Good Morning Mr. Gregg,

Chicago Animal Care & Control does not have an "Exotic Pet In-Take and Placement Program". Therefore CACC does not have any responsive records to provide for your request.

Thank you,

Chicago Animal Care & Control

From: Forest Gregg

This 2011 Mayoral Transition Report mentions the "Exotic Pet In-Take and Placement Program" as a program of the Commission on Animal Care and Control (p. 181, https://www.cityofchicago.org/content/dam/city/narr/Transition%20Reports/TransitionReport.pdf)

Was the program discontinued?

From: Chicago Animal Care and Control Performance


in response to your FOIA request dated on 2/14/18, please be advised that Chicago Animal Care and Control does not have an Exotic Pet Intake & Placement Program therefore CACC does not have such records in our database.

However, we do take various animals including few deemed exotics and we transfer them out .

If you could be more specific as far it is breed, type .... we would be delighted to provide you with any and all available records.

Best regards.
