Chicago Marathon 2019!

Meredith Phillips

Hey guys!

I'm back again this year to run the Chicago Marathon with Team PAWS Chicago and I couldn't be more excited. I had so much fun throughout the entire year last year during the training process, the fundraising process, and of course the day of the race!

My goal is a bit more personal this year, as I got to witness firsthand the good that TeamPAWS Chicago does. I'd like to raise a bit more for the animals, and if you'd like more information about where your money goes, take a look below:

-$7 pays for antibiotics for a puppy with kennel cough for one week

-$15 provides a microchip to a dog or cat, ensuring they will not be homeless again

-$25 covers the laundering of toys, towels, and pet beds for one day (30+ loads per day!)

-$32 stocks litter in "Kitty City" for one day

-$53 covers the daily cost of critical veterinary care for pets with life-threatening diseases

-$65 pays for an X-ray of a sick or injured pet

-$75 provides intravenous fluids for a sick pet for one week

-$86 sponsors a spay/neuter surgery

-$150 fuels a transport vehicle aiding in animal rescue

-$175 supports the medical treatments needed to cure an upper respiratory infection

and more!

***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.***
