Ir’s a political mess, what’s going on at Chicago Animal Care and Control, it’s unfortunate. And animals don’t benefit by people and organizations bickering. Want to know the real story, and my personal views – check out my blog post on the proposed No Kill ordinance. For sure, we know, without collaboration little will get done – no matter what is in an ordinance. Things do need to improve – and Charlie Propsom, founder of Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control agrees. Hear my discussion with Charlie on Steve Dale’s Pet World, WGN Radio.
We do discuss what Friends of Chicago Animal and Control is, and what the place and purpose of the municipal shelter in Chicago.
One issue we also talk about is – intake that is now 17,500 at Chicago Animal Care and Control, that means that’s how many animals enter the system. It’s down from several years ago. That’s good. But the proposed ordinance doesn’t address how to further reduce that number.
Propsom talks about the serious need for volunteers to do everything from walk dogs on site at animal control to folks needed to foster dogs and cats.

I talk with newsman Dave Schwanee about our mutual friend, legendary broadcast Fred Winston. Hear my interview with Fred.
