This Friday, February 22nd, Chicagoland dogs and their owners are invited to put their best paws/feet forward and hit the dance floor at 7:00 p.m. for the PAWS 7th Annual Chicago Animal Magnetism Event. The event will take place at the Galleria Marchetti located at 825 West Erie Street in Chicago.
Each year, for the past six years, this event gives trendy residents and their best four-legged loved ones a magnetic night on the town. This seventh pet-friendly year gives Chicagoans the opportunity to hook up with fellow animals lovers and their pets to enjoy a fun-filled evening that will include dinner, dancing, photos taken with that special pet and a one-of-a-kind live and silent auction.
Animal Magnetism is hosted by KISS FM’s Angi Taylor and the former Chicago Bears cornerback Jerry Azumah. The dog-friendly sensational event is expected to be attended by more than 350 guests, many of whom will be escorted by their canine companions in order to raise money for Chicago’s homeless pets.
Chicago PAWS, the acronym for Pets Are Worth Saving, is Chicago’s largest no-kill humane organization. North Community Bank, energy.me and Nate Laurell & Kris McCoy will present this great event. This event will allow the great Chicago animal rescue to procure funds that will enable them to support their ongoing efforts to alleviate Chicago’s tragic pet overpopulation problem.
On Friday, the trendy dogs and their owners will walk the red carpet, catching media attention – just like other celebrities do. The canines attending the event will enjoy a doggie buffet. Later the dogs and their owners will hit the dance floor; cutting a rug shall we say.
PAWS representatives will be present that evening to discuss the various aspects of their humane organization. If you are unfamiliar, PAWS Chicago was founded in 1997. It is currently the Midwest’s largest non-profit, No-Kill humane organization! They are very serious about formulating a plan to bring about their vision of a No-Kill Chicago. Everything that they do is centered around creating a city in which no pets are destroyed just because they are homeless. These animals deserve a shot and some very wonderful animals are destroyed just because – and that is sad!
If we can all do our part to help bring this goal to fruition, some very deserving pets will be able to administer love to those of us that really need that unconditional love. PAWS Chicago is doing their part. To date they have found homes for more than 5,600 pets! So let’s all get together and help support Chicago PAWS! Friday is a start!
