It's Franky's last night in foster care before he goes to his new adoptive home.
From his foster mom: "I can't believe you're leaving soon. I will surely miss the way you welcome me home with your cute little 'mew.' I'm happy that you found your new forever home and it was a pleasure to foster you."
Sending gratitude to the foster parents who do the tough (and rewarding!) work of letting go after caring for fosters. Seeing them happy with their new families makes it worth it every time. www.phillypaws.org/foster
Henry found his new best friend! This PAWS cat was found on the street at around 8 years old, saved in coordination with Project M.E.O.W (Make Every One Wanted), and cared for by PAWS South Philly Volunteers. He now has a happy life and his very own kid!
Chilly Willy's stunning transformation! From our vet staff who cared for him:
"Chilly Willy was dropped off at our adoption center in Old City a few months ago after someone found him injured outside in the snow. He was transported to our clinic where we assessed his condition; he had a bloody nose, scrapes, bruises, and road rash on his abdomen and legs, and he was emaciated. Our best guess was that he had been hit by a car and dragged. He was in such good spirits, though, so we started him on medications for his pain and infections. He also battled a fever of over 105 degrees for days! Top: Chilly's first photo at our adoption center and his first meal at our clinic. Bottom: progress after a couple weeks in our care, and finally his big photo shoot before going up for adoption."
Chilly Willy is now in excellent health and ready for a home. He's currently at PAWS 2nd and Arch, so go meet him!
Ali has left the building! Found as a stray in the middle of January, she came to PAWS and finally found a family to call her own. Here she is with her new mom: she's joining a full house where someone will be home with her all day!
She waited months for the simplest reasons: she didn't get along with other pets and needed basic training and manners to be the best she could be. Her new family is committed to giving her the training and enrichment she craves: they were worth the wait!
