From CBS2 Chicago:
When Quincy, Ill. And Cedar Rapids, Iowa were ravaged by floods last month, there was a human toll paid in damaged property and lost homes, but there was also a toll exacted on pets.
“The people that lost their homes, they lost everything – they moved in with family, most of them and they can’t keep their pets,” said PAWS Chicago founder Paula Fasseas. …
“Many people just abandoned dogs and let them loose,” Fasseas said. …
If you think you’d benefit by taking home a flood dog you can do so Sunday from 11-5 p.m. at PAWS Chicago on North Clybourn.
