Saving Lives at Beach Party

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 91% since its founding in 1997. Since founding, PAWS Chicago has grown from a grassroots organization to a national leader in the No Kill movement, guiding other communities in how to dramatically reduce the euthanasia of homeless cats and dogs. 

Events like Beach Party are working to save the homeless dogs and cats who are still at risk. By supporting 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!
