I Like Big Mutts and I Cannot Lie

Hi Friends, Family, & Supporters—

I am so excited to be running the 2019 Chicago Marathon on behalf of PAWS Chicago! Animal rescue is a cause that has always been near to my heart, especially after adopting my three-legged pup, Atlas, in 2017. After a rough first three years of life, Atlas was able to find his forever home with me through loving foster parents and humane organizations like PAWS.

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 give pets just like my sweet boy Atlas a second chance. 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.

If you are feeling extra generous, please feel free to share 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 so much for your support!

Love Always,
