Today is a great day. You know why? I became an official volunteer at Chicago Animal Care & Control. Was is a simple process? No. But was it worth it? Absolutely. I was able to help with an adoption today and I helped a really sweet family meet an even sweeter dog. She’s going to be living the best life now. While the process is lengthy, I highly encourage you to look into volunteering at your local city shelter. You can find CACC volunteer information here.
Since getting more involved with our city shelter, I’ve been working on the Fund the Shelters campaign. If you haven’t already please consider donating. I can assure you, every dollar will go straight to the animals. As part of the campaign, we’re throwing a fundraiser on May 2 at Trader Todd’s! Stay tuned for all the details but please mark your calendars!
Now that Chicago weather is turning, there are so many wonderful events benefitting rescues all over the city. So I’ve compiled all the ones I can find for you to choose from. Hint: go to all of them!
You can find the calendar of events here.
Ellis – Poor Ellis was found as a stray in Chicago and when Fetching Tails Foundation met him he was so shut down. Just to get him out of the pavilion their volunteer Erica had to crawl on the ground with him! He is dog friendly and would benefit from someone who has a confident playful dog in their house already. You can see Ellis and all his handsomeness here.
Cowen- OMG where do we start with Cowen? Fetching Tails Foundation practically begged on social media for someone to foster this dog, for a long time and then did live videos at cacc of him. He was at the shelter since December and they didn’t pull him until mid-March. He is amazing and so friendly. Frank said yes to fostering and we were so relieved. Cowen is available for adoption and more information on him can be found here.
These pants are my new favorite. Comfortable, affordable, and cute, they’re from LC Lauren Conrad. I picked up this shirt while on my European adventures. I found a similar one which I’ve linked below!
