PAWS Chicago was founded in 1997 to help homeless animals and to raise public awareness toward ending the mass euthanasia of shelter animals. The organization now operates multiple no-kill adoption centers in Chicago, receiving more than 5400 combined cats and dogs in 2019 and arranging adoptions for 5,331.

The growth and evolution of PAWS Chicago has been driven by public awareness and the recognition that every person can take action to help homeless pets.

Portrait of Gabby


In 2000, PAWS Chicago opened the Lurie Clinic. Located in Little Village, the Lurie Clinic serves Chicago’s high-stray, under-resourced communities, where the majority of stray and unwanted pets originate. The clinic and their mobile unit provides free spay / neuter services for feral cat trappers to prevent cats on the street from breeding using a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) approach.

Portrait of Gabby


Gabby came from PAWS Chicago in January 2021. She's 3+ years old and missing one of her paws. None of the paperwork was sure of where she came from or what has happened in her past. I selected her as part of the clear the older cats program.

Images shared in this post feature the 1980 Canon FD 50mm f/1.2L lens adapted to a Sony a7II 24MP mirrorless digital camera. The lens does not communicate to the camera where the Flickr host page for each image includes the shutterspeed and ISO, but the aperture is missing. I've been working with manual aperture settings between f/2 and f/5.6.

Sharp images of a very lucky cat. While living on a farm in the 90’s we took part in a TNR program where we saved and rehomed 18 cats. It’s a wonderful service that these organizations provide. And Gabby is sure a fine example of a great outcome.

Thank you junglejim1949, AprilArt, Ourspolair, Red Sky At Night! I learned more about PAWS from their website last evening pulling together some caption content for this post and another I've drafted for later. I'd thought of them as an adoption resource, but really their primary focus is reducing unwanted animals via spay / neuter. The fees and donations they collect cover operations of the shelters and clinic, focused specifically the animal operations. Gabby is starting to get comfortable, but still not forcing her way onto my lap or laying across the keyboard.

Thank you merrytexan, John, jimvanells, Bill, Stan, Ernesto! So far, Gabby likes here places to sleep, a corner of the bed or the several self-heating mats on a few couches. I wonder if she'll ever want to be on the desk to compete for the keyboard.
