LOST PET RESOURCES: We created a group topic labeled #lostpet so all lost pet items will be easily searchable. We'll share reference links from pawboost.com, lostdogsillinois.org, findapaw.com, etc. locally in this group!
ADOPTION SUCCESS STORIES: We created a group topic labeled #adoptionsuccess so all local stories of pet adoption can be easily searchable! Please remember to tag the organization where you adopted from! Pictures highly recommended!
PETS LOOKING FOR A HOME: We created a group topic labeled #findmyforeverhome for all posts featuring a pet looking for their forever home! Organizations should limit posts to once a day to start, please.
🆕 Bolingbrook now has a 🐾 PET PANTRY! Located at the Bolingbrook Park District's Annerino Community Center (201 Recreation Dr, Bolingbrook) and open to all, no questions asked!
Congratulations and THANK YOU to the local girl scout (Izzy) from Girl Scout Troop 75229 for completing this project for her Silver Award!
The pantry is located outdoors - open anytime, any day!
We host virtual broadcasts the LAST Saturday of every month at 2:00pm Central. Virtual Adoption Awareness episodes will be broadcast live on various community Facebook pages with host Michael Carpanzano. The episodes (under 30 minutes) will also be recorded for later broadcast on other social channels and e-distribution platforms. If your organization is interested in signing up for an episode on an upcoming Saturday, please e-mail Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are building an interactive directory of animal shelters, humane societies, pet adoption agencies, etc. Please contact Michael Carpanzano if you'd like to add your organization to this list. For now, here is a list of local resources:
