Please help PAWS make Chicago no-kill!

Dear Friend,

If you are on this page, I am sure you know how passionate I am about helping animals and in particular homeless pets.

This year I am running my third race for PAWS Chicago, a truly incredible organization. I am a proud parent to not one but two dogs -- Sylvia and Parker -- who PAWS rescued from Oklahoma and Alabama respectively.

Since its founding in 1997, PAWS has had a profound impact on the lives of homeless pets in Chicago: the number of homeless animals euthanized per year in Chicago has dropped by an astounding 86 percent, helping to save thousands of lives in the process.

In 2018, PAWS found loving homes for nearly 5600 homeless pets! But there is more work to be done and your generosity is crucial to this effort.

Any contribution you make to my fundraising efforts would provide vital medical care, food and shelter to thousands of homeless pets this year. Further, you would directly support PAWS Chicago's efforts to help treat and rehabilitate sick and injured animals and unite them with loving families. Together with your support, PAWS will provide an additional 18,000 low cost/free spay or neuter surgeries this year in low-income communities where most stray and unwanted animals originate.

PAWS is also in the process of building a newly expanded medical center ( which will enable their team to care for more animals in need of urgent care and provide even more low-cost spay and neuter surgeries.

PAWS does not just help dogs in Chicago - they help pull animals from high-kill areas in the South, like Alabama (where Parker came from) and Oklahoma (where Sylvia is from) and help rescue animals when disaster strikes like it did recently with tornadoes investigating Oklahoma. Their live-saving impact cannot be overstated.

Please join me in our goal of making Chicago and the entire country an entirely no-kill community!

Thank you so much for any generosity you can offer!
