I began working with PAWS in the summer of 2012 and instantly fell in love with the team's dedication, the organization's amazing work, the support of volunteers and local business, and too many animals to count. Just a few months later, I adopted my little buddy, Sophie - an underweight kitten with a bent tail caused by a break when she was a stray. I was cleaning up the kitten room at the adoption center when she jumped on my back - I was immediately hooked and she came home with me the next day.
PAWS is Philadelphia’s largest no-kill shelter and is working to make Philadelphia a no-kill city. Each year, we rescue thousands of homeless animals and match them with loving adoptive and foster homes. We also operate two high-volume, low-cost clinics, giving disadvantaged pet owners and rescue organizations access to affordable spay/neuter surgery and basic veterinary care. Serving more than 24,000 animals annually, the clinics enable pets to remain cherished family members rather than face abandonment and prevent the birth of countless litters.
PAWS will serve more animals in 2015 than ever before, and we are 100% donor funded. Our lifesaving efforts depend entirely on the generosity of our supporters. Please join us in making Philadelphia a safer place for the most vulnerable pets. They won't make it without you.
