Update 8/7/14 Dulce was rescued!

On August 2, a 12-year-old dog was walked into the Chicago Animal Care and Control facility in Illinois and surrendered by his owner. According to the facility, the owners advised the staff that they "just could not take care of him anymore."

The Chicago Animal Care and Control (CACC) Transfer Team, which promotes "rescue only" dogs at the facility, has advised that the dog, named "Dulce," is very urgent - in other words, for his life to be spared, he needs to be rescued soon. In fact, the Petharbor listing which was created for Dulce was taken down during the writing of this article - this elderly dog is scheduled to be put down tonight.

Dulce was listed on Petharbor as a neutered Cairn Terrier and Jack (Parson) Russell Terrier mix. He is available for rescue by a Homeward Bound Partner ONLY.

According to a volunteer at the facility, a firm hold by an approved rescue partner is needed as soon as possible.

Please take a moment to network on Dulce's behalf, before he is lost forever.
