Urgent Animals

Meet the PAWS animals who are most in need of homes! Whether they have special needs or just keep getting overlooked, they need extra help finding loving families. They are also excellent candidates for foster care.

Can’t adopt? Pick a dog or cat from the list and share their information with friends. You never know when or how a great match will be made!

Every animal we adopt out creates room at our no-kill shelter to save another, so each adoption truly saves a life. Visit www.phillypaws.org/adopt or contact adoptions@phillypaws.org for more information on adopting.
