The Animal Care League has a lot to celebrate. But this weekend, it will host the Annual Baby Shower to raise funds and supplies for what the organization says it has been doing for 40 years: saving lives.
It took just five days for the Animal Care League in Oak Park to find homes for a litter of pets. Fifteen dogs, four cats, and one bunny were part of the organization's most recent adoption project in collaboration with the Petco Foundation, the Tails Humane Society, and an animal adoption shelter in rural Oklahoma.
