Thank you for visiting my PAWS Chicago 5K Walk/Run fundraising page!

On June 3rd I will be walking with my PAWS alumni dogs Jonas, Cooper, Cookie, Thistle and King Louie in the PAWS Chicago's 18th annual Run For Their Lives event. This is my fifth year participating in this event and I couldn’t be more excited. I am committed to the mission of PAWS Chicago to build a No-Kill community - a place where pets are no longer destroyed because they are homeless. PAWS Chicago strives each year to increase the number of pets that are spayed, neutered, and rescued in efforts to drastically change the euthanasia rate that they currently face.

As most of you know, my dogs Maizie, Jonas (PAWS name Kernal - adopted in 2007), Cooper (PAWS name Superfly - adopted 2011), Cookie (fostered and adopted 2013), Thistle (PAWS name Happy Apple - fostered and adopted 2015), and King Louie (fostered and adopted 2016) are a huge part of my life. I'm so thankful for PAWS for making it possible for these wonderful fur-babies to be with me. I was so impressed with what an incredible job PAWS does that I started volunteering there in January 2013. Now I'm there volunteering every Saturday morning helping walk and feed dogs before the shelter opens for the day. When I leave after my shift the rewarding feeling I have is indescribable – and most of the time I leave without an new dog to add to my crew… ;)

To help PAWS with its mission, I decided to fund raise along with participating in the 5K with my PAWS alumni crew. My goal for this year is $3,000. It's going to be a hard goal to achieve but it will be more than worthwhile!!

Please consider supporting me and help enable PAWS Chicago to provide vital medical care, food, and shelter to the thousands of homeless pets rescued each year. PAWS Chicago receives no government funding and relies solely on people like you to help provide continued care and a second chance at life for homeless animals for years to come. All donations are tax deductible and are guaranteed to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside!

Thank you for any assistance you can provide. Your support is truly appreciated!!

Thank you,

Erica, Jonas, Cooper, Cookie, Thistle and King Louie
