#1 West Philly Paws

“Working to make Philadelphia a No-Kill city.”

These wonderful people help cats and dogs in need by providing foster homes for animals awaiting adoption and providing veterinary care. Second, they have several of their own clinics that care for these animals. Foster care is also a much better alternative to shelters since the animals stay in the home of a volunteer and aren’t confined to a cage in a crowded shelter. 

 As a result of their efforts, in 2017 they saved almost 3,200 homeless animals and gave vet services to 34,000

I personally adopted two adorable kitties from West Philly Paws. The light grey kitty’s name is Sterling because he’s a fancy silver boy. The dark grey kitty’s name is Greedo because we started calling him that as a joke and it stuck.

Philly No-Kill is an organization that’s dedicated to saving the lives of animals who would otherwise not have a good chance. This orginization helps keep animals out of shelters, and connect pet owners to low cost vet care.

They offer a wide range of resources like emergency housing, instructions on how to rejoin a found pet with their family, how to find YOUR lost pet, and help if you are in the unfortunate position of having to surrender a pet. 

They do good stuff.

This is a shelter for former racing greyhounds. They help find them homes and care for them while they’re waiting to be adopted. You can donate money, supplies, or even stop by their shelter and volunteer to walk a greyhound. 

olunteers who walk greyhounds are super important because exercise is vital to a greyhound’s overall health. Help a furry friend by stopping by and giving them some fresh air!
