Mechanical Power is happy to help out our local Illinois community when we can, and we recently helped by making a donation to the Animal Welfare League located in Chicago Ridge, IL.
The Animal Welfare League
The Animal Welfare League is an animal shelter that has been in Chicago since its original shelter was founded in 1935, and they opened a second shelter in Chicago Ridge, IL in 1992. They provide much more than just shelter for animals, they provide care for homeless and needy animals, as well as low cost pet care and pet food distribution for pet owners with limited incomes. The Chicago Ridge, IL location also has rescue animals available for adoption. Most of the animals that come to the Animal Welfare League have been injured, neglected, or abused. Their dedicated staff helps these animals recover and gives them a chance for a better life through adoption.
How Mechanical Power in Illinois Helped
The Animal Welfare League does work that impacts thousands of animals in the Chicago area, but they need adequate supplies to do their work. They recently came very close to running out of food to feed the animals. At Mechanical Power, we started a charity drive and encouraged our employees to donate what they could to help the Animal Welfare League get some much needed supplies.
In the end, we were able to accumulate a large donation of food, kitty litter, litter boxes, and toys for the cats and dogs at the shelter. Our staff put together a big enough package to have a lasting impact on the operations of the Animal Welfare League. The staff of the shelter were very appreciative of the donation and overwhelmed by the amount of supplies they received. We even got written thank you notes from the employees, “Thank you so much, I was putting things away and could not get over how much was given. The cats will love the toys, litter pans, food and the dogs are already playing with their toys! The animals thank you and so do the kennel workers.”
Mechanical Power is proud to help the Animal Welfare League continue their amazing work. We would like to thank all members of our staff for their generosity and willingness to donate so much for this important cause.
