Thank you for visiting my PAWS Chicago fundraising page!

In January of 2016, I adopted two beagles that had been picked up as homeless pups on the Northwest side of Chicago, sick from their time on the streets. After a stint in the pound, and through the caring and generosity of a friend, they were able to find a foster home. And after being nursed back to health, I was lucky enough to make them my dogs, and we've never looked back. They're the best, and I just couldn't imagine someone never giving them that second chance.

But they're among the lucky ones. Every year in Chicago, nearly 9,000 cats and dogs are euthanized because they simply don’t have a place to call home. As someone who loves animals, I firmly believe that we must do better. And that starts with raising money to provide support for these animals, and to give them the same chance that my beagles received.

That’s why I’ve decided to participate in and fundraise for PAWS Chicago’s 5K Walk/Run on June 4, 2017. I hope you will consider supporting this effort.

PAWS Chicago is dedicated to building No Kill communities – starting with a No Kill Chicago – where all healthy and treatable pets are saved. Since PAWS Chicago’s founding in 1997, the number of homeless animals euthanized per year in Chicago has dropped more than 80 percent. In 2016, PAWS Chicago found loving homes for more than 5,100 homeless pets. But there is more work to be done and your generosity is crucial to this effort.

Please consider supporting me by making a donation and helping PAWS Chicago provide vital medical care, food and shelter to thousands of homeless pets this year. PAWS receives no government funding and relies solely on people like you to help provide continued care for Chicago's homeless animals.

Your support will allow us to build a truly humane and compassionate community, one pet at a time. Please consider donating to my cause.

If you are feeling extra generous, please consider sharing my page with your network or check with your employer if they will match your donation to make the most out of your generosity.

Thank you for your support!
