Red Paw Hosting Adoption for Fire Rescue Pets

The Red Paw Emergency Relief Team is hosting an adoption open house next weekend to find new homes for over a dozen animals displaced by fire.

Red Paw will be at Central Bark Doggy Day Care in Philadelphia on Sunday, Sept. 13 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Both dogs and cats are available for adoption.

"Red Paw's mission is to reunite pets with their families once they recover from a disaster," said Red Paw founder Jen Leary. "Unfortunately, that's not always possible, so that's what this event is for."

There are currently 16 pets up for adoption as Red Paw hopes to find loving homes for all the rescues before another wave of animals inevitably gets rescued. The animals are currently in foster homes.
