Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society

The Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is the city’s largest no-kill shelter and operates a high-volume, low-cost clinic serving pet owners and rescue organizations that lack access to affordable basic veterinary care.

Programs/Services Offered:

PAWS provides extensive low-cost vet care, including spay/neuter services and vaccines. Through a system of foster homes and adoption centers, the organization finds homes for thousands of pets that would otherwise stay on the streets or be euthanized.

Student Opportunities:

Volunteer work is available at PAWS’ adoption centers and the Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic, which also operates as a shelter. For further information and the volunteer application, visit
