Animal Magnetism | PAWS Chicago

Animal Magnetism

Join us for the celebration that helps save lives! Hosted by the PAWS Chicago Professional Board, the 12th annual Animal Magnetism event will take place on March 16th, 2018. Located at Morgan Manufacturing in the Windy City’s West Loop neighborhood, Animal Magnetism welcomes more than 600 of Chicago’s urban professionals, animal lovers, and canine companions!

 Guests will enjoy a night of food & drinks, dancing, entertainment, a spectacular silent auction, and much more! Pups at the party can enjoy specially prepared purees at the dog buffet, take part in meet and greets on the dance floor, or receive personal pampering in the designated Dog Spa!

This pet-friendly celebration is critical in raising funds that provide the operational support PAWS Chicago needs to continue saving thousands of homeless pets around the world each year. Several homeless, adoptable pets rescued by PAWS Chicago will be debuted at the event, and guests interested in adopting them will have the first opportunity to give them a forever home!

Saving Lives at Animal Magnetism

This pet-friendly celebration is critical in raising the funds necessary to ensure PAWS Chicago can continue to save and care for thousands of homeless pets each year. 

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 more than 80 percent since its founding in 1997. In 2016, PAWS Chicago found homes for 5,125 homeless pets through its Pippen Fasseas Lincoln Park and Glenn L. Felner North Shore Adoption Centers, and performed 17,236 spay/neuter surgeries through its Lurie Clinic and GusMobile Spay/Neuter Van. 

Events like Animal Magnetism are working to change that reality and save the homeless dogs and cats who are still at risk. By supporting events like 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.
