PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is the city’s largest rescue and only no-kill shelter, and is working to make Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home. Through its adoption locations, special events, and foster care network, PAWS finds loving homes for thousands of animals each year.

Right now, PAWS has adoptable dogs and cats to fit nearly every lifestyle and personality. They successfully match adopters with pets as unique as they are. Their saying is that there is “A Buddy for Everybody.” To prove that, throughout the month of October, PAWS is offering “Name Your Own Adoption Fee” when you find your best buddy at the shelter.
