The Fund the Shelters Challenge offers a new opportunity for animal welfare organizations to raise funds to support lifesaving programs and to help offset reduced or waived adoption fees during Clear the Shelters Day (August 17).
We're competing for $200,000 in grand prizes and bonus challenges to help further our mission. The team that raises the most during the Challenge wins an additional $50,000 donation, with donation prizes for second through sixth place as well. There will also be weekly Bonus Challenges for organizations to win another $65,000.
When you donate to PAWS Chicago through this Challenge page, 100% of the proceeds go towards our work AND you also help us win additional donations from the Challenge. It's a win/win for homeless pets

PAWS Chicago (Pets Are Worth Saving) 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 over 87 percent since its founding in 1997. PAWS Chicago has grown from a grassroots organization to a national leader in the No Kill movement, guiding other communities in how to dramatically reduce the euthanasia of homeless cats and dogs.
In 2018, PAWS Chicago found homes for 5,591 dogs and cats through its Lincoln Park and Highland Park Adoption Centers and performed 16,750 spay and neuter surgeries through its Lurie Clinic and GusMobile Spay/Neuter Van. These two medical resources give PAWS Chicago the ability to provide subsidized spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations and humane education to under-served families and neighborhoods that need the most help in controlling pet population.
Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest independent evaluator, has rated PAWS Chicago at its highest 4-star ranking for 16 consecutive years—an accomplishment that less than 1% of the charities in the nation have reached.
