COTG EMPLOYEES VOLUNTEER AT PAWS CHICAGO ADOPTION CENTER
Bolingbrook, Illinois – March 7, 2013 – On Wednesday, March 6th,
fifteen COTG employees volunteered their time and efforts at the PAWS Chicago Adoption
Center in Lincoln Park. For a few hours, these employees assisted PAWS Chicago with
daily tasks like cleaning pet areas, dishes, assembly of surgical cones for animals
and putting together mailing packets. While onsite, the COTG team had the opportunity
to listen to a representative from PAWS discuss the background of PAWS Chicago and
learn how donations and volunteer work are imperative to the running of the non-profit
organization. The visit also allowed COTG employees to get a tour of the unique
facility and to engage with some of the animals at the organization.
Founded in 1997, PAWS Chicago was created to end the senseless killing of homeless
pets in our community. Since being founded, PAWS Chicago has helped over 20,000
pets find new homes and is on track to have 4,500 pets adopted this year.
