Paws Chicago Overview
Programs: In September of 2007, PAWS Chicago opened the first No Kill, cageless, state-of-the-art shelter in the Midwest. Featured in a segment on the Oprah Winfrey Show, PAWS Chicago's Adoption Center has received national attention and has changed the face of animal welfare in Chicago. The Adoption Center welcomes pets, volunteers and adopters into a warm, peaceful environment, where all pets reside in comfortable, sunlit rooms and receive love and socialization, and where dogs receive multiple walks each day. Above all else, every pet at PAWS Chicago is guaranteed life.* In its first year, more than 3,000 cats and dogs were united with new homes the Adoption & Humane Center, not including the pets adopted out by small shelters and rescue groups who are invited to showcase their homeless pets to potential adopters on weekends. PAWS Chicago also features a Safe Haven program, where PAWS Chicago will help families experiencing crisis, whether it be domestic violence, fire, financial distress or foreclosure, to find a temporary foster home so they can be reunited with their pet once they get back on their feet, or PAWS Chicago will find a new home for the pet if the family sees no other alternative.
