PAWS Saves Record-Breaking 2,800+ Homeless Pets in 2015

The Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society saved more pets in 2015 than it did in any year prior, the organization announced in its 2015 year-in-review post on its website on Wednesday.

A record-breaking 2,854 homeless pets were saved by PAWS in Philadelphia this year, according to the organization, including 64 pets that were sent to new homes Aug. 15 as part of Clear the Shelters, a partnership with NBC10 and Telemundo62. PAWS said that day boasted its highest adoption numbers in the organization's history.

Beyond the pets PAWS saved, the organization said it also served its 100,000th animal since 2009 in 2015, aided more than 30,000 pets at its low-cost Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic, and performed more than 11,000 spay/neuter surgeries to reduce the number of homeless and unwanted pets entering shelters.
