About

focus on alleviating our city's tragic pet overpopulation problem

PAWS Chicago (Pets Are Worth Saving) is the city's largest no-kill humane organization. Our work is focused on alleviating our city's tragic pet overpopulation problem--19,701 dogs and cats were euthanized in Chicago in 2006. PAWS Chicago envisions a no-kill Chicago--a city in which pets are not destroyed just because they are homeless.
Managing pet overpopulation by killing is a way of the past. Collecting, holding, destroying and disposing of unwanted pets is costly and not the work of a humane organization. Private animal welfare resources should go solely to saving lives, prevention and education. Find out more about PAWS Chicago and how you can help us continue this very important work for our voiceless friends.
