Room & Board has paired with Placing Paws of Illinois, a nonprofit organization that saves animals from high risk situations, to host a “Meet and Greet” with their current animals.
Join the volunteers of Placing Paws at Room & Board Skokie for a fun filled gathering with dogs, cats and kid-friendly activities! Come meet these adoptable animals of Placing Paws of Illinois at the Skokie location on Sunday, September 29 from 12:00-4:00 p.m.
The meet and greet event is free and open to the public.
All of the animals at this event have been in the care of the organization receiving proper veterinary treatment and a loving foster home while they wait to be placed in their new “forever homes.”
Placing Paws of Illinois (PPI) is an all-breed dog and cat foster based rescue group. Established in 2008 in Lake County, Illinois, PPI saves animals from high risk situations. One of their primary goals is to take animals from rural shelters that have a high euthanasia rate. Rural shelters are often overcrowded and underfunded and the animals there have little or no hope of finding an adoptive home. Often times their best hope of finding a happy forever home is to be taken into the care of a rescue such as PPI. All of the animals that are taken into the care and comfort of PPI receive proper veterinary care and a loving foster home while they wait to be placed in the "Hearts of their Forever Homes."
