Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS)

Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society - PAWSPhiladelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is a non-profit animal rescue organization dedicated to saving homeless, abandoned, and unwanted dogs and cats in the Philadelphia area. As the city’s largest no-kill animal shelter, they provide affordable veterinary care to pet owners and rescue organizations through operating a high-volume and low-cost clinic. Moreover, they provide spaying/neutering services to disadvantaged pet owners, thus, lowering the risk of birth of unwanted litters as well as pet abandonment.

In their advocacy to lead Philadelphia towards becoming a no-kill city, the organization is committed to conducting comprehensive rescue and prevention efforts through:

* Pulling at-risk animals out of the city’s shelter

*Placing these furry friends in loving adoptive and foster homes

* Providing low-cost or even no-cost veterinary services

As a privately funded organization, PAWS relies heavily on the help of generous people through donations and volunteer works in order to carry out their mission and other initiatives such as:

*Adoption and foster care programs

* Spay and neuter surgeries

* Low-cost vaccinations

Another way to support the organization is through donating items in their wish list including bleach, laundry detergent, paper towels, trash bags (heavy duty/contractor), clay cat litter (non-clumping), Kong brand dog toys, cat and kitten toys, fleece blankets, new/used dog crates and carriers (all sizes), as well as canned dog, cat, and kitten food (no dry food, please).
