We give a bark about helping homeless Chicago dogs. We know you do, too. That's why we are working hard to help One Tail at a Time fund-raise to pay for the mortgage and renovations for their new Isolation Center.  Real Dog Moms of Chicago has joined their small biz committee and has come up with a goal of raising $10,000 by the end of the year. Join us in this goal. Dads welcome to join, too!

What’s an 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.

Where will it be?

The Property is a commercial building located at 3567 W Dickens Chicago IL 60647.

How much does OTAT need to raise?

The Goal is $350,000 raised.

What’s the timeline?

Closing will take place approximately Sept 14th. We will break ground soon after and the expected timeline for open is December 2018.

What will happen inside the building?

The property will not be open to the public, rather it will be a place for volunteers and fosters to care for sick and injured dogs prior to them becoming adoptable. The facility will house 20 dogs at a time in spacious large dog kennels and a wall of small dog kennels.
