Thank you to Animal Magnetism 2020 Sponsors, committee members, and guests! Though we were saddened to cancel this year's event, we are so appreciative of your understanding and ongoing support.

We look forward to celebrating with you next year!

14th Annual Animal Magnetism
Friday, March 13, 2020

UPDATE: PAWS Chicago’s Animal Magnetism event scheduled for Friday, March 13 at Morgan Manufacturing has been canceled due to health and safety concerns surrounding the coronavirus.

All of us at PAWS—from our hardworking Professional Board and event committee, who put so much into planning the event, to our team of staff and volunteers—are so disappointed that we will not be able to hold an event that’s become an annual highlight and helps us save so many homeless animals together. 

However, as an organization dedicated to saving lives, the health and safety of our community, supporters, volunteers, staff and animals is the highest priority. We apologize for any inconvenience due to this change of plans.

For any additional questions, please feel free to email  

Thank You To Our Sponsors

Saving Lives at Animal Magnetism

PAWS Chicago is a national model in No Kill animal sheltering, committed to bringing an end to the killing of homeless cats and dogs. As Chicagoland’s largest No Kill shelter, and one of the largest in the nation, PAWS has helped to reduce the number of homeless pets killed in the city by 91% since its founding in 1997. In just 20 years, PAWS Chicago has grown from a grassroots organization to a national leader in the No Kill movement, guiding other communities in how to dramatically reduce the euthanasia of homeless cats and dogs. 

Events like Animal Magnetism are working to save the homeless dogs and cats who are still at risk. By supporting Animal Magnetism, you are part of the solution to end the killing of homeless animals and are taking us closer to the goal of a No Kill community.
