Animal lovers unite to raise money for PAWS Chicago

September 21, 2012

Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. is lending a hand to the world’s four-legged friends.

On September 28, the firm will host a Team Shirt & Jeans Day to benefit PAWS Chicago. By donating either $10 or pet care supplies, attorneys and staff will earn the right to wear jeans and their favorite sports jersey to the office. Items being collected for PAWS include leashes, collars, stainless steel bowls, brushes, cat toys and cleaning supplies.

Located in Lincoln Park, PAWS Chicago finds new homes for thousands of homeless pets each year. Since the organization’s founding in 1997, the number of homeless dogs and cats euthanized annually in the city has dropped more than 50 percent. PAWS provides a number of services in addition to adoptions, including a spay/neuter clinic and community outreach program.

The PAWS collection will serve as the 19th event in Chuhak & Tecson’s 25 Ways to Give Back service initiative. In honor of our clients and our silver anniversary, the firm is participating in 25 community service events throughout the year. Projects include everything from volunteering at senior centers, to preparing a meal at Ronald McDonald House, to a backpack collection for underprivileged youth.
