Great Hearts Initiatives | Paws and Claws Chicago Rescue


Paws and Claws Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to preventing and alleviating the suffering caused by abuse, neglect, and overpopulation. We help dogs and cats mentally and physically heal, and give them a chance to find love, a full life, and a forever home.

Our focus is on rescuing orphaned neonatal kittens, nursing kittens with their mothers, under-socialized cats, and dogs who have been at animal care and control facilities for too long. We see ourselves as the crossing guards for these vulnerable animals, helping them get from their past, whether that be from a traumatic home, a kennel, or a euthanasia list, to a safe and kind human who will love them.

We are based in Evanston, but serve all of Chicago and it’s suburbs including, but not limited to: Morton Grove, Skokie, Wilmette, Des Plaines and Lincolnwood. Our cats and dogs come from all over the Chicagoland area, from Southern Illinois and beyond.
