Fees will be waived Sunday on dogs that have been in the shelter for many months
Published 2 hours ago
For one day only, PAWS Chicago will waive adoption fees on pets who have been in their shelter for a long time.
On Sunday Nov. 4, the shelter will hold its “Help Us Save More” event, which is dedicated to finding homes for adult dogs that are often overlooked for puppies, the shelter said in a press release.
“Our goal is to find as many homes as possible for these wonderful adults who have been passed over, in turn making space for us to save more animals who need our help,” said PAWS Chicago Founder & Chair, Paula Fasseas. “These dogs just need a little extra love and patience to become the best dogs they can be, and we want to do everything we can to find them a home in time for the holidays.”
The shelter has provided a website where potential adopters can see which animals will have their adoption fees waived during the event.
The event will take place at the PAWS Chicago Lincoln Park Adoption Center, and will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
