Chicago Animal Shelter Pleads For Adopters As They Reach Full Capacity

Wagging tails, doggie kisses, batting paws and soft purrs can all be yours when you adopt a loving fur child. A no-kill animal shelter in Chicago is pleading with the public to come out and adopt, as they have reached full capacity.

PAWS Chicago is the largest no-kill shelter in the city. “These are the pets we know best and we want to find them the perfect home! Stop by our Lincoln Park Adoption Center from 11 am to 6 pm this Saturday and Sunday. By rallying the community and generating more adoptions, PAWS will be able to take in and save more dogs and cats this summer,” the shelter posted on Facebook.
