CACC staff will be at the Daley Plaza to accept donated pet supplies and further boost awareness of adoptable pets.

“Studies have shown that pets can decrease stress, improve health and even help children with their emotional and social skills,” Carina E. Sanchez, PBC’s Executive Director said. “As a pet owner, I know firsthand the joy animals can bring to your life and we at the PBC are honored to partner with CACC to find great homes and give these pets the opportunity to become beloved.”
