Quirky Pet Adoption Segment on WGN Radio


Chicago Animal Care and Control is featured in this WGN radio dog adoption segment with a not-so-quirky dog named Quirky.

At 9:40 at 720AM or wgnradio.com or CLTV watch/listen in with Steve Cochran, We’ll feature this 6-year old dog who arrived at the shelter nearly four months ago as a stray. It’s really frustrating that this fun, funny and good time pup hasn’t been adopted. Shelter workers call him a “goofball.” He knows how to sit, and to offer a paw He often likes to cuddle, and even more often wants to play. He’s likes other dogs and people.

Please spread the word – tell your friends….this guy should not still be at the shelter. Action needs to be taken – and the best course of action is finding a forever home. We hope to do that.

New Chicago Animal Care and Control Acting Director Kelley Gandurski also reminds us all about the Big Night for Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control (CACC). This non-profit helps to support the City’s municipal shelter. This is their most important fundraiser of the year. And you can help to save lives just by eating. That’s right, just as in the movie Big Night, you can stuff yourself, as so many of Chicago’s top chefs will be there at food stations throughout the Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington St. (at Michigan Avenue) on October 25, 6 p.m.

This year’s Honorary Chair is 38th Ward Alderman Nick Sposato, an enthusiastic supporter of CACC and a supporter of saving lives. I am again the emcee This year,  I have a co-emceeing for Big Night,  my oldest friend Paul Lisnek of CLTV and WGN-TV. No doubt some will attend just to bet on whether or not Paul can stay awake.
