In an effort to better serve Chicago’s residents and animals, Chicago Animal Care and Control is implementing new hours for all animal intake (strays and owner-surrenders). Effective December 2, 2019, CACC will accept stray and owner-surrendered animals from 12 p.m. – 7 p.m. daily. The Chicago Police Department and the Chicago Fire Department will still have 24-hour access to the facility to bring in stray animals that their officers find on duty. CACC continues to work with partner organizations including HelpingLostPets.com, Lost Dogs Illinois and Lost Cats Illinois, as well as local agencies including PAWS Chicago, the Animal Welfare League, The Garrido Stray Rescue Foundation, Tree House Humane Society, Harmony House for Cats and the Anti-Cruelty Society to provide services for stray animals.
