The City of Chicago takes in thousands of unwanted animals every year from citizens, brings stray animals in off the streets, and provides care for evidence animals in court cases. Contrary to perception, most of these animals are wonderful, loving companion animals–they simply have nowhere else to go.
And that’s why Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control was founded. We’re here to provide help for as many of those unfortunate animals as we possibly can. We do that by:
Providing food, medical care and adoption opportunities for CACC animals in our foster program
Spreading awareness about Chicago Animal Care and Control at 2741 South Western and promoting the great animals who are available for adoption there.
Educating people about the proper care of their animals
Advocating humane treatment of all animals
Gifting the city shelter with resources the city budget doesn’t cover.
