Five years ago, my wife, Mary, and I rescued a dog from a local shelter. Charlotte quickly became a part of our family and one of my best friends. We know how life-changing adoption can be for homeless pets and their new families. Charlotte has brightened each of our days since October 1, 2015 and we only hope we do the same for her.
In 2019, PAWS Chicago facilitated over 5,000 adoptions of homeless animals, provided medical care for over 2,300 pets from underserved communities, performed over 15,000 free/low-cost spay and neuter surgeries, and saved 97.9% of animals brought into their care!
My goal is to raise $662, the average cost of treating one sick or injured pet, from rescue to adoption.
PAWS Chicago is dedicated to building No Kill communities – starting with a No Kill Chicago – where all healthy and treatable pets are saved. Since PAWS Chicago’s founding in 1997, the number of homeless animals euthanized per year in Chicago has dropped more than 87 percent. But there is more work to be done and your generosity is crucial to this effort.
Please consider supporting me by making a donation and helping PAWS Chicago provide vital medical care, food and shelter to thousands of homeless pets this year. PAWS receives no government funding and relies solely on people like you to help provide continued care for Chicago's homeless animals.
