HELLO BEAUTIFUL BEINGS! Thank you for visiting my PAWS Chicago 5K Walk/Run For Their Lives fundraising page!

I am super thrilled to be able to join PAWS to raise money for a cause that is so important to me, I changed careers over it! If you know me, animals mean the world to me, and especially those in need. Without rescues, fosters, sanctuaries and the people behind it, none of it would be possible. Those are people on the front lines fighting for animals to be recognized as individuals, to say EVERY LIVING BEING has a choice and deserves to live.

Two of my dogs, Molly and Tiny, are actually rescues from PAWS. Our other dog, Taco, is also a rescue. For Riley and I, they are our everything, our family, our "children." It us. And we wouldn't have it any other way (except maybe more and more rescues if we could!).

In the meantime, let's help raise money to continue efforts in animal rescue, and to perhaps allow space for others, like you and me, to have the opportunity to grow their family and rescue as well! Any donation would be greatly appreciated. A little bit more about rescuing and PAWS below...

Every year in Chicago, nearly 9,000 cats and dogs are euthanized because they simply don’t have a place to call home.

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.

If you are feeling extra generous, please consider sharing!
