Charity Navigator Has Awarded PAWS Chicago with a 4-star rating!

We are happy to announce that for the ninth consecutive year in a row, Charity Navigator has awarded PAWS Chicago with a 4-star rating.

This is an exceptional accomplishment for PAWS Chicago, as only 1% of charities evaluated by Charity Navigator have ever received a 4-star rating nine years in a row. Charity Navigator is the country’s premier independent charity evaluator, evaluating charities based on their efficient use of donor funds.

PAWS Chicago would not be able to accomplish such milestones without the community’s support. To learn more about Charity Navigator and PAWS Chicago’s 4-star rating, please visit
