PAWS' Old City Adoption Center

PAWS’ Adoption Center, in the Old City section of Philadelphia, is a shelter like no other. It houses adoptable pets in a quiet, boutique-style setting and is open seven days a week. Typically, dozens of cats live there while they wait for their forever homes. Cats live in community rooms or individual units, depending on their personality and preferences. Staff and volunteers provide daily care, exercise, and TLC, and most residents have a view of passersby and neighborhood activity. Since opening in 2008, the adoption center has matched thousands of animals with loving homes, raised awareness of the urgent need for adoption and foster care, and enabled countless people to join our mission by donating or volunteering.
