Bark in the Park 2018

Advanced Group

Last June, Advanced Resources & Wunderland went to the Anti-Cruelty Society to do a craft kit party, making dog toys and cat toys for our furry four-legged friends there. 

This year, we hope to involve all of Advanced Group and continue our work with Anti-Cruelty Society and will set up another volunteer day at ACS. We are expanding our involvement by having an Advanced Group team participate in the annual Bark in the Park 5k walk fundraiser. Please feel free to invite family and friends, and of course bring your favorite canine friends! You do not need to have a dog in order to participate-- just come, hang out with us and support Anti-Cruelty Society and their mission of helping pets and educating people.

Looking forward to seeing all of you there!


In 1899, Rose Fay Thomas, wife of Chicago Symphony Orchestra founder Theodore Thomas, established The Anti-Cruelty Society and forever changed the landscape of animal welfare throughout the Chicago region. Since that time, the Society has endured as Chicago's oldest and largest open admission animal welfare organization, one that provides a wide breadth of programs that save the lives of thousands of animals each year. A certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and the recipient of a four-star Charity Navigator rating, The Anti-Cruelty Society’s mission is to build a community of caring by helping pets and educating people. 

Today, The Anti-Cruelty Society remains the oldest and the largest open admission animal welfare organization in Chicago. All animals are welcome at the Society every day of the year. We never turn an animal away from our doors. Ever.  And once an animal is admitted, they can stay as long as it takes to find their forever home.

However, the care that we provide to animals in need is only possible through the friendship and support of our community. And by choosing to run with Team Anti-Cruelty, you are making a difference to each and every one of the animals that comes to us in search of hope, comfort, and healing.
