Wicker Park Animal Rescue opens retail store
CHICAGO – One of Chicago’s biggest animal rescues is betting on a new venture, with a new retail store taking its first weekend of activity.
“One tail at a time”Offers gifts and animals just west of the Kennedy Freeway along Ashland Avenue in Wicker Park.
Tortie and Co. promotes itself as the retail space for animal rescue.
“The store carries products from small business owners and manufacturers, as well as items from us. 100 percent of the proceeds go to the rescue to help us save more dogs, cats and rabbits, ”said Heather Owen of Tortie and Co.
Heather Owen founded One Tail in 2008 and made the rescue one of the largest in the region.
A Bucktown dog adoption center and medical facility were added during this time, with the store being the latest addition.
Cards, candles, and cats in need of a home are all available.
“We want to make sure everyone can come in and interact with our cats because they are so sweet, but we also need to generate more funds so that we can save more cats,” Owen said.
The store is open Thursday and Friday afternoons and evenings, as well as every weekend from 11 a.m.
