PAWS rescue Emmy is donning her party shades for a very special reason: today marks the tenth birthday of our Old City adoption center! Emmy was one of the first animals to find her forever home at our 2nd and Arch location. The center was the first of its kind in Philadelphia when it opened its doors in 2008, and since then over 8,700 animals have been adopted to loving homes from that location. Emmy has enjoyed ten years of comfort and love with the staff member who adopted her, and we look forward to another ten years of happy beginnings like hers! Do you have a PAWS adoption story? Share in the comments!
