Congratulations to Red Door volunteer Liz Sharp for her stellar interview in today's Chicago Tribune, promoting the beauty and wisdom of urban chickens. You can catch the entire story, including a videdo of Liz in her chicken coop, here:
This year, get a great holiday photo of your pet! Come to Sit! Boutique on December 14, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. for a photo-with-Santa pet session. All proceeds from the photos benefit the homeless animals at Red Door. Also that day: elves! refreshments! cookies! Sit! Boutique is a great place to buy quality cat and dog food, toys, and pet beds. The boutique is located at 2316 W. Leland, Chicago, in the Lincoln Square neighborhood.
Look for the Red Door donation dogs on the streets of Andersonville on December 14th. They will be wearing their donation pouches, like Benji here, and looking for any spare bills or coins you can donate for the homeless animals at the shelter. The dogs will be out, starting around 5225 N. Clark Street, around 12 noon.
Don your most ugly holiday sweater and head over to The Fat Cat Bar & Grill, 4840 N. Broadway, Chicago, on December 6th. The party starts at 7 p.m. Cover price is $30, which gives you all you can drink of beer, wine, well liquor, or soda. A portion of every cover price ($5) goes to the homeless animals at Red Door. Don't miss this fun event! OK, we'll let you in even if you aren't wearing an ugly holiday sweater--but remember: many of us will be wearing horrible holiday cheer!
Congratulations to the City of Chicago for choosing a dog as the art work for the 2009 city sticker. This sticker, designed by Chicago high school student Denise Ferguson, will appear 1.3 million car windshields in June 2009. Let's hope that's another step in making Chicago a no-kill city for animals.
