On Thursday, June 20 from 5 – 9pm Downtown Oak Park's Thursday Night Out will be transformed into a birthday party in honor of Animal Care League's 40 years of helping homeless animals. The Animal Care League staff will be on Marion Street at Westgate to welcome friends, past adopters, and volunteers that want to join in the festivities. While promoted as a birthday celebration, the event is a way for ACL to thank the communitiy and its countless supporters that assist the shelter in its efforts to improve the welfare of animals in need. This combined commitment has resulted in ACL being able to save an estimated 40,000 animals since its inception.
The party will be family-friendly and visitors can expect food, fun, and "surprise" entertainment. There will also be a special information table for people interested in becoming foster families. Many of ACL's adoptable animals will be on hand for the festivities.
The Animal Care League is a non-profit corporation founded in 1973 under the organizational name of Village Humane Society. ACL's mission is to provide hope and homes for companion animals and assists more than 1000 animals each year. It is a limited admission shelter located in Oak Park. We help homeless cats, dogs and small animals by providing them food, shelter, medical attention and love until we can find them a loving home. As a not for profit 501©3 organization, we depend on the generosity of our communities to help us meet our goals of finding new homes for as many animals as possible.
