Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PAWS adoptions are by appointment only at our Grays Ferry shelter or through foster homes. (PAWS’ adoption centers are closed to browsing until further notice.)
Due to an extremely high volume of adoption applications, we are prioritizing applications for specific urgent animals.
– If you are interested in adopting an urgent animal featured on our social media, please submit your online application AND email firstname.lastname@example.org
– If you are interested in adopting a specific pet that is in foster care, please submit your online application and then reach out to the foster parent directly (their contact info is noted in the pet’s bio on our adoption page) to let them know you have done so.
– Applications for general adoption approval will be reviewed as time allows and you will be contacted by staff once approved.
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding!
