In response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Chicago has joined the State of Illinois in issuing a Stay at Home order effective Saturday, March 21st at 5pm CT. In addition, City of Chicago facilities are closed to the public. Staff are prioritizing essential services to protect the health and safety of our residents and employees. As such, we may be delayed in responding to non-essential inquiries and service requests. To stay up to date on the City of Chicago’s COVID-19 response, please visit the City Coronavirus Response Center site.
CACC’s foster program is designed to allow CACC’s most at-risk animals to be directly placed into short-term foster care allowing for quiet recovery, medical isolation while animals await transfer to a rescue, a calm environment for fearful or under-socialized animals, and / or urgent care for neonate kittens, puppies under eight (8) weeks, and senior animals. CACC’s goal for its foster program is also to provide a direct resource to its Homeward Bound Rescue Partners for more foster homes. If you are a Chicago Resident (or a Cook County Resident on a case by case basis) and are interested in becoming a foster caregiver to one of CACC’s animals. Email your application or any questions to CACCFoster@cityofchicago.org.
Thank you for helping CACC’s animals!
