Isis, the Shepard/terrier mix in East Garfield Park whose owners were charged with animal cruelty after casting her off and leaving her to be beaten by neighborhood kids, will be available for adoption soon; Animal Care and Control (2741 South Western) will be accepting applications this Saturday from noon to 6pm. CACC also has many wonderful animals available for adoption as well; come by and get your next pet!
