, etc.
