Red Paw is seeking sponsors for Furs Friday to benefit our programs so that we can continue to provide the residents of Southeastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey with emergency incident response, medical care and wellness, long-term foster care and education at no cost to our clients. Red Paw fills a critical and previously unmet need within human services, animal welfare and emergency first response communities in Southeastern Pennsylvania, through our five program areas:
- Emergency Incident Response, Rescue, and Care
- Fire prevention and Disaster Preparedness Outreach and Education
- Disaster Response Training and Education (1 hour seminars)
- Re-homing animals surrendered to Red Paw’s care (Adoption Marketing and Outreach)
- Informal Responsible Pet Owner Education
We are grateful to the public and privately owned businesses, public service agencies, first response and disaster relief organizations, our peer non-profit organizations and individuals who have aligned with our mission and have so generously helped us since our inception in 2011. Red Paw depends on a network of collaborators, in-kind contributors and the compassion and the continued support of volunteers, donors, and grants to fulfill its mission.
