PAWS Chicago is a national model for No Kill animal sheltering and is building a No Kill community where pets are no longer euthanized because they are homeless. In 2007, PAWS Chicago opened the Midwest’s only cageless, state-of-the-art, No Kill shelter.With proactive adoption and spay/neuter p

rograms, more than 5,000 dedicated volunteers, and a nationally renowned shelter medicine program, PAWS Chicago is transforming animal welfare and saving lives.

2012TEAM PAWS Chicago had 600 members who raised one-third of the cost to operate PAWS Chicago’s cageless No Kill Adoption Center! Homeless pets receive no government funding and are dependent on the animal-loving community. With even more members in 2013, PAWS Chicago will have the resources to save the lives of more cats and dogs.
