Jen and Foz Run to Save Lives!

Jen Brennan

Jen Brennan

Welcome sweet friends!

While I may not know exactly what 2021 has in store, I do know I will be running something and fundraising for Team PAWS. As per usual, Foz will continue to be the best training partner anyone could ask for 🐾

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 and performed 16,750 spay and neuter surgeries through its Lurie Clinic and GusMobile Spay/Neuter Van. These two medical resources give PAWS Chicago the ability to provide subsidized spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations and humane education to under-served families and neighborhoods that need the most help in controlling pet population.

But there is more work to be done and your generosity is crucial to this effort. Please consider supporting me by making a donation and helping PAWS Chicago provide vital medical care, food and shelter to thousands of homeless pets this year. PAWS receives no government funding and relies solely on people like you to help provide continued care for Chicago's homeless animals.

Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest independent evaluator, has rated PAWS Chicago at its highest 4-star ranking for 18 consecutive years—an accomplishment that less than 1% of the charities in the nation have reached.

Your support will allow us to build a truly humane and compassionate community, one pet at a time. Please consider donating to my cause. 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!
