The Petco Foundation along with The Ellen DeGeneres Show and the natural pet food company Halo, Purely for Pets, announced PAWS as one of the winners of their Holiday Wishes Grant Campaign on December 23. Their donation of $5,000 will support PAWS’ lifesaving efforts to rescue and care for Philadelphia’s neediest pets.
Grants were awarded based on success stories of adopted animals; PAWS’ winning submission was Melly, a rescued pit bull who has gone on to provide companionship and comfort to military veterans.
PAWS was selected as one of just 34 winners out of 4,500 applications. We are grateful for the support and eager to save more lives as a result!
