PAWS Chicago Lifeline Monthly Giving Program

Will You Be Their Lifeline?

Rock Star received a lifeline from PAWS Chicago veterinarians who set and cast his broken leg after being hit by a car.

Monthly Giving Program to Save Lives

We need your help to save homeless pets in our community. These helpless, homeless pets can’t save themselves, but you can be their Lifeline.

17,000 pets are being killed in Chicago every year. At PAWS Chicago, we take as many as we can save and give a guarantee of life. We need your help.

Our Lifeline Monthly Giving program ensures that we can take in more homeless pets who would otherwise end up a tragic statistic. When we know we can rely on this monthly support, we can take in more animals and give them the medical care and treatment they need so that they can find a family that will love them for the rest of their lives.

Suffering from an intestinal infection, PAWS Chicago provided Betty with life-saving medical care.

You can be a Lifeline.

By signing up and joining the other PAWS Chicago Lifeline members today and making a tax-deductible donation, you will help support our important work of saving animals all year-round. Please give what you can, but just $15 per month (only fifty cents a day) makes a real difference in the lives of homeless pets.

Lifeline members receive a subscription to PAWS Chicago Magazine and special Lifeline E-Newsletters showing what a difference your support makes for animals in need.
