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 other pets and people… that is the spirit of our Paw it Forward campaignreturning this summer for its third year.

From August 6-8, we’ll ask you to celebrate the love you share with your pets by paying it forward so others can find — or preserve — that same joy.

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.

Supporters at the “Puppy Love” level and higher will receive an exclusive invitation to our first-ever Paw it Forward Summer Soirée on Thursday, August 22. Join us at a gorgeous, private Center City venue to mix and mingle with fellow PAWS donors and animal lovers who support this important cause. Nosh on light seasonal bites, sip refreshing cocktails, and for extra fun, get a custom pet portrait drawn by Jie Kuang, owner and artist at Char and Whiskers. Additional event details and RSVP instructions will be shared after your commitment to Paw it Forward. 

We look forward to celebrating with you as we ensure the safety and care for cherished pets and the people who love them!
