PAWS Community Responds during time of Crisis

Mar 18, 2020

The PAWS Chicago community of supporters, adopters, fosters, volunteers and donors has been the backbone of PAWS Chicago since our founding in 1997. Time and again you've answered the call to save voiceless and vulnerable animals in need.

Now, you've outdone yourselves.

And we're humbled and so thankful for your passion and generous spirit during this time of uncertainty. Adopters, fosters and volunteers put their own concerns aside to make sure animals are not forgotten or left behind. Donors continue to provide the support that's essential to continue operating our adoption and medical centers.

There are many ways to lend your support:


Sign up to be added to our Foster Call Tree roster. As an Emergency Foster Responder, you are a hero for the animals in times of greatest uncertainty. 


While we may be working differently, our Lincoln Park Adoption Center remains open to find families for homeless and vulnerable pets. Review our animals available for adoption before you visit in person. 


While we have temporarily postponed our regular schedule of volunteer orientation sessions, we are seeking volunteers. An online volunteer registration form is under construction. Please check back frequently for updates.


In times of crisis, homeless and vulnerable animals are at greater risk than ever. PAWS Chicago's dedication to our mission of saving lives and securing a No Kill Chicago continues, with more passion and resolve than ever. We understand it's often difficult to provide financial support in times of uncertainty. If you can support voiceless and vulnerable animals, please consider a donation. Your support does more good now than ever.
