Chicago’s Animal Care and Control facility is getting an $8.2 million facelift that could dramatically improve the much-maligned quality of care for dogs and cats.
The long-awaited overhaul of the David R. Lee Animal Center, 2741 S. Western, will be paid for, in part, by a $2 million donation from the family foundation created by the co-founder and board chairman of the Chicago Wolves hockey team.
