Looking for Love: The Anti-Cruelty Society's Cat & Dog of the Week

Looking for Love: The Anti-Cruelty Society's Cat & Dog of the Week


11-month-old boxer/pit bull mix

Xena is a friendly, excitable young dog. She's a physical girl and can get rather jumpy and occasionally mouthy when really worked up, but she settles nicely with a firm verbal cue. Xena is food motivated and enjoys toy play. New adopters should work on her basic manners (not jumping up, proper leash manners, etc) and plan on getting this gal the regular aerobic exercise she needs. Xena is a fun dog!


3-year-old domestic shorthair

Rocky came to the shelter with his brother when their owner could no longer care for them. Rocky starts off a little reserved, but scratch his chin and you'll see the true Rocky: gentle, sweet and social. His tear duRockycts are over-active so he often has watery eyes. Rocky is looking for a forever home where he can play the days away and then snuggle close each night. Hurry over to say hello to this lovely guy!
The Anti-Cruelty Society is located at 510 N LaSalle, Chicago, IL 60654.

    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 Watch312.com, and is a Guest Blogger for Tails Inc.
