The Vet Shows' Support: Paws Chicago
A new initiative US Vet Shows is bringing to Chicago Vet is The Vet Shows’ Support! It is a passion of ours to support both the veterinary and pet communities and we're so excited to be able to give back in this way. At each of our shows, we will be partnering with a local animal shelter that will receive financial donations and donations of goods. We’re thrilled to be partnering with PAWS Chicago for Chicago Vet 2022!
Take a break from sessions and get creative while decorating bandanas that will be donated to PAWS Chicago’s animals. Get in touch with your artistic side and create a masterpiece that a furry friend looking for a home will get to wear. Let’s bring a little bit of extra happiness to these shelter animals!
