Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society


PAWS is committed to leading Philadelphia towards becoming a no-kill city. Many shelters today put down treatable and healthy animals for a number of reasons, but PAWS mission is to lower that number. They rescue thousands of homeless, abandoned, and unwanted dogs and cats every year, and work on finding loving homes for everyone of them. They are dedicated to saving the lives of animals everyday.
