A Statewide Pet Adoption Event on Veteran’s Day
CHICAGO—Today at PAWS Chicago, Comptroller Mendoza announced her “Pets for Vets” all-day, statewide pet adoption event to be held on Veteran’s Day, Saturday, November 11th, 2017. On this day, any veteran that walks into one of the designated shelters around the state and adopts a cat and/or dog will have the adoption fee waived thanks to the generosity of the participating sponsors.
CHICAGO— This is a good day for taxpayers. We are pleased to see Governor Rauner has listened to the many voices of Illinois residents and businesses urging him to issue bonds as the General Assembly authorized. This news will come as a relief to businesses around Illinois owed money by the state.
