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.
