About PAWS:
The 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 the city's largest rescue organization and only 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 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 and rescue organizations that need affordable spay/neuter surgery and basic veterinary care to carry out their lifesaving work. It also includes housing for homeless dogs and cats, enabling PAWS to save even more animals from being needlessly killed in shelters. In 2009, PAWS rescued nearly 2,800 homeless cats and dogs. In conjunction with PAWS’ large and growing adoption and foster care programs, the Clinic is having both an immediate and a long-term effect on the number of stray and unwanted animals born and surrendered to shelters.
 
Support for PAWS funds lifesaving initiatives including adoption and foster care programs, spay and neuter surgeries, low-cost vaccinations, and other efforts, all of which help reduce and will ultimately eliminate the unnecessary killing of Philadelphia's animals.
