Meet Rui


Rui would love to meet you! Rui would do best in an adults-only home with an experienced cat owner. Stop by our Pippen Fasseas Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave., in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood, today.

Rui's Story

Rui is one of the animals that PAWS Chicago was able to rescue from Houston following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The PAWS team drove more than 20 hours each way to transport animals from a local shelter in Houston back to the PAWS Chicago Medical Center.  The pets rescued by PAWS Chicago were given up by their owners or had already been in the shelter before Harvey hit, making room for the homeless animals that continue to come in and for pets of families who have lost everything and can no longer keep their animals.  

Adoption Process

All PAWS Chicago dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and have up-to-date shots based on age and arrival date.
