CHICAGO (WLS) -- PAWS Chicago Lincoln Park Adoption Center is hoping to help match pets with loving homes during its annual Spring Adopt-a-Thon Friday, May 5 through Sunday, May 7.

The above video is from a previous report.

The shelter will feature rescue dogs, cats, puppies and kittens ready to be adopted into forever homes.

According to PAWS Chicago CEO Susanna Wickham, every adoption not only saves an animal's life, but it opens up room at PAWS to save another animal.
