A Place to Bark charity event at salt cave
Timeless Spa & Salt Cave in Naperville will open Sunday to benefit A Place To Bark, a no-kill foster and adoption rescue facility dedicated to the welfare of animals.
A Place To Bark is a new shelter concept, offering a temporary home or a foster facility that provides quarantine, full vet care, rehab and training to help animals further in the adoption process.
APTB mainly works with animal control agencies, rescuing animals from high-kill shelters and fostering them until they are healthy. They are then placed for adoption through Dog Patch in Naperville and West Suburban Humane Society in Downers Grove. APTB covers all costs for the medical care of the animals. All animals rescued are spay or neutered.
APTB received the Humanitarian of the Year award from the Anti-Cruelty Society this year.
