Through volunteer activities, social media awareness and business partnerships, we support various organizations throughout our beautiful city that all work to enhance the lives of pets in Chicago. Below are just a few of the incredible organizations we support and hope you will too.

Building a community of caring by helping pets and educating people.

A 100% volunteer run, foster based, non-profit organization committed to helping increase live outcomes for the animals at high kill shelters.

Windy City Paws has partnered with Bow Wow Revolution to help spread awareness about adoption in Chicago. We support their mission of rescuing dogs from high kill shelters through dedicated fosters. Katie has fostered many dogs through Bow Wow Revolution and highly recommends this organization.

OTAT formed in 2008 as a small organization aimed at helping dogs. Over the years due to the dedication of the Board of Directors and volunteers, OTAT has grown exponentially and now runs vaccine clinics, a shelter diversion program, and a bustling adoption program. With over 1,500 adoptions and a new (in 2015) Adoption Center, OTAT is ready and willing to help make Chicago the next no-kill City.

We work with One Tail at a Time to spread awareness about adoption in Chicago and we support their mission to help make Chicago the next no-kill City.
