Dogs, owners help homeless pets at PAWS Chicago 5K Walk and Run

CHICAGO — Hundreds of dogs and their owners were at Montrose Harbor Sunday morning for the 18th annual PAWS Chicago 5K Walk/Run.

For 20 years, PAWS has been one of the area’s largest no-kill shelters, finding families for dogs in need of a good home. Its annual walk/run raises funds to help homeless animals.

More than 4,000 dogs and their parents participated in Sunday’s walk. There was even a little pampering for its four-legged participants at the doggie oasis.

With funds raised from the event, PAWS Chicago found homes for more than 5,371 dogs and cats last year alone.
