Cats, cats & more cats!
It’s summertime & that typically means we are overflowing with cats! This year is no different. We currently have about 40 cats available for adoption & many others who are waiting to be vetted before they can be placed for adoption. We do not have one single cage available to take in strays or give ups. This means that we have to turn cats away when they arrive at the shelter in need of a safe place to stay. Please stop by & check out the amazing cats we have. They are all so unique & full of love. You are bound to find someone who fits your family purr-fectly.

Bonded Seniors Find a Home!
Cosmo & Sam are a pair of bonded seniors who were given up by their owner after 10 & a half years. These lovable dogs were living in a shelter in Indiana from June through November when they were transferred to P.A.W.S. Tinley Park with the hope of finding a home. Cosmo & Sam were posted on Facebook and within one week their post was shared more than 3,800 times & was seen by more than 225,000 people! Their story was shared by the Chicago Tribune and WBBM FM radio. We are happy to announce that after all the media attention they received, Cosmo & Sam have been placed in a loving forever home!
Cage Free Cat Room
We are thrilled to announce that we have converted one of our adoptable rooms into a cage free environment for our cats! This room is equipped with hammocks, cat trees & lots of comfy lounging spots for our kitties to enjoy! There are bright, sunny windows & some strategically placed bird feeders outside to provide our cats with plenty of stimulation. The cats absolutely love this new environment & potential adopters love getting to see our cats’ personalities shining through! Stop by & see how happily our cats are living in their free roaming area!
As a non-profit organization, we could not keep our shelter open without the help of our generous Partners. Each of these businesses provides valuable services to the Shelter. From organizing an event or taking care of our animals and the shelter grounds, each of these Partners plays a special role in helping us with our mission of caring for and finding ‘furever’ homes for our animals.
