PAWS Chicago inspires me every day. It is Chicago's largest no-kill shelter. The homeless population of cats and dogs has been decreased over 55% because of PAWS' no-cost and low-cost spay/neuter program. The shelter is state-of the-art and cageless. PAWS has programs for every imaginable scenario--abuse, homelessness, domestic violence, natural disaster, it pulls more dogs and cats from Animal Care and Control than any other shelter, ---it has programs for everything, It also allows other rescue groups to use the spay/neuter clinic at super discounted rates. They are committed to spay/neuter--they are committed to all cats/dogs! It is an AMAZING not for profit.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I participate in shelter activities, I do Adopt-A-thons, I am in charge of the 2012 calendar project, I am on the board and see how PAWS is run--very very efficiently!
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would multiply PAWS and put it in every urban community and strive to make them no-kill cities with no and low cost spay/neuter programs
