|The business says:
Our work is focused on alleviating our city's tragic pet overpopulation problem--19,701 dogs and cats were euthanized in Chicago in 2006. PAWS Chicago envisions a no-kill Chicago--a city in which no pets are destroyed just because they are homeless.
PAWS Chicago is a solution to pet overpopulation. The only way to reduce pet overpopulation is through targeted spay/neuter. Located in Little Village, our Lurie Family Spay/Neuter Clinic is Chicago's only free and low-cost clinic located in and serving Chicago's most disadvantaged communities. Free spay/neuter is offered for the pets of anyone on public assistance, and our Free Fix program provides surgery for pets living in the ZIP codes that have the highest number of stray animals. Since opening in 2001, over 37,000 pets have been sterilized in our clinic--which translates into thousands of saved lives!
