Hinsdale Humane Supports Dogs for Veterans; Anti-Cruelty Society Bark in the Park is Back


Check it out HERE, from Steve Dale’s Pet World on WGN Radio, as Jacki Rossi, executive director of Hinsdale Humane Society about their program to provide dogs for veterans. It’s a marvelous program which may quite literally save lives, and certainly change lives of heroes who have served our nation. We describe some of the differences service dogs make for veterans, and that’s not to mention the benefit of finding homes for homeless dogs. Veterans can even arrange for a pet therapy session.

Jennifer Goodsmith is Vice President Mission Advance at Anti-Cruelty Society of Chicago and she cheers here on Steve Dale’s Pet World, WGN Radio that Bark in the Park is back at the Green Outside Soldier Field on May 21 (starting 8 a.m.) in the park and in person. This is the most significant fundraiser for Anti-Cruelty. There will be a special dedication at the event for fallen Chicago police officer Ella French, who was a huge dog lover. Also, in conjunction with the dog event, there will be a music festival, and food and vendors displaying all sorts of pet products. Steve is a co-emcee of Bark with Hosea Sanders and Roz Varon, both with WLS-TV. Learn more about Bark in the Park here.

There’s a new dog sport.
