PAWS relies entirely on individual and corporate donations and foundation grants to perform its lifesaving work. The greater our resources, the more animals we can save and the more services we can provide to the dogs and cats we rescue. By giving generously, you will play a critical role in PAWS’ effort to make Philadelphia a no-kill city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home. Donations to PAWS are used to fund lifesaving initiatives including adoption and foster care, spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, and clinical care for sick or injured animals. PAWS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
