Demonstrating a continued show of support for our efforts to help Philadelphia’s most vulnerable animals, the ASPCA has awarded PAWS with a $5,000 grant to rescue and care for homeless kittens. The grant enables us to bolster our foster care program in advance of kitten season, when homeless kittens flood the city’s shelters and the need to save them is greatest.
Every spring and summer, cat and kitten shelter intake spikes dramatically, and a robust effort is needed to keep up with the flow. Donations to PAWS enable us to give these cats and kittens a chance at life by funding rescue, housing, clinical care, foster support, and adoption matches.
Here’s how you can save a life this kitten season:
- Foster: by opening your home for just a few weeks to a litter in need, you will give them the safe haven they need to grow to an adoptive age.
- Donate: Make a contribution to provide medications, food, and housing to the cats and kittens in our care.
- Adopt: we have plenty of kittens and adult cats who are ready for their forever homes. Every adoption creates room at PAWS for a new rescue.
