FOUND @ 41st & Drexel

"We found a very sweet dog today in our neighborhood (found at 41st and Drexel). She was found in between two houses, barking out in the cold all day. She has no identification. We brought her to MedVet (24 hour vet) and found out that she has no microchip, and recently had puppies. We think she may have been abandoned, but we are hoping to see if we can spread the message far and wide in the case that someone is looking for her. Please share - especially South Side folks!" ~ Neil Maude 12/29/17
