PAWS Chicago is a 20-year-old nonprofit focused on making Chicago a “no kill” community for dogs and cats. In support of this mission, the organization adopts out over 5,000 animals annually but is much more than a rescue shelter. Its community outreach and prevention programs include a mobile spay and neuter clinic, a door-to-door outreach team, pet food bank, and cat colony caretakers to keep animals from entering the pound. PAWS Chicago performs over 17,000 spay and neuter surgeries each year, which it subsidizes in low-income areas with limited veterinary access. As the $11 million organization has grown, its management team needed a better way to track separate financials for all of these programs, while still producing the standard nonprofit tax reports.
