The studio, which was founded in 1974 by five artists, had grown from serving a small group of potters to providing services for over 35,000 people on an annual basis.

    Where you can do puppy and kitty yoga in Philadelphia - Philly
    Yoga has been scientifically shown to reduce both stress and feelings of depression. Now picture striking a downward dog as a real - and really adorable - dog nuzzles your nose from the edge of your mat. Unless you're allergic to pups, it's doubtful a smile won't automatically spread across your face.

'Lonely hearts' adoption for dogs who don't get picked

Where: PSPCA Fishtown Center at 1546 Frankford Ave., 19125

    'Lonely hearts' adoption for dogs who don't get picked
    Some dogs up for adoption are perfectly wonderful, but just don't "show well," whether it's because they're shy, or nervous, or not immediately beautiful. The PSCPA staffers who know and love these long-termers are hosting a special event to try to find them a forever home.
