Request for Laundry Soap
If you are looking for an easy way to help out, we are asking for donations of laundry soap. Any brand of liquid soap will do and is very much appreciated. Donations may be dropped off at the shelter. Thank you so much for your ongoing support!
On June 30th, we received an urgent call from a fellow rescuer who had found a dog who was severely injured. We gladly took the dog in knowing that he most likely required immediate medical attention. When he was examined by the emergency vet, it was discovered that this poor dog had been shot in his ear & chest. He is currently in the care of one of our vets. Since Gunner first came to us, his infection spread & he had to have his ear amputated. We are committed to providing Gunner with the best care possible until he has fully recovered, however the vet bills are adding up very quickly & we could use all the help we can get. If you would like to contribute to Gunner’s care, please click here.

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!
