Chicago area: School Bus Crashes into Animal Shelter

This is a special section for cats needing new homes and for inspiring stories of cats that have found their furever home through Catster or through the love and energy of rescuers. This is also the place to discuss shelters, rescue organizations, rescue strategies, issues, solutions, etc. and how we can all help in this critical endeavor. Remember that we are all here for the love of cat! If you are posting about a cat that needs a new home, please put your location in the topic of your thread so those close by can find you!

Update: 75 dogs rescued from kill shelters in downstate Illinois are scheduled to arrive at Wright-Way this Friday. With no shelter to house them, Wright-Way will be holding a special adoption event this weekend to try to find them all homes.

The event will be located in a tent at the Wright-Way Rescue Adoption Center parking lot at 7136 W Touhy Ave in Niles, IL. They will be holding adoptions this weekend during the following times:
