Run with Your Pitties Out

Millie Crotty

Millie Crotty

If you know me then you know Berlin. What you might not know is that I adopted her from a city shelter at a time when only 11% of the dogs made it out alive. Still today, 1.2 million dogs are euthanized every year, and a staggering 40% of those are pitbull-type dogs— dogs just like Berlin.
Berlin is the reason I started running— her energy needed an outlet, and so we became running buddies. Years later at ACCT Philly, where I adopted Berlin, I became a member of the running team, going to the shelter and taking high-energy dogs on much needed exercise breaks from the stressful shelter, dogs such as Jasmine (pictured above) a favorite running buddy of mine who tragically did not make it out of ACCT. This October I’ll be running my 5th marathon for Jasmine and dogs like her who need safe exit from shelters across the country. As a member of team PAWS Chicago, I’ll be supporting a shelter that is committed to making Chicago a No Kill City. An overwhelming majority of the dogs in Chicago shelters are pitbull-type dogs— good dogs like Berlin and Jasmine who deserve a chance. So I humbly invite you to support me and my #runwithyourpittiesout campaign. Thank you for your help and support, and for loving Berlin and dogs like her!

Welcome Supporters!

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 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.

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!
