These pipsqueaks are the 57th, 58th, and 59th animals to leave the shelter in the 2016 #PAWSFosterChallenge. They were dropped off at ACCT Philly, taken in by PAWS when space at ACCT ran out, then went into in foster care with Carmen, where they'll grow to an adoptable age.
We're challenging you to help us save 150 lives by August 8! All you need is a few weeks and a little extra space. Open your home and become a foster parent: www.phillypaws.org/fosterchallenge
Thank you Aleela and Michael for fostering kittens!
The 48th, 49th, and 50th animals to leave in the Foster Challenge are a trio of siblings who were found on the street in Southwest Philadelphia. In a few short weeks they'll grow big enough for adoption, and in the meantime, we're using their vacant shelter space to rescue a new litter in need.
Help us reach our goal of 150 lives saved: www.phillypaws.org/fosterchallenge #PAWSFosterChallenge
Thanks to everybody who came out for #ClearTheShelters Day!
Our adoption centers were packed and we sent lots of animals home, including Kareem who'd waited two months to be adopted. Thanks to the Placid family for giving him a home, and to everyone else who adopted. What a weekend! www.phillypaws.org/adopt
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
