Several months ago, we received a call from a WSHS supporter about a paralyzed dog that needed help. Carrera was found on the streets of Chicago by a Good Samaritan and was taken to Chicago Animal Care and Control.

 Volunteers on the morning cat cleaning shifts scrub, scoop, wash, sweep, mop and freshen up all the living areas for the 60 cats living at the shelter.  There’s a lot to accomplish on this shift and the Tuesday and Thursday morning crew has their routine down to a science.  

Meet Icy and her son Hercules. They lived a life of neglect, hunger and danger as outdoor dogs on a property facing a busy road. Icy had several litters of puppies but they all fell prey to other animals or cars on the road. Hercules is the only one to survive.
