One of their locations, located at 2900 Grays Ferry Ave., is ready to undergo renovations so PAWS can continue to better the lives of animals in the city. To do this, they have launched a fundraising campaign.

The goal is to raise at least $7,500. What will this money go towards? PAWS has plans for the creation of a new dog adoption and foster care office, along with the need for a new commercial-grade washing machine, new computers and some new furniture. The organization is a non-profit, so they are always accepting donations to help maintain the day-to-day operations of the city’s largest no-kill shelter.

As of Friday morning, the donation drive for these renovations has raised a total of $3,095 from the public, which is then being doubled thanks to two anonymous PAWS donors who plan to match any donation made to this cause. So far that means they’ve already raised $6,190 of the $7,500 goal.
