Working Through Pet Loss
Apr 7 @ 6:30 pm – Apr 7 @ 8:00 pm

This open educational group is dedicated to working through the emotional rollercoaster that can occur when we lose a beloved pet. Whether it is sudden or long-time coming, the permanence of a pets death can take its toll on thoughts and emotions that are a natural part of the healing process.

 The group facilitator, Mark Bilkey, has over 15 years of experience in guiding individuals through the loss and transition process.

The support group meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the Month from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. There is no charge but pre-registration of at least three individuals is required. To register call (312) 644-8338 ext. 344 or e-mail education@anticruelty.org.

 You can now register on line!

 The programs will be held in our Education and Training Center. Enter at 169 W. Grand Avenue.

Free parking is available in The Anti-Cruelty Society parking garage. Enter from Wells Street ½ block south of Grand Avenue.

Bark in the Park
May 3 @ 9:00 am
Bark in the Park

Sunday, May 3 marks the Society’s 21st annual Bark in the Park – a 5K walk (for dogs and their human companions!) at Montrose Harbor followed by a celebration in the park. Bark in the Park is the Society’s single largest fundraising event of the year. Last year our sponsors and participants walked to raise over $150,000 in support of our mission. This important fundraiser was the first pet-friendly event held in the City of Chicago; and with more than 3,000 animal lovers, supporters, and walking enthusiasts attending, we anticipate this year being the best yet!

After the walk, participants will enjoy a celebration in the park complete with a canine agility course, product samples from small business sponsors, dog massages, dog tattoos, a pawdicure spa, Animal Intuitive Denise Zak, caricature artist, plus free snacks, souvenir photos, a 50/50 cash raffle, and much more!
