In other news, the Paws Chicago Animal Shelter is welcoming over 30 dogs from a shelter in Texas that was severely damaged due to a tornado. These dogs, who range from six weeks old to three years of age and suffer from various illnesses, will be examined by the staff and then sent to the Paws Adoption Center in Lincoln Park for further care. Spayed or neutered dogs that are healthy will be made available for adoption while the rest of the sheltered dogs will be provided with the necessary medical care before they are given a new home.
PAWS Chicago keeps sheltering homeless cats and dogs while also helping other shelters across the country who have been affected by natural disasters. The organization also works hand in hand with several shelters in 13 different states with a high culling rate. People interested in providing a helping hand can donate, volunteer, foster pets and adopt them from Paws Chicago.
