Adoptable Pets of the Week

By Kevin Robinson in Miscellaneous on Sep 1, 2010 7:00PM

As we've been mentioning, Chicago's Animal Care and Control is swamped with pets after taking in over 50 cats from a local animal hoarder. Last week we featured some of the overwhelming number of cats that ACC needs to adopt into loving homes to make room at the city's shelter. This week, we're taking a look at some of the cats. And don't forget, if you don't see a pet you love here, there are still lots of dogs and cats at Chicago's Animal Care and Control that still haven't been adopted - you can check them all out here. If you got space in your home and room in your heart, won't you consider adopting one of these wonderful pets from Chicago's Animal Care and Control?

Winnie, Sunny D, Jilley, Jerry and June Bug are all right here in your city, just waiting to come home with you. As always, the adoption fee is $65.00 which includes spay/neuter, vaccines, a microchip and a city license, and all cats are screened for FIV. If you have room in your heart and your home for these pets, Chicago Animal Care & Control, at 2741 S. Western Ave in Chicago, is open for adoptions Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. You can visit in person, are call or email Patty Cerny, adoption volunteer, at (773) 230-2542 or email at graz97 [at] aol [dot] com.

If you want to keep up with all the awesomeness at ACC, become a fan of Cherie Travis, Chicago Commissioner of Animal Care and Control on Facebook.

And remember: plenty of the previous animals we've featured are also still available for adoption.
