CHICAGO — Chicago Animal Care and Control hopes to find families for some of its animals during an event this weekend.
The city agency and its partners will host an animal adoption event 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday-Sunday at The Cube at Westfield Old Orchard, 4999 Old Orchard Center in suburban Skokie.
People can come to meet available dogs and discuss adopting pets with Animal Control. There will also be photo opportunities at a tennis ball art installation and custom dog bandana decorating.
The event is part of a partnership between the Amazon Pop Up in Chicago and BISSELL, a foundation working to end pet homelessness. Attendees can get dog food and treats donated by Amazon. The pop-up donated more than 3,000 pounds of food and treats — enough for more than 100 dogs — and is providing hundreds of toys, balls, leashes and pet clean-up bags for new pet parents to be fully prepared to take their furry friends home, according to a news release.
