Newman's Story

Meet Newman, a handsome 4-year-old, 13-pound cat. Newman had a rough start in life and ended up at the local animal control with a severe upper respiratory infection where he was at risk of being euthanized.

Luckily, Newman was able to receive the care he needed at the PAWS Chicago’s Medical Center, and now he’s healthy and happy. This black-and-white beauty is always dressed up in a tuxedo and ready to lounge in the sun. Newman enjoys soft beds and playing with wand toys. This distinguished fellow would love a home where he is treated as a king.

Meet Newman

Newman can’t wait to meet you!

If you’re interested in adopting this pet, there are few steps you must complete before scheduling an appointment at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center:

1.   Please start by taking our ComPETibility Quiz to make sure they’re a good fit for your home. Your ComPETibility Score will help you compare your home to their needs!

2.   After completing your ComPETibility Quiz, you will be emailed a link to complete your Adoption Application.

3.   Finally, schedule an appointment at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center! During your appointment, you’ll be able to meet all currently-adoptable animals at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center and walk through the adoption process with our staff and volunteers.

Please note that while we can’t place holds on adoptable animals for your scheduled appointment, there are always plenty of homeless pets looking for a home! If you don’t meet the perfect pet during your first visit to the Adoption Center, please feel free to schedule another appointment.

Please note that due to current COVID restrictions, to meet or adopt an available animal, you will need to schedule an adoption appointment for animals located at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center or complete a Foster Pet Adoption Inquiry Form for animals in a foster home.
