Rockin’ Rescue Ride 06/02



I know you have many animals come through your great facility, but on December 7, 2015 we f o und our forever dog with you! I just wanted to send you some updated pictures to let you know that Buffy (aka Daphne) is GREAT!!! She has gone through 4 dog training classes and her biggest problem is stopping everyone in the store so she can say hi! She is absolutely amazing and we wanted to thank you for all of your hard work rescuing these amazing animals!  Happy Easter to everyone and thank you! 


My husband and I adopted Ada (we now call her Nola) Sunday (2.21.16).  I just wanted to say how wonderful our experience was!  Everyone who works and volunteers there is so friendly and we just love Nola! :)  She is just a wonderful kitten!  She is very social and loves people!


Felicia is adjusting SO WELL!!! It’s incredible.  She hid for the first three days but she has finally decided to start hanging out in the living room with us.  AND her and my cat get along really well!!! They lay together and chase each other and it’s so cute!  She actually came up and wanted me to pet her for the first time today!

*Felicia (formerly Domino) found her forever home after spending 812 days with us at P.A.W.S.


Vader is a hyper, loving puppy who loves to play all day. He and his best friend, Cooper, love to play outside and cuddle! He loves doing tricks for treats and he is working very hard on potty training. He is the most adorable pup ever!


We adopted Firefox in July and she is such a sweetheart!  She made herself at home immediately and we love her more with every passing day! Here she is trying on her Halloween costume a little bit early!


DJ and I adopted Claire 2 years ago from Paws and can’t imagine life without her.


Hello, Attached is a photo of Lexi (formerly Cora) who was adopted from PAWS in June of 2010. She is a happy older sister of two dog siblings! Her favorite spot is pictured here on the arm of the couch.


Here is a picture of Snowball (4883).  I adopted her earlier this year.  She has made us so happy.

Floyd (formerly known as Buster)

Hi PAWS, This is Floyd (formerly known as Buster). His hobbies include laying on his back in the middle of the room, running around the house at top speed for no reason, watching me shower like a creep and playing so rough that he draws blood. My blood. But he is super talkative, super cuddly and super entertaining. Love this fat cat to death.
Thanks PAWS


We adopted Bruno in October 2014. He fits so perfectly into our family and we love him so much. He has been so spoiled with trips up to Wisconsin, many shopping trips to the local pet stores where he picks out his toys, dog park outings, and lots of lazy days snuggled up on the couch with us. Thank you so much for letting us adopt him!

Foxy and Cleveland

June 25, 2013 we adopted Foxy and Cleveland from Paws Tinley Park.  We love these two goofball litter mates.


I adopted my Bailey in Nov. 2014.  I was looking for a female pitbull (I had just lost mine to cancer), maybe around 4-6 years old…but I walked by Bailey and it was love a first site….she is a 1 1/2 year old female, shepherd mix…not quite what I was looking for, but I love her to pieces…and there is still a possibility of a pittie sister for her.

Smokey (formerly Aries)

This is Smokey (formerly Aries). We adopted him from Paws in Tinley back in March 2009. He has been such a friendly and easygoing guy, especially for being an adult already when we adopted him… plus the fact that we have 3 children! He’s a wonderful addition to our family!

Our dog Rosie


I adopted my dog Penny a year ago from PAWS. She was rescued from a puppy mill and severe anxiety along with dental issues. I can say that PAWS was wonderful with her and she is doing amazing. She is able to play with other dogs and has adjusted very well. We even graduated from Puppy Training School! She is a sweet and wonderful dog!

Lily (was Angel)

We also adopted Lily (was Angel) in Dec. 2013. Poor thing was so scared! She still is our scaredy cat and won’t come downstairs. Fortunately, ours is a quiet house and she is coming out more and more (after 1 1/2 years). She kept running under the bed, which was fine that she had a place she felt safe, but then she hurt herself and we had to block it off. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise. She was not happy at first, but started gaining confidence being out in the open. She’s got the full run of the upstairs and is adjusting well as you can see by her glamour shots. 

Daisy (Formerly Luna)

Hi, On March 1st, 2013, we adopted a cat named Luna (now Daisy). She was approximately 15 yrs old then and is now about 17 yrs. old. While at Paws she was diagnosed with the start of kidney failure and now has a hyper thyroid. We have experience with two prior 18 year old cats with kidney and thyroid issues, so this is not new to us. She has us wrapped around her little paws . . .

We are so glad we were able to bring Daisy into our home.


We rescued Rosie in April 2014. She had a lot of allergies & skin issues but we found what her allergies were & now doing great. Love this Dog!!


I adopted Kaner at your facility on New Year’s Eve. He is such a joy in my life. He is very playful and smart. Thank u very much for my kitty.
