The Chicago Community Pet Coalition knows that families and pets are happiest when they can stay together. After seeing so many heart-wrenching situations where families can’t afford to care for their beloved pet, and therefore have to give them up to shelters, ALIVE Rescue and One Tail at a Time decided to team up to prevent any further heartbreak from occurring. In March of 2014, they formed the Community Pet Coalition (CPC) to keep animals healthy, happy and in the homes they love.
CCPC was featured in the August 2014 edition of Tails Magazine. Read more about the organization, mission, and what makes the organizers tick.
One Tail at a Time, is a no-kill, 501(c)3 all-breed dog rescue that serves to lower euthanasia rates in the greater Chicagoland area and provide education on the humane treatment of companion animals.
The rescue concentrates its efforts on dogs that are in danger of being euthanized, or those that are physically and/or mentally deteriorating in a shelter environment, works to rehabilitate them, and then matches each dog with a permanent home. Focused on keeping pets as a part of our family, One Tail at a Time offers fosters and adopters continued support and education on how best to keep dogs happy, healthy and bonded for life.
