Since the Chicago City Council and Mayor approved the 3 day stray hold, the Director of Lost Dogs Illinois has made a commitment to try to attend the City of Chicago Animal Care and Control (CACC) Commissioners Meeting. The meetings are held every two months at CACC starting at 8:30. After the meeting is over, the public is allowed to read a statement or ask questions.
On March 19, our Director read this statement to the Commissioners.
Our Director attended the next scheduled meeting. This is the statement she read: “Since Animal Welfare League and other facilities have been approved to hold Chicago stray animals, aren’t their Return To Owner statistics posted publicly like CACCs.
- What are the fees and fines that each facility charges and are they posted publicly like CACC does?
- What is the cross communication among these facilities in order to help owners find their lost pets?
- Since all these facilities have been approved to hold stray animals for CACC, why are they not required to post photos on the internet or Facebook?”
CACC is supported by Chicago taxpayers. As taxpayers, you have a voice and should not settle for anything less than excellence from CACC. The next meeting is Thursday, July 16th at CACC.
