PAWS is dedicated to making Philadelphia a no-kill city. PAWS is the city’s largest rescue partner and provider of affordable veterinary care to those who cannot otherwise access it. Each year, PAWS finds loving homes for thousands of animals in need, and enables thousands of families to keep their cherished pets.

Funded from 2019 to 2023

Funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization will enable Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) to both help at-risk senior dogs remain in their homes where they are loved and to rescue senior dogs that enter the city shelter. This program will offer subsidized (free or reduced-cost) veterinary care to 40 senior dog owners who could not otherwise afford it and support the rescue and care of 15 senior dogs like Aunt Fern who could not remain with their previous owners.
