Lifeline Monthly Giving Program | PAWS Chicago

For as little as 33¢ a day, you will change more lives than you ever imagined. Monthly support has far greater impact—it means we can plan for the future and grow lifesaving PAWS initiatives like free and low-cost spay neuter services, veterinary assistance in underserved areas, and medical support for sick or badly injured animals. Making a monthly donation goes beyond the regular level of support—but it means so much more to homeless animals. Please give what you can. 

How can I make changes to my account?

When will my credit card be charged?

  • Your first donation will occur the day you join the Lifeline Monthly Giving Program. All subsequent donations will occur on the same day of each month. So if you join on April 11, donations will occur on the 11th of each month.

Will I receive verification of my donation for tax purposes?

  • If you provide your email address, we will email you acknowledgement of your donation each month. Otherwise, we will mail you an annual statement in January for the previous year. 

What are the benefits of being a Lifeline donor?

  • As a way of saying thank-you for your generosity, you will receive a subscription to PAWS Chicago magazine and special Lifeline enewsletters. 

How will my donation be used?

  • Your monthly donation will support PAWS Chicago and our mission to build a No Kill community. Your donation directly funds our rescue of homeless pets. With your consistent support we are able to provide shelter and care for thousands of homeless, injured and neglected animals each year.
