People of all ages can make a difference in the lives of homeless animals – especially kids! We are incredibly grateful for the kind support of some very inspiring young people who have helped PAWS save lives. Through efforts all their own, they have raised money, collected supplies, and increased awareness to help Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. We thank them for supporting animals in need and for proving that anyone with a kind heart can make a big difference.
