Rhino's Run

Hi Everyone!

I'm Alexandra and I am running the Chicago Marathon to raise money for PAWS Chicago. 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 my first year out of college, I decided to foster a sweet pup from PAWS Chicago. I was taking classes at night and thought that fostering a dog would be fun given my free time during the day. My roommate, Kate, was terrified of dogs and picked the one who "looked like it would be more scared of her than she was of it". While he started out timid and particularly scared of boxes, he quickly became my shadow and the glue to our apartment. Little did I know that this dog would bring so much love and joy into my life in such a short period of time. I very, very quickly turned into a foster fail and adopted Rhino 3 months later. Anyone who knows me knows how much he has changed my life for the better. The work that PAWS Chicago does is so crucial to bringing animals like Rhino the lives and love that they deserve.

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 - as they did for Rhino and many others since. 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.

Thank you so much for your support!!
