Philadelphia, PA-Tons of cats/kittens need foster/adopt ASAP

PAWS is full of kittens that need urgent foster care in order to survive! Volunteer foster parents are crucial to the survival of our young kittens, as foster care provides a safe place for the animals to recover and find good adoptive homes, and frees up much needed space at the shelter for other needy animals. PAWS receives many kittens too young to be adopted out yet that need foster care until they are old enough for spay/neuter surgery. We especially need foster homes for momma cats with young nursing kittens, and for orphaned newborns that need to be bottle fed. We also need foster homes for young kittens without mothers who are eating on their own. If you have a spare room in your house please consider helping us to get these adorable babies and their mommas out!
