Sunday is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day and to celebrate, Barkworthies natural dog treats is covering adoption costs at two Chicago shelters. and were selected as featured shelters in the Barkworthies Chews Rescue program, which funds adoptions for eligible dogs during the last weekend in April.The strain of canine influenza found in dogs at the shelter is one that was first discovered in the Chicago area in 2015. The Anti-Cruelty Society put adoptions on hold in spring 2016 following a similar outbreak at the shelter. The Lake County, Ind., Animal Control and Adoption Center reopened last week after being closed for several weeks because of a similar outbreak.On Monday, "we discovered several cases of the virus in separate locations throughout the shelter. Because canine influenza has not been widely reported in the Chicago area in the past, many dogs have no immunity and will become ill if exposed," so the group decided to halt adoptions, according to a statement.If it weren't for those irritating lease restrictions, our apartments would basically look an urban version of the Old Friends sanctuary. But if you have room in your residence (room in hearts goes without saying), then you'll probably want to clear the calendar for Sunday, April 30. Two Chicago-area rescues are waiving adoption fees for eligible dogs in recognition of Adopt a Shelter Pet Day (otherwise known as the greatest day of the year).PAWS Chicago provides a lifetime guarantee for every cat and dog in our program. Euthanasia is only reserved for pets who are irremediably suffering, where medical treatment cannot alleviate the condition, or for dangerous dogs who possess a threat to the public, as determined by behavior experts. Our save rate is an industry leading 97+ percent, despite taking in a very high risk population of pets from the city pound. Because of the quality care administered to all of our homeless pets, surrender fees help cover the significant cost of medically caring for, sheltering and adopting out your pet.We rescue all breeds of dogs including, but not limited to, the following breeds: Havanese, Shih Tzu, Poodle, Chihuahua, Yorkskire Terrier, Lhasa Apso, Boston Terrier, French Bulldog, Cocker Spaniel, Border Collie, German Shepherd, Boxer, American Bulldog, Bernese Mountain Dog, Weimaraner, Rottweiler, Am Staff Terrier, Great Pyrenees, Standard Poodle, Mastiff, Pug, Cavalier King Charles, Spaniel, Greyhound, Vizsla, American Eskimo, Pomeranian, Miniature Pinscher, Doberman, Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, English Bulldog, Newfoundland, Coonhound, Mountain Cur, Bloodhound, Plott Hound, German Shorthair Pointer, Chinese Crested, Akita, Chow, Airedale, Alaskan Malamute, Basenji, Australian Shepherd, Cairn Terrier, Corgi, Collie, Spitz, Maltese, Papillon, Pekingese, Saint Bernard, Rhodesian Rideback, Labradoodle, Husky, Basset Hound, Beagle, Wheaten Terrier, Australian Shepherd, Schnauzer and Springer Spaniel.
