PAWS Chicago is the city’s largest No Kill humane organization. Since PAWS Chicago’s founding in 1997, the number of homeless dogs and cats killed annually has dropped more than 50 percent.
PAWS Chicago will find new homes for more than 4,400 homeless pets in 2011 through the state-of-the-art Adoption & Humane Center in Lincoln Park. The cageless Adoption Center provides homeless pets with the care and dignity they deserve while welcoming adopters, providing them with guidance in selecting their new pet and continued support for life.
The PAWS Chicago Lurie Spay/Neuter Clinic is the largest free spay/neuter clinic in Chicago and the nation. The Lurie Clinic provides free and low-cost spay/neuter services in under-resourced communities where the majority of stray and unwanted pets originate. This year, PAWS Chicago will sterilize more than 18,000 pets.
PAWS Chicago’s Community Outreach program has reached thousands of at-risk children and teenagers who witness dog-fighting and animal abuse.
Educational programs teach empathy, compassion, caring for pets, and how to help stop the cycle of violence.
