Take a look at Pierre, a 2-year-old pit bull mix, and his trainer, Johnnie. Let’s help Pierre find his forever home! Pierre has come a long way from his days at @chicagoanimalcare . Since joining Tails of Redemption, Pierre has mastered the commands of sit, stay, down, paw, speak, and roll over. Pierre may be big, but so is his heart. He loves to cuddle and have his belly rubbed. He is the perfect couch companion.

For more information about Pierre, please contact [email protected]

We want to give a shoutout to K9 Zilly and K9 Ranger on Dog Therapy Appreciation Day. Ranger and Zilly have been providing comfort to many since 2019 as part of the Cook County Sheriff’s Office Therapy Dog Program. Both are graduates of the Broward County, Florida Sheriff’s Office therapy dog training program. The impact these dogs have had on Sheriff’s Office staff and members of the public is nothing short of incredible. We are so grateful for Zilly and Ranger.

Happy National Pet Parents Day! Special shoutout to all our Tails of Redemption families.

“Jaxx has been an amazing addition to my family! He went from a dog that was very particular about who could touch him to a dog that is excited to meet everyone now! I couldn't have asked for a better companion. The love he has for my kids is really something to see, and it was an almost immediate bond with them. The only complaint I have is that he is definitely a tripping hazard in the house because he is glued to my leg wherever I go! I'm proud to say that Jaxx is a product of Tails of Redemption, and all the hard work put in by staff and the detainee handlers” Franzo

It’s Animal Care and Control Appreciation Week. We wanted to take this time to show our appreciation to Chicago Animal Care and Control CACC for their partnership since the inception of Tails of Redemption. Most of our dogs trained through this program come from CACC, which provides the supplies and vet care for the dogs while they are in our program. We are thankful for their support. #TailsOfRedemption #CACC

Today is National Pet Day. Show some extra love to your pet today. It’s also a good day to help a pet or a pet owner in need.

Landon was adopted from Tails of Redemption in October of 2019. He is estimated to be about 2 1/2 years old. His family says he’s a little “attention hog and ham.” He even gets jealous when his fur sibling Petey receives attention. But when their owner is away, Landon helps Petey by keeping him company. Landon has been a wonderful addition to this family!

On March 15 we had to say goodbye to our little warrior, K9 Mika, who passed away at the age of 11. K9 Mika joined the Sheriff’s Office at 16 weeks old and was the first puppy trained in our Canine Unit. She may have been small, but she had a big impact public safety. During her career, she helped to recover fi****ms used in homicides and other crimes and recovered millions of dollars’ worth of narcotics. To Mika’s partner, Deputy Goulos, we share your grief on the loss of your partner.

“Jowly is doing so well. He is a big loving puppy. We are so happy to be his family. He is loved by all who meet him. I have brought him to work to meet some coworkers and they all loved him and said he was such a great dog. He can be lazy when he wants too, but that is fine with us.” #TailsOfRedemption #ShelterDogs #adopt #secondchances #love #CCDOC #CookCountyJail #RescueDogs #CACC

“When Bitsy entered the Tails of Redemption Program, it was love at first sight,” said Cook County Sheriff’s Corrections Officer Kim Vargas. “I filled out adoption paperwork and on Nov 14, 2018 Bitsy became part of my family. I have 4 children, and they welcomed her with open arms. I still remember the day I brought Bitsy home. I opened my front door and on the other side waiting were all 5 of my cats! They adapted so well together. She went from living in a shelter to a loving home, being adored by my children, myself, my 5 cats and my other dog Kaden. We are so blessed to have found Bitsy Marie Vargas.”

This is a day to combat the number one cause of death of companion animals-euthanasia due to overpopulation. #WorldSpayDay #TailsOfRedemption #CookCountyJail #RescueDogs

A little laughter to lighten up our day
what is the costt and do you have mid size dogs also?
This is a magnificent program...and I couldn't be more grateful for the generous acts of diligence and kindness of these gentlemen. I'd enroll my Pika in for obedience training with them. God bless these men, their families and their futures.
