Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The grant was used to vaccinate rescued animals in PAWS' care.

The grant provided needed vaccines for our rescued animals, which enabled us to adopt them out to loving homes and rescue new animals in their place. Every PAWS animal receives vaccines, spay/neuter, and other needed veterinary care before going to their new homes. We are grateful to the Shot at Life program for supporting our lifesaving efforts in this vital way.

How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Mr. Marbles was found as a stray in West Philadelphia and rescued by PAWS. We took him in and provided him with his neuter surgery, microchip, flea treatment, and vaccinations. Mr. Marbles found a loving adopter two weeks after his rescue and now lives happily in Center City Philadelphia. After he went home, PAWS used his space to rescue a new cat in his place.
