In Loving Memory

It is with a heavy heart that we share with you, Becky Palmieri's dad Jim Moore lost his hard fought battle with pancreatic cancer on August 12th, 2014.  Becky is one of the 4 founding members of Placing Paws and her family has been very involved and supportive of our rescue.
Jim was an incredible man, deeply devoted to his family and to the Evans Scholars Foundation where he worked for 40+ years.
He has touched 1000's of lives over his career and countless Evan's Scholars said they wouldn't be where they are today without the help and guidance of Jim Moore.

Pictured is Becky with her family, her dad and the last dog they adopted from Placing Paws last spring "Stanley Pup". Stanley was a faithful companion to Jim. He said he wanted his last dog to be a golden retriever and shortly thereafter a golden puppy came into our rescue. We think he was meant to be the Moore families dog.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Palmieri and Moore families as we grieve along with them.
This world lost one of the good guys, he will be missed by so many.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, memorials to Evans Scholars Foundation, One Briar Road, Golf, IL 60029, or
Placing Paws of Illinois.

Memorial Service Sunday August 24th, 2014, 1:00 p.m. at the United Methodist Church of Libertyville 429 Brainerd Ave. Libertyville, IL 60048.

$1000 More Stories Raffle
Every rescued animal comes with its own unique story.
What many share is their stop at Placing Paws on their journey
to a forever home. With your support, we have the chance to improve the lives of homeless pets. While our foster families provide pets
with the nurturing and loving homes they need to recover and
prepare for adoption, donations from our community fuel each
pet’s recovery with specialized medical care, food and training.
Every day we remember the feelings of joy and accomplishment
that accompanied our 1,000th adoption last summer – a fete made possible by the support of Placing Paws’ community of donors, adoptive & foster families, and volunteers.
Joining in our excitement, an anonymous donor contributed a
$1,000 cash prize to our summer raffle.
Since then, your generous gifts provided vital medical funding, food and supplies to Placing Paws as we continued our mission

Placing Paws is happy to announce the second annual 1,000 More Stories Summer Raffle.

Will you take this opportunity to provide life-saving financial support
to Placing Paws with your tax-deductible donation?

Your purchase will help us
create the beginning of 1000 more stories.

Tickets are:
One for $10.00
Three for $25.00
Ten for $50.00
