lindsaymeow By the looks of Rocco's flat feet when he came into the shelter, my guess is that tonight is his first night sleeping on a comfortable bed. Enjoy buddy, your life should be much better now. #adoptdontshop 14h

lindsaymeow Solo had a blast meeting people and dogs at today's CACC event. She is available for adoption now. A gentle and sweet personality who just loves attention and meeting pups of all sizes and shapes. She will be at the @doubledoor event next week unless someone comes and scoops her up first! #adoptdontshop 4d

lindsaymeow I am sick to my stomach tonight over learning of the loss of one of my best shelter friends, Lil Kim. I am sorry I didn't get you out in time lil girl. You were so special and deserved a long life of happiness and love. I'm feeling so much guilt that when I saw you Monday night that I was only able to say hi and not able to spend time with you. Had I known that would be the last time I saw you, I would have taken you with me too. You deserved better. I hope you know you were loved and I hope my furry friends who have passed are greeting you with open arms. #adoptdontshop 5d

lindsaymeow Dragonfly [A125461] is just a tiny little thing, you could fit her in your pocket! She comes equipped with adorable puppy eyes, a luxurious chocolate coat, and all the snuggles one could possibly need. Dragonfly is part of @safehumanechicago's manners classes where she is an expert at sit, down, watch me, army crawl, down-stay, sit-stay, leave it... And is practically acing the roll over command. She is in need of a foster and rescue. Located at the Chicago ACC. #CACC #adoptdontshop #ineedahome #rescueme #fosterme #mustlovedogs 5d

lindsaymeow I generally try and focus on the positives in animal rescue, but some days are harder than others. A fellow volunteer, Andrew, introduced me to this sweet boy, Joker. The happiest dude to come out of his crate and interact with both people and other dogs. Super playful and loving. When I would put him back in his crate, he would even be happy about that. It kills me today to know he didn't make it out of the shelter. I've been picturing him excited and smiling as he came out of his crate last night thinking it was time to play. I'm sorry that I didn't do more for you buddy. Know you were loved and I hope that now you're living happily and peacefully. Rest in peace, Joker. #adoptdontshop 5d

lindsaymeow **URGENT** Lil Kim's time at the shelter is expiring. She is in desperate need of a foster and rescue. She came in completely neglected, emaciated and with nails so long they were curling and splitting. She is a gentle little low rider with a sweet soul, good manners, and just wants to be someone's lap doggie. She is full of hugs and kisses, knows sit and hold, is treat motivated, and snorts! Kimmy did well on leash tests and was tested for playgroup, but isn't really into contact players. A mellow partner would be best for her. She also didn't seem to mind the meowers! A real lover right here people. Come one, come all and meet our Lil Kim. Located at the Chicago ACC. #rescueme #chicago #mustlovedogs #chipits #loveabull #cacc 6d

lindsaymeow Moo was surrendered by her previous owners. Reason: "moving." This is one of the most common reasons animals end up at the shelter. I don't want to use this opportunity to bash, I don't know every individual circumstance. However, I would like to encourage those who add a furry friend to their family to do just that, treat them as one of your own- not as property. There's ways to transport animals to your new location, plenty of animal-friendly housing, and there's also other options to look into before dumping a pet at a shelter where there is high probability of your family member not making it out alive. If you ever find yourself in a position where you feel there are no other option, please ask for help- there's plenty of people who are willing and able to do what they can to help save your furry family member. Moo is a wonderful, sweet, easy to handle, and loving girl. I'm lucky to know her. #adoptdontshop #shelterpups #moomoogram 1w

  •   jayciemariotti You said it so much better than I could - nothing angers me more than people that look at pets as temporary or able to be discarded. I am so grateful for people like you! 1w

  •   minimeeow Awe she seems so sweet! I absolutely hate seeing that happen. Honestly, people are just idiots... This would happen at the humane society i worked at all the time. 1w
