Help us Make Hope HappenTM for PAWS Chicago by contributing to our fundraising efforts.

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.

Mark your calendars for the 16th Annual PAWS Chicago Beach Party taking place on Thursday, July 19, 2018 at Castaways North Avenue Beach! Set on Castaways beach yacht on the sand, Beach Party is a summer celebration for 500 luau guests and their pets. Sip cool frozen cocktails and soak up the sun, as the Lake Michigan waves roll in and the summer breeze fills the air. As the sun sets, dance the night away, enjoy an open bar, dinner, live and silent auctions, pet spa services, raffles and so much more!

PAWS Chicago is a national model in No Kill animal sheltering, committed to bringing an end to the killing of homeless cats and dogs. As Chicagoland's largest No Kill shelter, and one of the largest in the nation, PAWS has helped to reduce the number of homeless pets killed in the city by more than 80 percent since its founding in 1997. In 2017, PAWS Chicago found homes for 5,371 homeless pets through its Pippen Fasseas and Glenn L. Felner Adoption Centers, and performed 16,237 spay/neuter surgeries through its Lurie Clinic and GusMobile Spay/Neuter Van.

Events like Beach Party help raise the funds necessary for PAWS Chicago to continue to save the lives of homeless dogs and cats who are still at risk. By supporting events like Beach Party, you are part of the solution to end the killing of homeless animals and are taking us closer to the goal of a No Kill community.
