Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society
PAWS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is Philadelphia's largest no-kill shelter and is working to make Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home. Through its adoption locations, special events, and foster care network, PAWS finds loving homes for thousands of animals each year.In March 2010, PAWS opened a low-cost, high-volume spay/neuter and wellness clinic serving pet owners and rescues in an effort to keep pets healthy and reduce the homeless pet population. Located in the Grays Ferry section of the city, the Clinic serves pet owners who have difficulty affording or do not have access to basic veterinary care (sterilization, vaccinations, treatments for upper respiratory infections/parasites/fleas, etc.) and rescue organizations that need affordable spay/neuter surgery and basic veterinary care to carry out their lifesaving work. Support for PAWS funds lifesaving initiatives including adoption and foster care programs, spay/neuter surgeries, low-cost vaccinations, and other efforts, all of which help reduce and will ultimately eliminate the unnecessary killing of Philadelphia's animals. Donations to PAWS are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Good in Home With
Are you ready for some Foosball?!? After a quick trip to the airport without any identification, Foosball was bounced by the TSA and found fending for himself still in the area. Super friendly, cuddly, and social, Foosball was found with a pretty gnarly wound on his back right side that he is still healing from and being treated for. Because of that, and it's unknown cause, Foosball should be the only animal in the home for a few month just to be safe (in case it was from an unexpected encounter with another animal). He has been very confident while in our care, so he should transition well into pretty much any type of home, and could likely be welcoming of a furry friend in the near future when he's allowed to have roommates!
