Ami Moore Joins PAWS Chicago's Junior Board

Ami Moore, the Chicago Dog Coach, Joins the Junior Board of PAWS Chicago as a Sign of Support for Their Mission to Save Homeless Pets

Ami Moore, The Chicago Dog Whisperer, joins PAWS Chicago's Junior Board as a way to support their mission to save homeless pets and provide low-cost spay and neuter services to the Chicagoland area. Ami Moore, The Chicago Dog Expert is a supporter of homeless pets and shelter animals such as dogs, cats and rabbits being spayed or neutered before they find their forever homes. "Altering animals that are homeless before they are released to new homes is a smart idea," says Ami Moore.

Chicago, IL, October 23, 2008 --( Ami Moore, The Chicago Dog Expert had a dream. The Chicago-based dog coach longs to see “a Chicago where dogs are welcome everywhere and citizens are not afraid of the well-trained, well-mannered dog that should be in public places.”

Ami Moore is seeing her dream come true one pet at a time through her own work as a dog behaviorist and dog therapist, and she believes strongly in the efforts of her neighbors at PAWS (Pets Are Worth Saving) Chicago. The organization’s mission is to stop the killing of homeless animals. Moore joined PAWS’ professional board in 2008.

“Without the support of people like you, PAWS Chicago would not be able to accomplish its mission,” a congratulatory letter read. As a member of PAWS’ professional board, Moore will assist in planning a variety of fundraising events which will have a direct impact on helping save the lives of thousands of homeless cats and dogs in Chicago.

In 2007, the PAWS Chicago Adoption and Humane Center was opened. The facility is the first cageless, no-kill shelter in the Midwest. “Their facilities are state-of-the-art – better than 95 percent of the homes that people in Chicago live in,” Ami Moore the Chicago Dog Whisperer says.

Animals at the PAWS adoption center live in “suites” and receive plenty of fresh air, exercise, toys, love and respect. Ami Moore believes the natural environment there is beneficial to both the animals and the individuals who are considering adopting a pet. In 2007, more than 1,600 animals found permanent, loving homes through the facility.

Due to the efforts of Ami Moore the Chicago Dog Whisperer, CASA-The Coalition of Animal Shelter Alliance, the Chicago Humane Society, the City of Chicago Animal Control and PAWS only slightly more than 400 animals were euthanized in the city of Chicago due to inability to find a home. Ami Moore the Dog Whisperer of Chicago says, “As far as I am concerned, Chicago has achieved the dream of being a no-kill city. In 2007, only slightly more than four hundred were euthanized in the entire city due to a lack of a home. I believe that we have the most impressive number of rescued animals in America. Chicago is the city that ‘Can Do and Does’.”

PAWS Chicago also operates the Lurie Family Spay/Neuter Clinic – the largest provider of free and low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for pets in the area. Last year, more than 14,000 surgeries were performed on the pets of Chicago-area families.

Most of those surgeries were performed for free for families who receive public assistance. “In 2008, our goal is to perform more than 16,000 surgeries, as spay/neuter is the only way to ensure the number of homeless pets killed each year continues to drop,” says Jessica Busch of PAWS Chicago.
