Thank you for visiting my PAWS Chicago 5K Walk/Run For Their Lives fundraising page!
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 cannot let this continue. That’s why I’ve decided to participate in and fundraise for PAWS Chicago’s 5K Walk/Run For Their Lives on Sunday, May 31, 2020.
I hope you will consider supporting this effort by donating today.
PAWS Chicago (Pets Are Worth Saving) is a national model in No Kill animal sheltering, committed to bringing an end to the killing of homeless cats and dogs. As Chicagoland’s largest No Kill shelter, and one of the largest in the nation, PAWS has helped to reduce the number of homeless pets killed in the city by 91% since its founding in 1997. In just 20 years, PAWS Chicago has grown from a grassroots organization to a national leader in the No Kill movement, guiding other communities in how to dramatically reduce the euthanasia of homeless cats and dogs.
In 2018, PAWS Chicago found homes for 5,591 dogs and cats through its Lincoln Park and Highland Park Adoption Centers.
Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest independent evaluator, has rated PAWS Chicago at its highest 4-star ranking for 17 consecutive years—an accomplishment that less than 1% of the charities in the nation have reached.
PAWS receives no government funding and relies solely on people like you to help provide continued care for Chicago's homeless animals.
Please donate to my cause today – Chicago’s homeless pets are depending on you! 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!
