No Kill Mission

The foundation of everything we do at PAWS Chicago.

About No Kill

For years, shelters were silently killing the vast majority of homeless pets coming in. The public was kept in the dark. The No Kill revolution was founded to change this and to engage the public in solving the problem. PAWS Chicago is part of a revolution—the No Kill revolution—that started in San Francisco in 1994 and is now sweeping the nation.
