For The Very First Time, All Animals Were Adopted From Chicago Animal Care And Control

Way to go, people!

For the first time in the history of the organization, every able-bodied animal at the Chicago Animal Care and Control center was adopted.

“Chicago Animal Care and Control (CACC) works with community partners toward the common goal ofĀ minimizing the number of homeless and abandoned animals that come into the City shelter,” reads the center’s description on its government website.

It’s safe to say that they achieved their goal last week. The center shared the exciting news on theirĀ FacebookĀ page:

“We ARE OFFICIALLY OUT OF ADOPTABLE ANIMALS…Yep, you read that right, we are out of adoptable animals! It’s something we’ve never thought we’d say.”

The post added:

“But, we are still scheduling intake from the public, and our officers are still rescuing animals in the field, so we’ll probably have more again in the coming days.”

Since the beginning of pandemic, pet adoption centers all over the country have seen a boom in adoptions and foster care. As the quarantine continues, animal adoptions continue to soar.

Because of the continuity of the shelter-in-place orders, people are choosing to open their personal shelters to dogs, cats, and other animals in need of care.

Shelters across Chicago are seeing similar numbers of fosters and adoptions. To meet with growing interest while complying with distancing regulations, centers like PAWS Chicago have had to adapt. Last month PAWS Chicago launched a Virtual Adoption Process.

“PAWS Chicago is committed to saving homeless animals even during COVID-19,” theirĀ descriptionĀ reads. “Adopt online while you shelter in place. Starting now, you can find your animal, complete your paperwork, meet with an adoption counselor, and do it all from the comfort of your living room.”

If you’re still looking for a furry friend, as of this weekĀ thereā€™s a new handful of pets that are just waiting for you to adopt them!

Presently, there are 33 dogs and 45 cats available for adoption at PAWS Chicago. Visit their website to adopt, volunteer, foster, or donate.
