Cute For A Cause

PAWS Chicago is a Chicago-based animal shelter dedicated to providing adoption and veterinary services in a no-kill setting. They are Chicago’s largest no-kill, humane organization that focuses on implementing solutions to end the killing of homeless pets.

At Car Cuties, we started out with a mission to help pets in need.

That is why a percentage of each sale of a Car Cutie gets donated to help PAWS in their efforts to save animals. Thank you for helping us assist PAWS Chicago.

Adopt, Don’t Shop

PAWS Chicago prides themselves on their ability to save over 98% of the pets that come through their doors with nearly 5,600 adoptions in 2018 alone! Their total number of adoptions through 2018 is over 59,000.

Why are there so many cats and dogs that need homes? There are too many kittens and puppies born and too few being adopted. One female cat and her offspring can produce more than 420,000 kittens over a seven year span! That’s a lot of cuties who need homes. Learn more about lifesaving impacts for these cats and dogs.

Take a tour of PAWS Chicago’s innovative Adoption Center in Lincoln Park for a closer look at their No Kill model of sheltering.
