PAWS Chicago sponsors 36-hour 'Adopt-A-Thon'
June 21, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A no-kill animal shelter on Chicago's Northwest Side is raising awareness about the abundance of homeless pets.
PAWS Chicago is sponsoring a 36-hour Adopt-A-Thon. More than 150 dogs and cats are ready for good homes.
PAWS officials are hoping these animals get a second chance, which would free up space to take in more pets from the city pound.
The Adopt-A-Thon runs until 11 p.m. Saturday at PAWS Chicago on N. Clybourn.
