Angels with Tails | PAWS Chicago

Chicago's Premier Adoption Event

Angels With Tails - Roscoe Village

Sunday, October 14th  |  Noon - 4:00pm 


On Sunday, October 14th, PAWS Chicago, the Midwest's largest No Kill humane organization, along with seven other local shelters and rescue groups, will team up to bring the faces of Chicago’s homeless animals to 31 stores and sidewalks along Roscoe Street!

The 7th Annual Angels with Tails Roscoe Village, presented by Merrick Pet Care and sponsored by The Roscoe Village Chamber of Commerce and 101.9 The Mix, is an opportunity to meet your new best friend and experience the joy a pet can bring to your life.

PAWS Chicago has transformed the lives of thousands of homeless pets; and it all began with this signature adoption event 20 years ago.

PAWS Chicago's standard adoption requirements will apply at all Angels with Tails adoption events.

Event Adoption Process: 

  1. Fill out an Adoption Application
    • Please see a Location Manager in a grey apron to fill out an adoption application first and foremost - a hard copy of the application is required at this event!  Please bring a copy of your printed application from the adoption center, or you can fill out a paper application at the event. We will not have the ability to print applications on the streets of this outdoor event.
  2. Meet your Match
    • Once you have found an animal to adopt, please see the Location Manager to review your adoption application.
  3. Adoption process
    • After your application has been reviewed, you will be directed to the Adoption Desk to complete the adoption process.
  4. Heading Home
    • Once you have completed the adoption process, your new pet will receive a red “PAWS Alumni” bandana and we will take your first family photo!

Finally, we would like to thank our Angels with Tails Co-Chairs, Christine Gnutek and Andrea Covington, for all of their hard work leading up to this event!
