Nabisco, who is clearly a work of art, was picked up by the Anti Cruelty Society field services team. He was so matted, you could barely see his face.
After Nabisco was picked up and groomed, it turned out that he had a deformed front leg. Despite this deformity, he gets around and plays fine. Eight-year-old Nabisco does require a special home, though.
Nabisco is happy as long as he can play and snuggle. Snuggling is important for him, and he’s small enough to fit on a snuggable lap.
Also, Nabisco shows no issues with the kitten in the office and appears to be fine with other dogs.
If you’re interested in meeting Nabisco, please let the front desk know as he is not currently on the adoption floor.
One significant reason dogs and cats are given up to shelters in Chicago—and all over—is that rentals and condos that allow pets can be hard to come by. Also, sometimes landlords simply change their minds, or decide on breed or size restrictions for no given reason. The Anti Cruelty Society recently hosted a symposium on the topic, led by Lydia Krupinski, director of community programs. Krupinski will discuss outcomes of the event with Steve and Steve on WGN.
Also, you can Pour Your Heart Out, Thursday, February 22, at the historic Union League Club of Chicago in the elegant Crystal ballroom from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Guests will sample an array of wine, beer, and cocktails while enjoying hors d’oeuvres, a wine pull, and a raffle prize table with one-of-a-kind items while helping to raise money for adoptable animals at the Anti Cruelty Society. Learn more HERE. I will be there sipping cocktails and supporting the Anti Cruelty Society. I hope to see you there.
