Ways to Donate
A donation specifically to P.A.W.S. cause is a donation directly to
our medical fund. Not every rescued cat/dog that arrives at our shelter is
in a suitable condition to be adopted. Some pets come to us with urgent
medical needs ranging from broken bones to serious infections. These
conditions often require critical medical care, including surgery. A simple
notation on your check or comment on your on-line giving form assures you
that your donation will go directly for medical care.
Remember or honor a favorite human or
furry friend with a message on our beautiful stone pavers in our newly
designed memory brick garden.

Give the Gift of Life
Why not celebrate birthdays, graduations,
or holidays by giving the gift of life? Consider a donation or a membership
in the name of your loved one or animal loving friend. Remember, since we
are a volunteer shelter, one hundred percent of your donation will go toward
the needs of our furry residents. We will acknowledge the gift with a
special card sent to the individual to honor the event.
A memorial gift to PAWS of Tinley Park is
a personal remembrance that honors the life of a friend, pet, or relative.
With your donation, we will mail the recipient a card acknowledging your
thoughtful gift in memory of a loved one.

The Gift of Stock
As a registered 501(c) 3 charity, P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park relies solely
on private donor support. Not only will the gift of stock help you save
lives, you may avoid paying capital gains taxes on assets that might have
increased in value. In addition, you will be able to write off the cash
value of your gift. Please consult with your financial advisor or attorney
for tax specifics.
Your will or trust document is the most important and personal document
you will ever draft. It is a testament to the people and causes that matter
to you most. It provides you with an opportunity to make a much larger gift
than you ever thought possible. By naming P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park as a cash
or partial beneficiary of your estate, your legacy will be secured as saving
thousands of homeless and abandon animals.
