Philly Loves PAWS: Supporting a No-Kill City

A diverse array of restaurants, shops, and service providers throughout the city contribute at least 10% of their proceeds to help make Philadelphia a no-kill city, where every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home. Tito's Handmade Vodka is the proud sponsor of this year's event.

PAWS: Compassionate Care for Philadelphia's Pets

The Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that rescues homeless and at-risk pets in the city. As the largest rescue partner in Philadelphia, PAWS also offers affordable, basic veterinary care to pet owners and rescue organizations lacking access to such services. PAWS annually finds loving homes for thousands of animals in need and enables thousands of families to keep their cherished pets. Visit to learn more about PAWS and their work.
