Unless you've been in hiding you have probably heard about this new respiratory illness popping up in dogs all over the country.
Our friends at Scout Veterinary Care shared with us what they know.
We also found heard on NPR (linked below) it seems respiratory things pop up in dogs during especially high travel times of year and we should remain calm. We know our babies best; keep an eye on them and advocate for their health if needed (though we hope no one in our community has to deal with this mysterious illness).
Here is what Scout shared with us:
I hope you are all doing well! I wanted to reach out to you as our faithful supporters to share some updates on our organization as well as one of the organizations we have enjoyed supporting over the years.
RDMOC was created in 2017 and our mission has always been to do good for animals while also having fun. COVID obviously put a serious damper on all the things we were doing and events we were hosting to help build an animal-loving community and raise awareness for our local rescue organizations. However, there’s more to why we haven’t resumed our full calendar of events than just the pandemic.

The year 2021 was another tumultuous year for our community. With the rollercoaster of COVID-19 guidelines affecting the Chicagoland area in many different ways, we weren't able to get back into our usual swing of in-person events the way that we all had hoped. However, you pushed through and helped us do some amazing work!
We loved seeing you at our two Mini Photoshoot sessions. We got together to decorate wreaths. We voted online for our favorite decorated holiday pups. We took a Canine Cruise along the Chicago River. We enjoyed some great weather (and great drinks) with our Yappy Hours. We sold quirky shirts and warm hats. We found some great new local business partners and gave away lots of cool stuff. What a year!
There's no way to know what 2022 will bring. But we are hopeful that, at the very least, it brings peace, safety, and good health to you and your loved ones (both humans and fur-babies alike). We are taking things slowly but are cautiously optimistic that we can safely bring back some events this spring and summer. Stay tuned.
Thank you for all you do to continue to support this dog-crazy community of ours! Here's to 2022!
"There are so many ways we can help animals, one of the most impactful ways is by teaching younger generations how to be compassionate to them. I wanted to take this opportunity to share a special project at work. I joined Hinsdale Humane Society in January of this year as the Shelter Director and, excitingly, was promoted in July to overseeing our community programs, which includes our Humane Education Program. Lauren, its manager, came to me on September 1st asking if we could revamp Noah's Nook. These types of projects are always exciting to me so I looked forward to this moment. Here is an awesome opportunity to help children learn how to be better humans - starting with animals. We are looking to fundraise $500 to purchase the items listed in our wish list."
