Holiday Giving 2023 | PAWS Chicago

Your Gift Is Urgently Needed Now

After 26 years of progress, Chicago is experiencing a surge in pet homelessness and euthanasia at the city pound. The pandemic’s after-effects have been terrible for vulnerable dogs and cats.

PAWS Chicago is the city pound's number one transfer partner, and since June, we've taken 62% more pets than we did last year. But we need to do more, and you can accelerate the lifesaving. Donate now and your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000, thanks to a Matching Gift Challenge made possible through the generosity of the Rachael Ray Foundation.
