What a difference a warm bed and a meal makes: this mama was found on the streets of South Philly nursing a litter of two. She found safety at PAWS and is constantly purring and kneading while her kittens nurse. We are looking for a foster home for this incredibly sweet family! Please fill out the form at www.phillypaws.org/foster if you can help.
Thank you George, Brittnie, Toby, Michelle, Ron & Susan, Linda, Shirley, Dave, two anonymous donors, and the family of Mogwai, Oatmeal, Raisin, and Omelette for donating to help us save kittens! Here are PAWS staff members with just some of the supplies your donations help purchase (plus a few of the more rambunctious kittens in our maternity room!).
Here's what we spend each month on just a few of the necessary items to run our kitten maternity rooms: Litter – $377 Litter boxes – $300 Medical gauze – $15 Gloves – $50 Syringes – $70 Heating pads – $15 Kitten food – $65
Pepper is sneezing! She was found as a stray in South Philly with her mom and sibling. They have upper respiratory infections and need a foster home to get better. In the meantime, they're being cared for in our Grays Ferry maternity room. To foster them, fill out the form at www.phillypaws.org/foster.
If you can't foster, please make a donation toward their medications and care! Chip in here: www.crowdrise.com/paws-savingpets2015/fundraiser/pawskittens
Potato Chip came in to Philadelphia's animal control shelter at 6 weeks old, suffering from a severe upper respiratory infection and eye infections. He had been living on the streets and had likely never received veterinary care in his short life. His eye infections were so bad that both of his eyes had ruptured.
Without PAWS as a safe haven, kittens this sick face almost certain euthanasia, especially during "kitten season" when there is barely space in Philly's shelters even for the healthy ones.
We're happy to report that his infections are almost all cleared up, and although he is blind, he's on his way to a long, healthy life.
We rely 100% on donations to purchase the medications that saved Potato Chip's life and so many others.
