PAWS Adoption Center, in the Old City section of Philadelphia, is a shelter like no other. It houses adoptable pets in a quiet, boutique-style setting and is open seven days a week. Typically, 2-3 dogs and dozens of cats live there while they wait for their forever homes. Cats live in community rooms or cages, depending on their personality and preferences, and each dog lives in a room of its own. Staff and volunteers provide daily care, exercise, and TLC, and most residents have a view of passersby and neighborhood activity. Since opening in 2008, the adoption center has matched thousands of animals with loving homes, raising awareness of the urgent need for adoption and foster care, and enabling countless people to join our mission by donating or volunteering.
