As emcee of this Adopt a Pet Day event, I kicked it all off talking about the importance of pet adoption. I had the honor of speaking about the Anti Cruelty Society and the special place they take in Chicago. They adopt more pets than any other facility, and they work with all reasonable shelters. They help out Animal Welfare League (where Hazel is from), and Tree House Humane, and a long list other other facilities. Though they are the City's largest and most well established facility, they may not always get the press they should. Sometimes you take your oldest friends for granted. (photo by Teresa Potasiak)
