Penelope's Story

 Penelope 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.
