CHICAGO — The Chicago Animal Care and Control shelter, 2741 S. Western Ave., will host a grand re-opening Saturday to celebrate the completion of its multimillion-dollar renovation.
The shelter houses more than 500 animals in need of sheltering and provides adoption and animal services.
The renovation was funded in part by a $1 million donation from Chicago Wolves owner Donald Levin. The project included new kennels, a better ventilation system and more space and natural light for the animals.
During the celebration from 1-6 p.m. Saturday, adoption fees for dogs and cats will be waived.
Adopted animals will also receive spray or neuter services, vaccines, a microchip and city license along with a new collar, leash and ID tag.
