Organizations Working Together To Keep Families and Pets in Their Homes

Another busy Saturday in Englewood for Lost Dogs Illinois, Chicago Wolves, Realtors to the Rescue, Barriers Against Repeated Cruelty, Pals with Pawz and others.  Over 380 dogs and cats received free vaccinations, food, toys, free microchips, free collars, harnesses, leashes and a personal engraved ID tag.  This summer 1,616 dogs and cats in Aldermen Raymond Lopez’s 15th ward received these much needed free services.

Lost Dogs Illinois, Chicago Wolves and Realtors of Rescue joined forces this summer to help those who live in underserved areas. We believe in preserving the human/animal bond and with these Free Health Clinics it has given families and their four legged members hope.

In order to keep those momentum going, LDI needs your help.  A small donation of $10.00 will purchase an ID tag and a collar/leash. You can donate by clicking here. http://www.lostdogsillinois.org/support-ldi/donate/

Paving the way to keep Pets in their homes!

At the Brighton Park Area Free Pet Health Fair (Saturday, 10/1) approximately 390 dogs, cats & bunnies received a personally engraved IG tag donated by Lost Dogs Illinois. As each dog left the clinic, their tag was attached to their collar or harness.  They also received free vaccines and microchips which were registered to the owner at implant. Food and toys were also donated.  This event was generously sponsored by the Chicago Wolves organization.  Lost Dogs Illinois would like give a special shout out to Realtors to the Rescue who have generously donated over $6,000 to LDI this year to allow us to provide ID tags, collars, harnesses and leashes.  Thank you to staff and volunteers of City of Chicago Animal and Control who came to help.  The new face of sheltering is prevention and preserving the human/animal bond.  Lets keep these pets in their homes!

For us to continue this kind of program, a small donation of $10.00 will purchase an ID tag and a collar/leash. You can donate by clicking here. http://www.lostdogsillinois.org/support-ldi/donate/

What happens when a City funded animal control (City of Chicago Animal Care and Control), not for profit organization (Lost Dogs Illinois) and a professional hockey team (Chicago Wolves) join together for the second time?  They put on a Free Pet Health Fair sponsored by Alderman Raymond Lopez.

As quoted on Lopez’s Facebook page:  “On average, the rabies vaccination as well as the five main canine vaccines can cost up to $150 per pet. Thanks to this collaborative effort, not only was I able to keep our pets current on their shots & healthy, but also save 15th Ward Residents over $105,000 in required vaccination costs!”

Also each dog was microchipped and received an engraved ID tag that was attached to their collar.  Over 400 ID tags were donated by Lost Dogs Illinois.

These pictures say it all….. preserving the human/animal bond.
