We have decided that we are going to start donating to charity, a percentage of our profits, and we will be doing this each and every month with a different charity, for the foreseeable future. Each month, we will use a different charity which we find over at Charity Navigator, which determines which ones are verified, transparent, and actually helping their target.
This month, we chose PAWS Chicago, which funds a no-kill shelter in Chicago.
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.
