Friends Who Care

The Anti-Cruelty Society’s Friends Who Care program provides pet care kits to senior citizens in need. Whether a cat, dog, bird, turtle, or other pet, we’re ensuring that seniors have the provisions necessary to continue caring for their animals. Working alongside agencies like Chicago’s Department on Aging, these monthly deliveries are providing for the pets of people in our community who need it most. Thanks to this unique program we’re making sure senior citizens and their animal companions can stay friends for life. Interested in learning more? Email us at education@anticruelty.org for enrollment details.

This program is made possible, in part, by the generosity of the Caerus Foundation.
