Join Chicago celebrities as they adopt homeless dogs and cats to new families this holiday season! Starting on December 13, 2012, through Christmas Eve, Chicago celebrities will be joining PAWS Chicago in an effort to find homes for dogs and cats at this special time of year.
Please help save a life this holiday season and visit the wonderful dogs and cats at PAWS Chicago’s Adoption Center, located at 1997 N. Clybourn in Chicago. With special holiday hours through the end of December, PAWS will feature adorable animals who will be available for adoption each day. As pets find new homes, PAWS Chicago will be able to take in more homeless dogs and cats, saving more lives. Check this website each day to see updates on celebrity visits and new animals (puppies and kittens) available for adoption.
On the twelfth “Stray of Christmas,” CBS 2 Chicago’s Suzanne LeMignot will visit PAWS Chicago’s Adoption Center where she will volunteer her time and learn about PAWS Chicago’s No Kill mission.
Check back later today for an update and photos of her experience!
