Our final tally, and a new PAWS record: 219 adoptions in the month of August!
Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, to everyone who joined in the effort. Every time an animal leaves the building, it opens up a space for us to rescue a new one from the city shelter.
Late summer is normally the slowest time of the year for adoptions, while shelter intake is highest and the need for rescue most urgent. We turned a challenging month into a huge success thanks to additional capacity at our new Northeast adoption center, an army of foster parents, volunteers who staffed adoption events around the city and helped facilitate adoptions, generous supporters who donated toward our efforts, and of course, adoptive families who opened their homes. Here's to more lifesaving to come!
The 217th adoption of August: Herman found his forever home at the very end of the day Sunday!
When Herman met adopter Terra, the bond was instant as he curled up in her lap. Herman was found as a stray in Southwest Philly in July, and now he's back in his old neighborhood as a well-loved family member. He jumped right into his carrier, ready to go home!
