On July 10, a 14-year-old dog was surrendered to the Chicago Animal Care and Control facility in Ill., because his owner was moving.

OWNER SURRENDER 7/10, "OWNER IS MOVING AND UNABLE TO FIND A PLACE WHERE DOGS ARE PERMITTED"
Now, the elderly dog, who should be enjoying the comfort of his twilight years, is spending his time behind the bars of a kennel run. Unfortunately, the facility is filled to capacity and the dog, named "Sir," is in desperate need of rescue - in fact, on Friday, the CACC Transfer Team noted that Sir is "urgent."
On July 9, these dire words were shared with the public about the situation at the animal control facility:
Adoption floor added tons of new dogs and is full. This is not an understatement. Any dog that is city property needs to leave CACC and free up space. Rescues if you have a hold you need to come get that dog. Any dog that is city property and has been waiting for more then 3 days is probably not going to be around tomorrow. There is no space. Dogs off stray hold need to leave. Rescues approved to pull from Chicago ACC PLEASE come down and pull it's an emergency.
Sir has been deemed "rescue only." Read more about why some dogs are listed as rescue only at this link.
Please take a moment to network this beautiful senior's information - he could use the help of strangers.
