Temple Cats! Mar. 12th, 2010 @ 08:46 pm
I started a rescue called Temple Cats to help save the stray and abandoned cats around Temple University - and there are probably hundreds of them, so it's a big job! If you can help in any way (fostering, donating, trapping, advertising, marketing) please check out our website and let me know! And spread the word! www.temple-cats.org

PAWS IS OVERLOADED WITH ANIMALS! HELP! Oct. 21st, 2008 @ 02:03 pm
PAWS takes in over 30,000 animals a year. Yesterday alone we received 54 cats - and only had about 12 adoptions. We need to amp up our adoption rates, now! Spread the word! There are hundreds of beautiful, adoptable cats and dogs at PAWS! Here's just a sample of some of the beautiful animals who need homes. Please, cross-post this and spread the word. The animals need you!

Pictures and Descriptions of Animals HereCollapse )


IF YOU CAN FOSTER OR ADOPT AN ANIMAL: Come to the shelter (111 W. Hunting Park Avenue) immediately. A staff person or foster care volunteer will be thrilled to help you find the right animal(s) for you to take into safety. Foster care and adoption hours are 11 am to 6 pm every day of the week.

Directions to the shelter are available here: http://phillypaws.org/Directions/default.asp

PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a donor-funded division of the Philadelphia Animal Care and Control Association (PACCA) dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals. Taking in nearly 30,000 animals each year, PAWS is dedicated to making Philadelphia a city in which all healthy and treatable animals are guaranteed a home. Supporting PAWS helps fund lifesaving initiatives including adoption and foster care programs, spay and neuter surgeries, low-cost vaccinations, and other community-based programming, all of which help reduce and will ultimately eliminate the unnecessary killing of Philadelphia's animals. For more information, please visit: www.phillypaws.org.

Please Read! Important Info on Animal Control in Philly! Sep. 24th, 2008 @ 11:22 pm
RIght now, there is a lot going on with Animal Control in Philadelphia.  PACCA is in danger of losing their contract with the city, as the health dept has put out an RFP on a contract to start Jan 1 2009, even though PACCA's contract is through June 30, 2009.  Philly PAWS and PACCA have gone leaps and bounds beyond what animal control in philly was doing 5 years ago, and that can't stop. Philly must be No-Kill. There is no lifesaving language in the current RFP, it only calls for "disposal of animals."

And contact these people, too!  http://www.phila.gov/health/Commissioner/CommissionersOffice.html

Please, the only thing that will save the 30,000+ animals that come through animal control each year are concerned citizens.

Many Mom Cats and Babies at PAWS need Your Help! Aug. 25th, 2008 @ 09:02 am
I'm a volunteer at PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, and I've been looking for more places to get the word out about fostering kittens. PAWS/PACCA gets over 30,000 animals a year and right now we are still battling kitten season and usually have between 25 and 40 litters who need to be fostered or they'll be euthanized due to space. I thought there might be people in this community who'd be interested in fostering - please let me know if you are and i can help you out. This is a post I make a couple times a week with pictures i've taken of every litter of kittens in the building, and i post it on craiglist, myspace, facebook, blogs, and anywhere I can find - please let me know if you know of any other good places i might find philly-area foster parents!

» Veg roommate in Philly needed in June
     as of June.

no non-vegan food in the house, no smokers/drugs.

vegan sxe would be preferred, but as long as you don't drink at home/come home trashed, we'd probably still like you.

Rent would be $240/month plus bills, usually no more than $300 total monthly costs(unless some rude houseguest turns the heat up when we tell them not to every day for a month and a half).

South Philly, 7th and Dickinson, walking/biking distance to everything fun and awesome in Philly! 4 seriously awesome vegan housemates!

interested? Message me!

After a full year of rescuing cats and kittens, rutibegga and I decided to make it official and start our own no-kill, volunteer-run rescue group in West Philadelphia: City Kitties! Over the next few months, we plan to expand our efforts, find more volunteers to foster cats, and adopt out as many as possible. We are also in the beginning stages of seeking non-profit status and adding our group to Petfinder.com. You can read more about us, view our adoption application, and see our success stories on our website, www.citykitties.org.

Please help us get started! Buy a few of our 1-inch buttons, donate your own crafts/products for sale in our store, or make a donation! Even small amounts are greatly appreciated. Every dollar will help us with start-up costs, as we've been paying out of pocket for food, litter, and medical expenses for a year now. 100% of any contribution you make goes to providing critical care to cats and kittens we rescue from the streets and local kill shelters.

Spread the word to your friends, too! Any publicity would be a great help. If you know folks in the Philadelphia area who would be willing to foster cats or kittens, let us know ( info@citykitties.org). Thanks in advance :)
