PAWS Chicago's lifesaving work is only possible because of the support and funds raised by animal-loving community members like you!  By fundraising, you can help us save homeless pets, prevent pet overpopulation through free spay/neuter, provide under-resources communities with important resources and raise awareness.  Check out our FOUR-STAR Charity Navigator rating HERE.  Click HERE to learn more about what your donations can do! 

It's important to share the work that PAWS Chicago does to your donors, and these animal stories will help you!  Print these out and include in solicitation/thank you letters, have out at your fundraising events and more!  You can download and print these cards by clicking HERE
