We are very excited to announce the launch of our new Round Up for Charity feature on our site, which gives you the option to round up your order total and donate the difference to a wonderful program: the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program - CRISP. If your order total is a whole number, you will still have the option to donate. You can also donate to this program directly at crispchicago.com/donate. Here's a little more about CRISP:
For most people, pets are part of the family and giving them up is unimaginable. Unfortunately, many people are faced with difficult circumstances, such as landlord disputes or high medical costs, where they feel that they have no other option but to take their pet to animal control. Once admitted, pets are confined, exposed to disease, and in some cases may be euthanized. Luckily, CRISP is there to help pet owners find a better solution.
Every week, CRISP volunteers are on site at animal control to assist pet owners in need. CRISP provides free services that enable pet owners to keep their pets, rather than surrendering them to animal control. If keeping a pet with the owner is not an option, CRISP immediately begins networking with local rescue organizations. In many cases, the pet is placed with a rescue and will bypass animal control completely.
By supporting CRISP, you can help minimize the number of pets in shelters and help families with pets stay together.
