Holiday Match

Holiday Matching Gift Challenge

Looking ahead to 2014,  PAWS Chicago is eager to expand its reach and its mission to rescue, heal and find new families for even more pets.

Double Your Donation

Our Holiday Matching Gift Challenge will help us do that.

In late 2013, dedicated PAWS Chicago supporter Judith Blazer has generously offered to support this special holiday fundraising initiative, which will match any donation up to a total of $50,000.  That means your gift of $50, for example, becomes $100 and will mean twice as much to homeless, sick and injured pets.

Giving now will mean you will be saving pets like Stevenson, a four-year-old cat who was found on the side of the Stevenson Expressway in a box with a day’s worth of food.  This gentle boy was missing an eye and had an open wound on his neck, along with a few cracked teeth.  Our veterinarians are treating Stevenson for all of these health issues, as well as Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), so that he will soon be ready for a loving home.

With your support, we will be able to help more dogs and cats, like Stevenson, get a second chance at a healthy, happy life.

 So make a special gift to PAWS Chicago and know that your gift will be matched, dollar-for-dollar for greater impact.

And on behalf of all here at PAWS Chicago, our deepest gratitude and wishes to you and your loved ones for great peace and joy now and throughout the New Year.
