Hey all!
Nick Meshes here!
Some of you, we talked to yesterday, and some we haven’t seen since before the pandemic. Miss you!

You may or may not know we just lost the fourth member of our dog pack - little Lulu Buggins. (Check out some photos below)
Alma, Chuppie, and I think about her constantly. But we must soldier on!

Registration has opened for the 2022 PAWS “Walk/Run for Their Lives” 5K on September 10th. This is a special event for us because
- Lulu and Chuppie are rescues from the PAWS Chicago shelter
- Alma and I have been going for 20 years, all the way back to early Honey dog days in Bolingbrook
- It’s held annually at Montrose Harbor, where we live, and a major reason why we live here in our little shoebox in the sky.

If you can make it, we’d love for you to join our group!
If you can’t make it, consider donating for Lulu, for the dogs and cats that need saving in Chicago, or for your own personal reasons.
If you can’t make it and you can’t join, no worries!
Know you are loved!


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 and fundraise for PAWS Chicago’s 5K Walk/Run For Their Lives on Saturday, September 10, 2022.

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.  Entering its 25th year in 2022, 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. Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest independent evaluator, has rated PAWS Chicago at its highest 4-star ranking for 19 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!
