Paw It Forward with The Landenberger Family Foundation
Celebrate the love you share with your pets by paying it forward so others can find — or preserve — that same joy.
Our pets mean the world to us. They are part of our families and play a profound role in our lives. Now, imagine making all that love possible for another pet and another family. That is the spirit of Paw it Forward.
This year, we are thrilled to introduce you to our friends at The Landenberger Family Foundation — our matching donors for Paw It Forward. The Landenberger Family Foundation was established by William Landenberger, the last member of a family with roots in Philadelphia since before the nation’s founding, having fought in the American Revolution. The Foundation honors the legacy of its namesake by generously supporting charities located in and near Philadelphia that are dedicated to civic improvements, historical preservation, medical research, education, and animal welfare.
The Landenberger Family Foundation was so moved to support the special bond between people and pets that they are matching every Paw It Forward gift, up to $25,000!
Together, we are searching for:
- A HERO for every rescued pet in PAWS’ care
- A PROTECTOR for each community pet whose family needs support to keep them at home where they are loved
To thank you for providing care to Philadelphia’s pets and families in need, we will send some right back to you! You’ll receive a special care package, full of treats for you and your pets to enjoy.
