Found Dog

This dog was found wandering on Cullerton near Oakley. She was wearing a harness and is friendly. She knew some commands so is certainly someone's pet. We could not keep her, so she was turned in to Chicago Animal Care & Control at 2700 S. Western. She will be held on stray hold for 3 days for her owners to claim her. After 3 days she is available for rescues to pull her. After 5 days she becomes eligible for euthanasia.

Please share so that her owners can claim her.

    FYI, I have posted on CraigsList, Lost Dogs Illinois and here. I have also put up flyers.

    As stated in my original post, she is friendly. She is a large pit bull/boxer mix.

    As for the comments about CACC, it is an open-access shelter, meaning that is legally required to take in every animal that is brought through its doors. That is about 20-25 thousand animals per year. Unfortunately, there are not enough homes for all of those pets, so euthanasia does occur. The current live rate for dogs is about 60%. The live rate for cats was about 90% earlier this year.

    If you would like to make a difference in the lives of these pets, here are some steps that you can take:
    - spay/neuter your own pets
    - adopt, don't shop for pets Plenty of great pets can be found for adoption at CACC or one of their partner rescues.
    - volunteer with CACC or one of the rescues that pulls from the CACC.
    - donate to one of the many animal rescues in town.
    - share information about lost pets and adoptables with your social media circle.

    Here is a good place to start for information:

    Cats are disproportionately killed at shelters. Friendly cats can appear to be feral, due to the environment. Uninterested or inexperienced staff members do not necessarily scan cats, pit bulls, rotties, etc. for microchips (first hand experience), regardless of the ordinance that says they will/must. Taking any animal there during the recent outbreak of canine flu (which the CDC now reports can be transmitted to cats) is a death sentence itself. DO NOT take puppies or kittens to any of these open access shelters at this time. Find another way, foster if you can. If you contact a rescue and volunteer to foster the animal you find, most times they will provide medical and other supplies as long as you can keep the animal in your home until they can find another foster home or it's adopted from your home. AWL, ACS or CACC are not places for seniors or babies of any species on a good day, with this outbreak it's worse.

25 displaced by extra-alarm fire in Pilsen

The three-story building in the 1900 block of South Wolcott was occupied when the blaze began about 1:40 a.m., but no residents were hurt, Fire Media Affairs spokesman Will Knight said.

  • Not that this is applicable to this fire but so many people in Pilsen have mountains of clutter in and around their homes and apartments. Clutter encourages fire. Those large plastic pop bottles, when empty ,act as explosives when they get hot. Be responsible for the safety of your family and home and edit clutter. Any CFD officer will suggest this. Also have a fire extinguisher ready and handy. They are not expensive.

Do you have a kitchen Fire Extinguisher?

I purchased one for $20 at Home Depot.
Small but mighty.
Also available on Amazon.
Could be a $20 life/home saver one day.

Fire Extinguishers need to be as mandatory
as smoke detectors.
