 The PAWS Chicago 5K is our most attended annual event, as well as the largest dog-friendly event in Chicago!  Our sponsors help us offset costs for our event by donating dollars, goods and services, so that more funds raised can go towards saving the lives of homeless animals.  We couldn't do this event without them!  In addition to supporting a lifesaving cause, sponsors love the PAWS 5K because it offers a unique and meaningful way to connect with fellow animal lovers. 

The PAWS Chicago 5K is also the ONLY PAWS event where sponsors are allowed direct marketing opportunities so this is a wonderful opportunity to have direct access PAWS supporters!  Sponsorship is closed for 2023 but to be included on our contact list for 2024, please email us at
