Found Chicago rescues, rehabilitates and re homes previously homeless dogs. You might not have heard about Found Chicago, because the shelter is fairly new on the scene.
The Chicago Tribune's Bill Mullen wrote a great story about Found, as well as the Found founder Michael Heltzer and their special mission. They typically take dogs no one else will.
They work with the dogs' - who almost always have behavior and/or physical "issues," provide training, care and ultimately adopt them.
Some in Chicago's shelter world say the need for Found Chicago has been accelerated in recent months with all the issues going on at Chicago's Animal Care & Control. It was a vision ahead of its time, and now a reality - to take these dogs some say can not be rehabilitated. Like all shelters, Found Chicago needs volunteers, 773-539-3380 and also your contributions.
