Naperville chihuahua Lily adopted on Easter

Easter Brings a New Beginning for Naperville Senior Chihuahua Named Lily

What started off as a very sad and all too common situation turned out to be a happy Easter ending. Ms. Lily the Chihuahua was given up at 10 years of age when her family decided they no longer had time for her. Fortunately for this sweet little girl, the Naperville Area Humane Society took her, giving her new mom and dad the chance to fall in love with her.

Ms. Lily was named for the Easter holiday she was adopted on, and she is now ready for the next phase of her life enjoying endless loving care and (hooray!) daily visits from her adoring nannies at Out-U-Go!

Big hugs to you Lily, Janice, and Darryl…we are so happy for you all!

Tallahassee Red Hills International Horse Trials adopt a dog weekend event

Meet Adoptable Tallahassee Pups at Red Hills Horse Trials!

Check out the wonderful adoptable pups our local animal rescue groups, including Big Dog Rescue, have available March 7-9 at the 2014 Red Hills Horse Trials. Enjoy the beautiful spring weather while getting to know some of the available pups that local rescue groups have lovingly fostered. Even if you are at maximum density in the dog department, this is a great opportunity to meet these groups, learn about volunteer programs, and donate! You can do this while enjoying a world-class horse show at the beautiful Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park! I ask you…does it get any better than this?

This is a leave-your-dog-at-home event so that adoptable dogs can strut their stuff without distraction…plus, it is best not to disturb horses and riders with a badly timed dog fit!

If you are interested in attending, visit Red Hills International Horse Trials.


Naperville’s Ms. Gretta In Search For Her Forever Human

Meet sweet 8-year-old Gretta who is ready and waiting for her forever home.

She’s a mellow, gentle girl in search of a quiet home where she can spend her golden years. She is very casual around most other dogs and gentle around cats as well.

She likes to spend her afternoons relaxing, but she also enjoys a nice stroll around the block every now and then. After all, she’s still a beagle, and her sniffer is far from being retired!

Find Gretta as well as many other incredible pups for adoption at Naperville Area Humane Society.

Out-U-Go! goes Hollywood?!?!?

Well…..maybe not Hollywood, but WGN Chicago is pretty close! πŸ™‚

Out-U-Go! Central’s General Manager (and former Oak Park Top Dog), Sara Lorenzo, will be representing Chicago Canine Rescue on WGN’s Adopt-A-Pet segment at approximately 11:10 AM Central Time on Friday, August 19. She will be highlighting Flora & Kitty, two super-cute pups that are looking for forever homes.

Flora would love a forever home!

Flora is quite the little social butterfly, and absolutely loves meeting new people. She is a 3-month old Australian Cattle Dog/Collie mix. This outgoing little lady has a lick and a tail wag for everyone, and also loves to run and play. Flora is being treated for a skin condition and is already on the road to recovery. She would make an excellent addition to any family.


This Kitty says "Woof!"

Kitty is an approximately 3 year old female border collie mix who came all the way from Chatsworth, Georgia. Like any Southern belle, Kitty is polite and demure, and has very nice manners. She is a bit timid sometimes, and is very sweet — she will crawl into your lap for some pats and scratches, and gives the most gentle little licks. Kitty is living in a foster home with her lab sister, and beagle mix brother. She gets along great with other dogs and loves to meet new people. Kitty is also currently being treated for heartworm disease. While it is extremely rare for there to be any lasting effects, she will need to be kept calm and quiet during her recovery.

Sara is a volunteer member of the Board of Directors of Chicago Canine Rescue, a local animal shelter that helps find homes for the most vulnerable in the city – the sick, injured and special needs dogs.

Set your DVR’s (or don’t……she is really, really nervous about being on TV!).
