This holiday season the Chicago Bar Association is working to make the lives of Chicago-area shelter animals a little brighter by sponsoring a drive to collect much-needed supplies to help feed and comfort animals confined to shelters. 

The CBA’s Animal Law Committee is asking members and the public to remember the plight of shelter animals by donating food, supplies and toys for the benefit of Chicago animal shelters and their furry friends.

Tracy McGonigle, Chair of the Animal Law Committee, said donations being sought include unopened pet food and treats and supplies such as blankets, towels, toys, collars and leashes. “There are so many shelter animals who won’t be waking up in a loving home on Christmas morning.  Any donation, big or small, will provide much needed support,” said McGonigle.

Donations can be dropped off or messengered to the Chicago Bar Association at 321 S. Plymouth Court in Chicago.
