Impact of TEAM PAWS
TEAM PAWS is a charity racing and fundraising team benefiting PAWS CHICAGO, the Midwest's largest No Kill humane animal shelter. With TEAM PAWS' support, since PAWS’ founding in 1997, the number of homeless dogs and cats killed annually in Chicago has dropped more than 80 percent.

But there is still work to be done. PAWS Chicago is striving to build No Kill communities, starting with Chicago, where pets are no longer destroyed just because they are homeless. Learn more at
