Building a No Kill Chicago

By joining us on July 20, you and your pet will enjoy a social summer evening together in Chicago while supporting the important programs that are essential to saving homeless pets.

PAWS Chicago is a national model in No Kill animal sheltering, committed to bringing an end to the killing of homeless cats and dogs. As Chicagoland’s largest No Kill shelter, and one of the largest in the nation, PAWS has helped to reduce the number of homeless pets killed in the city by more than 80 percent since its founding in 1997. In 2016, PAWS Chicago found homes for 5,125 homeless pets through its Pippen Fasseas and Glenn L. Felner Adoption Centers, and performed 17,236 spay/neuter surgeries through its Lurie Clinic and GusMobile Spay/Neuter Van. 

Events like Beach Party help raise the funds necessary for PAWS Chicago to continue to save the homeless dogs and cats who are still at risk. By supporting events like Beach Party, you are part of the solution to end the killing of homeless animals and are taking us closer to the goal of a No Kill community.

Thank you for helping homeless animals. We’ll see you on the beach!
