Marshall Gerstein Gives: The Anti-Cruelty Society
December marks the season of giving and good cheer, but for pets experiencing cruelty or homelessness or humans who need assistance with basic pet care or education, it can be the dark days of winter. This month, Marshall Gerstein Gives (MG2) partnered with The Anti-Cruelty Society to support its mission to build a community of caring by helping pets and educating people.
With a goal of finding a home for every adoptable companion animal in need while promoting responsible pet ownership and preventing cruelty, abuse and neglect, The Society offers a variety of programs including cat and dog adoptions, spay/neuter clinic, humane education, cruelty investigation and rescue, free behavior helpline, three rehabilitation and treatment centers, pet loss and grief group sessions, pet visitation program, a foster program, pet first aid and CPR classes, and other pet-related workshops.
Founded in 1899, The Society is Chicago’s oldest and largest, private, open-admission, unlimited stay humane society. Serving more than 50,000 pets and their humans each year, The Society cares for any animal for any reason.
