PAWS Chicago

In 1997 PAWS Chicago set out to end the unnecessary killing of thousands of homeless cats and dogs in the city, establishing a No-Kill shelter and organizing public-awareness campaigns. More than 30,000 adoptions later, staff members still visit Chicago Animal Care and Control every day to take as many pets into their care as they have room for, providing necessary medical attention as well as spaying and neutering services. The Lurie Spay and Neuter Clinic and GusMobile spay and neuter van serve the pets of low-income families and tackle the problem of animal overpopulation in city neighborhoods, by reducing the number of unwanted cats and dogs being born and ending up in shelters. In 2013, through the Adoption and Humane Center in Lincoln Park, PAWS Chicago adopted more than 5,872 dogs and cats. The center maintains a state-of-the-art cage-free facility to ensure pets live in comfort and dignity until they can be matched with an adoptive family.
