Gloria Lissner of Famous Fido has a mission, it’s her calling, her life’s work – that is to save animals.
How many has Gloria saved in her lifetime? If you ask her, she’ll say “Not enough, they keeping coming in.” Here’s Gloria on my WGN Radio show.
That’s why she has a brand new facility, Famous Fido Rescue & Adoption Alliance, 3124 W. Irving Park Road (at Kedzie).
The problem is – as it is these days in animal welfare for any new facility….she needs help. I mean dollars, and I mean volunteers. She’s doing good work, and no one is as committed to the animals – for decades they come first.
There’s an open house and Garden Party Sunday, August 28 noon to 6 p.m. At least come by and check it out….I hope to be there myself. There will be raffles and food and wine….Their mission here is no different that some others, but they do take in animals others won’t only because Gloria’s heart is larger than the new spacious digs the shelter is. Gloria says ‘yes,’ and then finds a way to pay. . . If you’re among those who are disappointed by a local welfare group that lost its way, Famous Fido’s mission was ahead of it’s time, and place to check out. The mission remains pure. It’s not Uncle Sam who wants you it’s Aunt Gloria.
