The Pennsylvania SPCA’s mission is to protect animals, prevent cruelty, and improve health and quality of life for animals throughout Pennsylvania. For over 150 years, the organization has been rescuing animals from cruelty and neglect, rehabilitating them medically and behaviorally, and placing them with new loving families. The mission is brought to life through extensive programing and services that extend beyond the walls of its shelters and into the community through outreach, advocacy, and humane law enforcement work.
Funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization will enable Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) to both help at-risk senior dogs remain in their homes where they are loved and to rescue senior dogs that enter the city shelter. This program will offer subsidized (free or reduced-cost) veterinary care to 40 senior dog owners who could not otherwise afford it and support the rescue and care of 15 senior dogs like Aunt Fern who could not remain with their previous owners.
Since 1976, Animal Rescue, Inc. (ARI) has been a refuge for homeless dogs and cats. No animal is ever euthanized due to medical expense or the inconvenience of care. While ARI’s main goal is to find responsible homes for residents, they work hard to ensure all animals receive the level of care they need, thanks to the help of their loyal staff and dedicated volunteers.
SPARRO is not your standard rescue. It is a temporary home for wayward, abandoned, unwanted or abused dogs. All dogs that enter their organization are treated as members of the family.
Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue (DVGRR) was founded in 1995 as a breed-specific rescue; however, with significantly more dogs needing homes, DVGRR has expanded to include rescuing Labrador Retrievers, Goldendoodles, Labradoodles and some mixed breeds. Since their inception, they have successfully found homes for more than 6,000 dogs.
