My company, Rover-Time Dog Walking & Pet Sitting, has proudly joined the Small Business Capital Campaign Committee to help raise funds and awareness for One Tail at a Time’s ISO Center.

ISO is short for Isolation. The Center will be used to house dogs that come from local shelters (Chicago Animal Care & Control and Animal Welfare League Wabash) that have endemic contagious shelter diseases requiring animals to be quarantined once rescued. The property is centrally located in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood at 3567 W Dickens and was purchased by One Tail at a Time with a re-zoning contingency. Their hearing is scheduled for late August, during which they expect to be approved to run an animal care facility.

The organization has a goal to raise $350,000 and Rover-Time would like to raise at least $2,500 for One Tail at a Time to sponsor one single kennel in the property. The rest of the money raised by Major Gifts, Corporate Donations, OTAT Family, and fellow Small Businesses will be spent on gutting and rehabbing the facility. And HVAC system will need to be added, there’s asbestos to remove, foundation work is necessary, 15 kennels will be added, and plumbing, electric, masonry improvements will need to be completed before OTAT can move in.

Rover-Time Dog Walking & Pet Sitting, sincerely believes in the transformative work OTAT does day in and day out because we personally work with so many animals placed in their forever homes by OTAT.

If I haven't said it directly to you, I'll remind you now: my very best friend in this world is my dog.

Chauncey was a mill dog from Kentucky, who was rescued, placed in a kill shelter and he was “on the list” to be euthanized. Thanks to a rescue very similar to OTAT, he was transferred to Illinois and placed in foster care. He was adopted for nine months, and then returned after the first adopter decided he wasn't the right fit for their home. After that, he lived for another several months with the same foster family that originally took him in. These wonderful pet people kept him alive so he could one day meet me.

The day I became Chauncey’s person was important, in very sweet and simple way. And I take it seriously, with fierce loyalty because he deserves nothing less. I am grateful for the happiness he brings our entire family and am asking you today to please consider giving to bring Chicago one step closer to “No Kill”. Help save dogs, great ones, like mine.

Thank you. ♥
