73 Matches Made: Clear the Shelters a Huge Success!


On August 18th, PAWS participated in Clear the Shelters, a nationwide fee-waived adoption event that that matched thousands of homeless pets with new families across the country. Animal lovers lined up outside of our adoption centers to find their new best friend, and the foot traffic didn’t stop until we closed.

The day was an overwhelming success for Philadelphia’s animals: PAWS sent home 14 dogs and 59 cats with their forever families in just 9 hours, and over 1,400 pets left shelters across the Delaware Valley!

Piña Colada, above, was one of 73 PAWS animals who found their forever homes. She was found in Northeast Philly covered in matted fur, but now she has a lifetime of love ahead with the Read family in Bucks County.
