Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation Awards Grant

Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs FoundationThe Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation has generously made a $1,500 grant to PAWS in support of our efforts to spay and neuter the city’s most at-risk pets. The funds specifically will cover the cost of a Vital Signs Monitor, an essential piece of equipment in performing surgeries at our Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic.

Their support enables us to rescue and find homes for more shelter animals, prevent the birth of unwanted litters, and assist disadvantaged pet owners.

All of our efforts are aimed at reducing Philadelphia’s homeless pet population, and ultimately making Philadelphia a no-kill city where every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.


The Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation is committed to making life more bearable for children, families, and pets, in need of a helping paw. With the sale of each full-sized Bearemy’s Kennel Pals® friend — a collection of Build-A-Bear Workshop® plush dogs — one dollar is donated to domestic pet programs including local animal shelters, stray pet rescue and rehabilitation organizations, and pet education programs around the country. These funds are available to qualified non-profit organizations in the United States and Canada. Visit for more information.
