Thank you Ana and Josh for fostering Landon! This sensitive senior was not happy in the shelter and wouldn't eat or groom herself. She repeatedly got sick and has spent months at our clinic receiving treatment. What she really needed was to leave the shelter altogether! A happier cat means a much quicker recovery, so Landon should be feeling like herself and ready for adoption soon.
Cats are incredibly sensitive, and can often get sick as a result of shelter stress - even when receiving the best care. A temporary foster home makes the difference in the world for these cats!
Fostering a recovering cat isn't hard: it's a commitment of a few weeks and PAWS provides all the vet care. You'll be responsible for giving them their daily meds, plus the usual food, litter, and love. Please visit www.phillypaws.org/foster to get started.
Landon is the 34th animal to leave the building in the PAWS Foster Challenge: www.phillypaws.org/fosterchallenge
The 31st animal of the Foster Challenge is one to celebrate: Sasha has left the building, a year to the day she entered the shelter!
Thank you Shanna and friend for taking in this special girl. Now that she has a foster home to relax in, we can learn more about her neurological condition and what that means for her behavior and quality of life. To top it off, she leaves behind an empty cage that we can use to rescue the next cat in need.
31 out, 119 to go toward our goal of saving 150 lives by August 8th. Join the PAWS Foster Challenge: www.phillypaws.org/fosterchallenge #PAWSFosterChallenge
30 lives have been saved so far in the 2016 PAWS Foster Challenge!
#29 and #30 are Jesse and Tulip, who were found in a garbage can in Southwest Philly. Now, they've gone from trash to treasure thanks to John and Nicole! They have fostered several adult cats with PAWS before, but this time they decided to switch it up and take kittens. By fostering, they've opened a space for us to rescue another set of kittens in their place.
Follow their lead and help us reach our goal of 150: www.phillypaws.org/fosterchallenge #PAWSFosterChallenge
Some strange creatures have been appearing around here...
Here's an easy way to help PAWS while you're catching Pokemon: download the Walk for a Dog app and money will be donated to rescue for every mile you walk. It can run in the background while you play, won't cost you anything, and you don't need a dog to use it.
