What could be better than playing with adorable puppies? Combining it with an awesome Annual Festival event of course. Saturday, November 7th, PAWS, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals, will join us at the Painted Bride to help welcome Rita Mae Brown – author of Animal Magnetism. PAWS will host an animal adoption at the Painted Bride from 3-6 P.M. that day.
If you simply can’t wait that long to show your animal appreciation, come to the PAWS Mutt Strut October 31 at FDR Park in Philadelphia. Bring a furry four-legged friend to walk or come “rent” a PAWS dog for the day.
Dog walk and adoption festival, includes: “Ask the Vet,” pet portraits, pet costume contest, “spooky” obstacle course & bobbing for bones, training tips, pet grooming, plus music, food & fun for the whole family!
You’ll be helping to raise funds and awareness for PAWS’ efforts to save
Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals. People looking to
adopt a pet will be able to find a lifelong friend. All participants get a
PAWS eco-bag and dog bandana on day of event and will be eligible to win even more prizes!
