A Minnie Hochwarter Fund Success Story!
In March, 2016, P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park responded to a plea from another shelter to take a puppy that could not walk. They were not financially able to seek the treatment she might need to live a normal life. Harmony was just 6 weeks old & could barely get around. Her back legs would drag behind her as she inched herself along. It was heartbreaking to watch her. Click here to read the rest of Harmony’s success story!

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!
