Chicago Cubs to host animal adoption event with Paws Chicago


by - Senior Editor -

CHICAGO – On Wednesday, May 22, the Chicago Cubs along with wives Emma Hendricks and Lindsay Hawkins will host an animal adoption event at Gallagher Way from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. CT with PAWS Chicago as part of the team’s Family Program. During the event, Home Run Inn Pizza will serve up their delicious pizza for guests to enjoy. Live music will be provided by Chicago-based band The Allstars.

The pet-friendly event will include adoptable PAWS Chicago dogs and puppies. All attendees, particularly those interested in adopting a dog or puppy, are encouraged to bring their dogs for a sun-filled day of fun prior to the Cubs 6:40 p.m. CT game against the Atlanta Braves.

“We thank the Cubs, one of Chicago’s most beloved and iconic brands, for lending their support to homeless pets in Chicago,” said Susanna Wickham, CEO of PAWS Chicago. “As our city faces a surging intake of homeless pets and PAWS steps in to help Chicago Animal Care & Control, this adoption and awareness event couldn’t come at a better time.”

This will mark the second annual pregame adoption event the Cubs have held for PAWS Chicago at Gallagher Way.
