Welcome!

Katelyn Lilly

Everyone knows I've always been an animal lover (especially when it comes to cute little doggos!). With my current work situation, I'm not able to have a dog of my own, which is a major bummer. To fill this puppy void in my life, I decided to start volunteering at PAWS Chicago back in January 2016 (in addition to extra trips home for snuggles with our family golden doodle). Joining this dedicated group of staff members and volunteers elevated my love for animals and turned it into a passion.


In addition to volunteering on a weekly basis, I've taken the next step in supporting PAWS Chicago and their powerful mission. This July, I will be running the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon as part of TEAM PAWS. Each member of the team is responsible for raising a minimum of $650, which will directly support the Midwest’s largest No Kill shelter, PAWS Chicago.

These funds are used to help save thousands of homeless pets each year, treating and rehabilitating sick and injured animals and uniting them with loving families. Funds are also used to support PAWS’ focus on prevention, providing nearly 18,000 low cost/free spay or neuter surgeries in low-income communities where most stray and unwanted animals originate. With no government funding, these homeless pets are dependent on the animal loving community and generous donors like yourself.

Here are some examples of how the funds you donate will be used to save lives at PAWS Chicago:

$15 covers the cost of a micro-chip to help reunite lost pets with their families
$25 funds daily laundering of all toys, towels and pet beds
$32 stocks our Kitty City Cat Wing with litter for one day
$35 gives the gift of cleaning supplies for one day
$65 covers the cost of X-rays for an injured dog or cat
$75 provides intravenous fluids for one sick dog or cat for one week
$86 sponsors a spay/neuter surgery to help prevent over pet population
$150 fuels our transport vehicles so we can rescue more animals from the city pound and neighboring shelters
$175 funds medication and care for an upper respiratory for one kitten or puppy
$250 cares for one healthy puppy or kitten from arrival through adoption
$400 funds the treatment of Ring worm
$600 stocks our center with medication
$800 funds the treatment of Heartworm
$1,200 funds critical care to an animal with life-threatening injuries


Please help me in contributing towards making this goal a reality for the homeless pets at PAWS Chicago. To learn more about PAWS Chicago and their life-saving work, please visit http://www.pawschicago.org/
