Holiday Giving | PAWS Chicago

Remember the Animals This Holiday

You give them shelter. You care for all their needs. You offer them your whole heart. And in return, they give the most precious gift of all - unconditional love.

This holiday, as you enjoy the cozy respite of the season, please consider sharing your warmth with a homeless pet. Your generous donation to PAWS Chicago will help us rescue, rehabilitate and find loving homes for thousands of animals in the coming year.

PAWS Chicago is dedicated to building No Kill communities where all healthy and treatable pets are saved. It is because of your support that we can save the lives of homeless pets like Gabriella, Maddie and countless more. Read some of their stories below.

Your Gift Goes 3 Times as Far

With a generous match by our longtime supporter, Michael Sweig, your gift will be matched three times, up to $50,000. Please help us get this entire matching gift by making a contribution today.
