Christmas Memory Tree
The holidays are a time to celebrate our animals who bring us joy & companionship as well as remember the lives of our dearly departed pets who are still in our hearts. P.A.W.S. will host a Christmas Memory Tree to remember and honor those we love. With each donation of $5.00, we will illuminate a white light to remember a friend who has passed on or a red light to honor a friend who is still by your side. You may even include a picture of your pet. To download the form, click the following link: Memory Tree Order Form

We recently received notice from our local Animal Control Officer of an extreme situation with 28 cats living in an awful hoarding situation. We knew these cats needed out immediately & although we are already filled to the brim, we have now stacked ages in our shelter to help these animals. These cats are matted, sick & in need of immediate veterinary care. We rely on your support to help these animals who have nowhere to go. If you would like to make a donation, we are in need of bleach, paper towels & of course, monetary donations. Thank you for your support!

Home for the Pawlidays
As your family gathers for the holidays, do you have space for one more? P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park is taking applications and inviting area residents who live within a 20 mile radius of the shelter to become a holiday foster family over Christmas between December 23rd through December 27th. To be a foster family over the holidays is a wonderful way to capture the spirit of the season and give a homeless dog or cat a temporary break from living in a shelter. If you cannot be a foster family over the holidays, please consider donating this holiday season for the animals at P.A.W.S.
P.A.W.S. will be accepting applications from December 1st through December 20th. Click the following link to download the the application and send completed forms to email@example.com or drop them off at the shelter Attn: Terri. Applications will also be available at the shelter.

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.
