PAWS pet of the week: Demi!


Demi is a sweet 6-year-old Pointer Mix who had a rough start before she came to PAWS Chicago. Poor Demi was in a critical state after injuring her back leg trying to climb a barbed wire fence. Demi needed two corrective surgeries to repair the damage and was in a lot of pain, but thankfully this strong girl pulled through. Demi spent a month in recovery at PAWS Chicago’s Medical Center where she received laser treatments, antibiotics, and special care for the medical staff. She is now ready to complete her story and find a home to call her own! Demi hopes to find a family that will love and spoil her endlessly.

For more information on Demi, who is currently spending time in a foster home, call 773-935-PAWS, or email [email protected].

PAWS Pet of the Week: Karl

Karl is one handsome boy, and he hopes his good looks can help him find a family to call his own. This 1-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier can be a bit timid around strangers, but once he gets to know you, he loves to be petted and snuggled all day long. Despite his dapper looks, Karl loves to play, and turns into a huge goofball during playtime! When he’s not playing, Karl can be quite lazy, and enjoys stretching out in a sunny spot for a nap. Karl would do best in an active, adults-only home with an experienced owner who can continue his training. While he’s already mastered some tricks, this smart pup hopes to keep his brain busy by learning even more.

Karl, along with many other adorable dogs and cats, will be available for adoption today at noon at the PAWS Chicago Lincoln Park Adoption Center, located at 1997 N. Clybourn Avenue in Chicago.  For more information call 773-935-PAWS or visit www.pawschicago.org.

PAWS Pet of the week: Dobby!



Dobby is a handsome 3-month-old Siamese kitten.  He is incredibly playful and happy.  Dobby likes to bounce around the house, attack his favorite mouse toys, and chase after the elusive red laser light.  His soft fur makes him extra cuddly and irresistible.


Dobby, along with dozens of other adorable kittens, puppies, dogs and cats, will be available for adoption this Saturday, July 7th, at PAWS Chicago’s Angels With Tails Winnetka adoption event from noon to 4 p.m.  PAWS, along with six other local animal rescues and shelters, will team up to bring adoptable animals to 38 beautiful storefronts and sidewalks in the heart of Winnetka along Lincoln Avenue, Elm Street, and Chestnut Street.  For more information, visit pawschicago.org or call 773-935-PAWS!
