PAWS Chicago works to permanently reduce the overpopulation of homeless pets in Chicago by leading a grassroots effort to engage and activate the community in animal welfare and developing a national model for high-quality No Kill animal sheltering. PAWS Chicago is working to:
- Build No Kill communities – starting with a No Kill Chicago – that respect and value the life of every cat and dog.
- End the overpopulation of homeless animals through solutions, practices and education.
- Transform animal welfare by setting higher standards in the way animals are treated and developing a sustainable, solutions-based model.
