PAWS Chicago Beach Party a Success

PAWS CHICAGO is the city's largest NO KILL Humane organization, focused on alleviating Pet Homelessness. Lasy night was their 8th Annual Beach Party and I was lucky enough to attend with my 2 dad's. Boy, there were dogs everywhere! Big dogs, little dogs, one lady even brought her turtle! They even had doggy treat tables for us! Thousands of dollars were raised last night and all that money goes to help needy animals.

If you're in the Chicago area, watch for the upcoming RUN FOR THEIR LIVES 4k walk in September and the fabulous FUR BALL in December, which is a very chic black tie event!
If you're looking for pet, think about adopting. SO MANY homeless animals need a caring home, and they have lots of love to give someone.

Since PAWS Chicago’s founding in 1997, the number of homeless dogs and cats killed annually has dropped more than 50 percent.
