CHICAGO — PAWS Chicago is collecting supplies to help animals affected by Hurricane Ida.
People can drop off donations 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesday at the PAWS Medical Center, 3516 W. 26th St. People should go to the entrance on Drake Street.
The shelter is collecting bottled water, dry and canned pet food, cleaning supplies, kitten and puppy milk replacer, leashes, collars and flea and tick medication, according to a news release.
Hurricane Ida has hit Louisiana hard, killing at least two people and causing mass flooding, destroying homes and leaving thousands without power. PAWS plans to help families and their animals by connecting with Louisiana shelters to take in pets and provide them with homes and medical care.
More information about how to donate to PAWS’ Ida relief work is available online.
