Philly PAWS Donor Reception – With Special Guest Puppies & Kittens

Philly PAWS Donor Reception was held last Wednesday Friends and supporters of our furry friends gather to celebrate the First Anniversary of the PAWS Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic at their offices in Southwest Philadelphia.
Hostess Dana Spain certainly can smile with pride as her pet project has turned into more than just a hobby, but a life saver for many of our four legged friends, with her is another important friend Eric Cahill.
Claire Morrison says hi to a furry friend that you can adopt as PAWS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is the city’s largest rescue organization and only no-kill shelter, and is working to make Philadelphia a place where 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.

Philly Paws is looking forward to their new mobile adoption trailer which should be on the road soon. Many folks might not be able to make it to an animal shelter or maybe it makes them sad. How to avoid it, a mobile adoption trailer will allow PhillyPaws to bring the pets to you. You’ll be able to visit the shelter pets at various locations throughout Philadelphia while the animals rest comfortably in air-conditioned kennels with fresh water and full lighting. Come in, visit and adopt a pet.
