Against All Odds!
Jordan found himself at Trio Animal Foundation after his owner was no longer able to care for him. Trio transferred Jordan and his brother, JR, to P.A.W.S. Tinley Park so we could place them in homes. JR found a home pretty quickly, but despite being a wonderful dog, Jordan had every strike against him; he was a senior, pitbull with black fur. That combination of traits make it hard for a dog to find a home, but against all the odds, Jordan found his forever home on April 7th! Congratulations, Jordan! We wish you the very best!
P.A.W.S.’ Longest Resident Finds Forever Home!
After 993 days at P.A.W.S., Clover, a senior cat, finally found her forever home! On December 26th, Clover packed her bags and said so long to her shelter days! She went home with a kind and loving family who have already sent updates showing how Clover has made herself at home and is a beautiful addition to their family!
Congratulations, Clover! You will be missed, but our hearts are bursting with joy for you! Thank you to the special family who not only chose adoption, but gave a senior pet a wonderful life.
P.A.W.S. Alum Becomes National Search K-9!
Soni, a female German Shepard, was adopted from P.A.W.S. in 2013 by Mr. David Sullivan, a Community United Effort (CUE) Searcher. Mr. Sullivan saw something special in Soni and on November 13, 2015, she tested and passed her Human Remains Detection Certification test. Soni is now certified to respond to disasters to assist with locating victims.
Congratulations to Mr. Sullivan and Soni. It just goes to show that shelter dogs can do ANYTHING!
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.
