Cat & Dog of the Week from The Anti-Cruelty Society

Cat & Dog of the Week from The Anti-Cruelty Society


4-year-old hound female hound mix

Penny is a sweet pooch, who came to the shelter when her family had a new baby. She has some previous training, including cues like sit, down, and shake. She misses her family and is very stressed here at the shelter, so a slow introduction to her new home would be best. She is very polite, and takes treats very nicely. Penny tolerated all handling, but she was uncomfortable with having her paws touched. She does like her chin scratched though. Penny would probably fit into a variety of low-key calm homes, that will give her the time and space she needs to adjust.




2-year-old female domestic shorthair

Gabiola is a beautifully full-figured young lady who came to the shelter when her owner was moving and couldn't take her along. She is a sweet girl who can sometimes be a bit of a diva and can easily be over stimulated. Gabiola will eagerly play with toys - which will be a great way to keep her happy and entertained! Once settled into her new home, Gabiola is sure to become a wonderful companion and cuddly friend. Come by today and say hello!

    Tatiana's Tails

    Tatiana grew up with dogs, cats, hamsters, parrots, rabbits, guinea pigs, and an iguana… just to name a few pets. She began her professional career with animals in 1995 at Brookfield Zoo. Tatiana has studied wild dolphins in Australia and rescued wildlife in Florida, but she always says that people are truly at the heart of her work. The welfare of people and animals is connected through a shared environment and the same traits of empathy and compassion that make someone a good pet owner also simply make people better neighbors and citizens. If it walks, hops, or slithers, Tatiana cares about it. She currently oversees the Humane Education programs at The Anti-Cruelty Society, hosts "Chicago Tails" on, and is a Guest Blogger for Tails Inc.
