Welcome Supporters!

Homeless pets have always had a special place in my heart, especially after bringing home our wonderful dog Cora, a beautiful Chesapeake Bay Retriever who we fell in love with right from the start. Sadly, Cora got sick with autoimmune thrombocytopenia, (ITP; a condition that destroys her platelets), chronic pancreatitis, Vitamin B12 and iron deficiency anemia, and a stomach enteropathy we never had a chance to get a firm diagnosis on. She aspirated during a routine procedure and within hours was septic with aspiration pneumonia she was unable to fight because of the strong meds she was on and we were forced to say goodbye after only 1.5 years. Our hearts are still broken but we know that she was STILL in a better place with us than in the cold, loud, concrete jail where she and other homeless animals are forced to stay because they have nowhere else to go. Some of these animals are sick and some are injured... but ALL are looking for a warm and loving place to call home and are in need of financial help until that happens, which is where WE come in to help!

PAWS Chicago is dedicated to building No Kill communities – starting with a No Kill Chicago – where all healthy and treatable pets are saved. Since PAWS Chicago’s founding in 1997, the number of homeless animals euthanized per year in Chicago has dropped more than 80 percent. In 2016, PAWS Chicago found loving homes for more than 5,100 homeless pets, but here 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.**

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.

Speaking on behalf of the homeless pets your donation would help, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your support!
