I can’t believe I ate that whole bag of Temptations.

You know how they say the internet is run on cute kitten pictures? Well, here’s your proof right here.

Is it time for the Kitten Bowl?

Touchdown! Wooooo!

Sable update!

Sable is doing great! She loves the boys in her foster family, has no problem with the cats, and has even made a few new friends in the neighborhood. She also loves to sleep and is a bit of a bed hog, but who is going to say no to that face? She still has some issues with leash aggression, but she’s working on that with the help of her foster family.

Meet Salt and Pepper!

Adorable 5 year olds Salt (A30485078) and Pepper (A30485085) have settled in to their new foster home and immediately made themselves right at home.

Both of these little girls are friendly and affectionate and are getting along very well with their new male kitty housemates without conflict. While Pepper runs around and plays like a kitten, Salt is a little more reserved, preferring to sit next to you on the couch instead. They seem to love each other very much, with one never too far behind the other.

Both girls have super soft bunny fur, the tiniest little meows, enjoy pets and head scratches, and have been using the litter box without issue. Salt is a bit of a social eater right now but is eating both wet and dry food and really LOVES treats.

Stay tuned to see how these little girls progress over the next few weeks!

Here’s Scarlet!

Just look at this precious face!   Scarlet is waiting in foster care waiting for her permanent home.IMG_2103

This petite sweetie is almost 2 years old, and can be a little timid when you first meet her.  She warms up quickly and loves to stay very close by.


Playful and curious,  she will steal your heart…..(seriously, so cute)


She dreams about her furever home.

Party of Five Update!

Rudy and Quincy

Woot woot!  Rudy & Quincy have reached the TWO POUND mile marker!

This means that these two handsome guys are officially on the market for their forever homes!

How can you tell these guys apart (you may be asking yourself)? Well, Quincy has fine, silky, having-a-bad-hair-day fur, and Rudy’s fur feels like a thick, excellent quality wool rug. 🙂

The Party of Five is made up of five of the best-looking kittens in Chicago – JayTee, Rudy, Oliver, Adele, and Quincy.

And here you can enjoy some cuteness overload (though we think that there is no such thing as too much cute when it comes to kittens):

Carly is one of our team of Holiday Heroes who opened her home to an adoptable pup this year. And good news–Snickers may have already found his forever home! Will you help us give even more adorable animals a place to stay this holiday season?

Our magnificent Holiday Heroes are part of the Adoption Ambassadors program designed to give adoptable dogs and cats a taste of home life for 4 weeks during the holidays. By fostering, you get to learn a lot more about the pet’s personality away from the shelter. This kind of information is invaluable to potential adopters. As a Holiday Hero, you get to be involved in actively recruiting potential adopters too!

The Anti-Cruelty Society will provide all training, licensing and basic supplies–all you need to do is provide a warm and loving home for a shelter pet! Here’s how to get started:

  1. Complete a foster program application and email it to us at foster@anticruelty.org
  2. Schedule your Foster Orientation
  3. Choose your foster animal! Pick a pet who is currently available for adoption in our Adoptable Cats or Adoptable Dogs galleries.

The Anti-Cruelty Society will provide you with medical, behavioral and marketing support along the way. We’ll teach you pet care basics, how to reinforce good behaviors and curb bad manners, how to keep your foster healthy and what to do to recruit their adopter. Help us send animals home for the holidays by becoming an Adoption Ambassador for the season!

If you have any questions or would like more information, feel free to email us!
