    PAWS Chicago

    On Saturday, June 24, swing by to play and fall in love with one of the homeless pets looking for a new home, learn how you can help and bring in a donation for a chance to meet Miranda Lambert!

    PAWS Chicago is a national model in No Kill animal sheltering, committed to bringing an end to the killing of homeless cats and dogs. As Chicagoland’s largest No Kill shelter, and one of the largest in the nation, PAWS has helped to reduce the number of homeless pets killed in the city by more than 80 percent since its founding in 1997. In just 20 years, PAWS Chicago has grown from a grassroots organization to a national leader in the No Kill movement. In 2016, PAWS Chicago found homes for 5,125 dogs and cats through its Lincoln Park and Highland Park Adoption Centers and performed 17,236 spay and neuter surgeries through its Lurie Clinic and GusMobile Spay/Neuter Van. These two medical resources give PAWS Chicago the ability to provide free and low-cost spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations and humane education to under-resourced families and neighborhoods that need the most help in controlling pet population.

    Sober Shake

    Sober Shake is a group of music fans who choose to remain drug and alcohol free at LakeShake Festival. We are a division of Harmonium (www.harmoniuminc.org). Sober Shake is not affiliated with AA, NA or any other 12 step program and has absolutely no opinion on the issue of drugs and alcohol, and neither condemns nor condones it. Our simple purpose is to provide fellowship, support and information to those who seek the comfort and camaraderie of other clean and sober people at LakeShake Festivals. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stay substance-free at shows. Though Sober Shake consists primarily of those recovering from addiction, we are open to anyone who wishes to remain clean and sober at LakeShake Festival. We will host 2 recovery style meetings at 2pm and 6pm each day.
