Cook County Sheriff Asks for Public’s Help in Adoption of Two Very Good Dogs
Posted on December 6th, 2018
Two dogs that recently completed the Sheriff’s Tails of Redemption program at the Cook County Jail, are still looking for a forever home, Sheriff Dart announced today.
Gilmore and Rochelle graduated from Tails of Redemption, in which the Sheriff’s Office partnered with Chicago Animal Care and Control to bring shelter dogs into the jail to live with and be trained by detainees. As part of the program, each dog was house trained and taught basic commands such as sit, stay, down and crate.
Gilmore and Rochelle’s impressive results can be viewed in this video that the Sheriff’s Office released today
The Sheriff’s Office would like to find both of these dogs homes for the holidays. If anyone is interested in adopting and/or meeting either Gilmore or Rochelle, please call 312-603-4242 to set up an appointment, which are available weekdays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
