PAWS needs your help!
Hello, Philadelphia dog-lovers! I’m sure you’ve heard of PAWS. They are in dire need of people to take in dogs from their shelters. Right now! There is currently an overload of dogs. If you can’t commit to a long-term situation, perhaps you could foster. It could save a life!
Directly from their email:
IF YOU CAN FOSTER, RESCUE, OR ADOPT AN ANIMAL: Come to the shelter (111 W. Hunting Park Avenue) immediately. A staff person or volunteer will be thrilled to help you find the right animal(s) for you to take into safety. Assistance will be available from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day of the week. To make special arrangements to come at another time of day, please email Natalie at Natalie@phillypaws.org (please email only as a last resort; Natalie is inundated. It is best to just come directly to the shelter.)
PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is the lifesaving force behind the Philadelphia Animal Care and Control Association (PACCA), the City of Philadelphia’s contracted animal care and control shelter, which takes in approximately 30,000 orphaned animals each year and operates the highest volume shelter in the region. PAWS is working toward making Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home. Supporting PAWS helps fund lifesaving initiatives including adoption and foster care programs, spay and neuter surgeries, low-cost vaccinations, and other community-based programming, all of which help reduce and will ultimately eliminate the unnecessary killing of Philadelphia’s animals.
