FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (CAROL STREAM, ILLINOIS) -- The Pawfect Project is a non-profit organization aimed at providing much needed funding for the basic needs of health care, food and toys for rescued and abandoned dogs and cats in the western suburbs of Chicago. The organization's main goal is to provide support for animals already abandoned and to help families affected by the economy get the support needed to keep their current pets healthy.

Mapleberry Pancake House in Carol Stream has become the foundation's home base. Owner Sylvia Papadakos has set up the organization and accepts donations from patrons and outside sources in order to fund the operation. Working in conjunction with Bloomingdale veterinarian Dena Reinisch, Sylvia is contacted when there is a situation that requires outside assistance: injured or sick animals without owners or whose owners do not have the financial means available to care for their pet. The Pawfect Project then steps in to help cover expenses required to care for the animal, and often times, save their life.

"There are so many loving animals that are in desperate need of our love and support," said founder Sylvia Papadakos. "Ultimately, every animal we keep out of the overcrowded shelters is a success. I am so happy to be able to have this opportunity to help these animals when others have just given up on them. The generous ongoing support of Mapleberry's customers makes everything possible and for that I am thankful, but it's time to expand our operation."

Monetary donations may be sent to at Mapleberry Pancake House, 1276 Kuhn Road, Carol Stream, IL 60188 ( 100% of donated proceeds go to benefit the animals in need via local shelters and veterinary offices. Tangible donations are also accepted. Some items needed include dry and canned pet food, flea collars, toys, treats, water/food dishes, litter boxes, litter, leashes, and collars. Donations are accepted all year round.

For additional information, please contact Sylvia at (630) 745-8213.
