*Targeted ZIP Codes

Our services are targeted to make the most impact at reducing pet overpopulation. We analyze data every year to determine:

iii) The neighborhoods in Chicago where more stray dogs and cats are on the streets

iv) The neighborhoods where animals who come into Animal Care & Control (the city pound) originate

This data determines our Targeted ZIP Codes—the .areas most in need of spay/neuter to control pet overpopulation. Targeted ZIP Codes are currently 60609, 60617, 60619, 60620, 60621, 60628, 60629, 60636, 60639 and 60651.
