Whole Foods Dog Wash a Swimming Success!

Our dog wash at Whole Foods Evanston South on August 17th was a swimming success! The heat just made the dogs--most of them, anyway--enjoy the whole bath experience. There were also post-grooming instant photos and dog treats, too.
Thanks to all the volunteers and thanks, too, to Whole Foods Evanston South, 1111 Chicago, Evanston.

We Call Him Sir Charles--Adopt a Dog in Chicago

We call him Sir Charles because he's so dignified. And his personality is very regal--plus friendly and loyal. Charles's owner died, so he's looking for someone to love him. He gets along with other dogs and is very devoted to anyone who spends a little time with him.
Email us to hear more about Charles.

Friendo Finds a Friend!

It was a little while ago that we rescued Friendo, a bantam rooster running around someone's front yard. At the time, he had a bad respitory infection, but--thanks to Dr. Horton at Chicago Exotics--Friendo made a complete recovery! But finding a home for a rooster, no matter how small, isn't easy. That crowing can be pretty loud! However, we're happy to report that Friendo has now moved to Michigan, where he is living on a hobby farm. Former Red Door rooster Reymundo is there, too. But there is plenty of room for both of them.

Baby Bunnies Need Foster Homes!

Doting rabbit mother Jacqueline came to Red Door on June 6th, with her brood of two-hour-old babies. Now those babies are weaned and old enough to go to a foster home until they can be fixed and adopted. Do you have any room for a small bunny or two? We guarantee that Panda, Ling-Ling, Dominino, Kit, Shay, or Squiggy will make you smile for the brief time one or two of them stay with you. We have cages, litter boxes, etc., to loan to fosterers.

Oh, and just because a couple of the rabbits are Cubs fans, future foster homes don't have to be!
