Stay warm with some news from PAWS Chicago

Feb 01, 2019

We can’t do anything about the frigid temperatures outside, but we’d like to help warm your heart!

We’re so grateful that Pegasus was saved by one of our trap-neuter-return partners in advance of the worst of this winter freeze, but not before frostbite got to her ears. Our vets are also treating her for an upper respiratory infection, dehydration and fleas, but she’s one of the lucky ones who made it to our PAWS Chicago safe-haven.  Remember, if you’re cold, your pet is cold. Check out these helpful tips to keep your pets safe and warm this winter.

Thanks to you, so many formerly homeless pets are spending these cold days in a warm home. We are so grateful for your support of our lifesaving work.  Don’t miss our other PAWS news below. 

Please stay safe and warm!
