PAWS Chicago is the city's largest no-kill humane organization, focused on implementing solutions to end the killing of homeless pets. Since PAWS Chicago's founding in 1997, the number of homeless dogs and cats killed annually has dropped by nearly 80 percent: from more than 42,000 homeless pets killed in 1997 to under 10,000. PAWS Chicago is working to build a no kill Chicago - a city where pets are no longer destroyed just because they are homeless. PAWS Chicago will find new homes for nearly 6,000 homeless pets this year at the state-of-the-art Pippen Fasseas Lincoln Park Adoption, the satellite Glenn L. Felner North Shore Adoption Center and nearly weekly on- and off-site adoption events. The PAWS Chicago Lurie Spay/Neuter Clinic, the largest free spay/neuter clinic in Midwest, will sterilize more than 18,000 pets of low-income families this year.

The Greater Chicago Food Depository, Chicago's food bank believes that a healthy community starts with food. The Food Depository acts as the hub for a network of more than 700 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other programs in the area. These programs provide food where it's most needed. The Food Depository also addresses the root causes of hunger. Outreach and job training programs offer a hand up for our neighbors to overcome poverty. As the face of hunger changes within our communities, the Food Depository continues to evolve as well with programs that address the changing needs of diverse groups, including children, older adults, and veterans. The Food Depository enables communities to face their challenges with confidence. Today and in the long term, providing nutritious food is an investment in health and hope.
