The Anti-Cruelty Society (TACS) has been in existence practically 114 years now and although they began their endeavors with the equestrian sect, they eventually moved into more domesticated varieties of animals such as felines and canines. If you have not had the pleasure to visit their location at 169 West Grand Avenue in Chicago, this really is a must see when you are in and around the city.
As you are most likely aware of, there are so many felines in rescues and shelters today simply due to lack of care and understanding by humans. In order to alleviate this issue, The Anti-Cruelty Society is hosting a workshop on Monday, January 21st from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. Since this is Martin Luther King Day and many individuals will be on holiday, it would be a fantastic time to stop in and get involved.
The workshop is entitled the Helping Community Cats Workshop. It is fashioned to help you decide how to help cats and kittens roaming everywhere around your neighborhood and how to help prevent future generations from being born. Representatives from the Alley Cat Allies and the Tree House Animal
Foundation have formulated a short workshop teaching you how to educate your neighbors, create a safety net for cats and stop the cycle of breeding in your neighborhood. Although the workshop is FREE of charge, you will want to register with the Alley Cat Allies volunteer, Anna Morrison-Ricordati, by phoning 312.755.0513 or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The program will be held at the TACS Education and Training Center by entering from 169 West Grand Avenue. You can park for FREE in the TACS parking garage located on Wells Street; one-half block south of Grand Avenue.
Then on Monday, January 28th, those interested in running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon will meet at The Anti-Cruelty Society’s Mullane Auditorium. Those that may be intent on building a community of caring by assisting pets and educating people will want to join Team Anti-Cruelty in 2013.
This event will provide information on how to register for the Marathon, or other such Chicago athletic events. They would really like to take the time to explain the expectations – especially if you decide to compete as a charity runner.
The event is scheduled to take place from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. and will allow you the opportunity to get all of your questions answered. You can even sign up for the upcoming events.
Each and every event that is put on by The Anti-Cruelty Society is for the greater good of the animals. Since cats are especially in need, they want to do all that they can to provide a brighter future for them.
