Review for Red Paw Emergency Relief Team, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I decided that I first wanted to explore the idea of adopting a cat, the one thing that was most important to me was finding an organization whose mission I could get behind 100% and who were doing something unique among pet-charities. I first came into contact with Red Paw through their listings on Adopt-a-Pet and arranged a visit to meet a few of the adoptables. I ended up falling in love with 'Coco Kitty' (who I have just decided to call Kitty), a roughly 12 year old dark brown/black girl who was just begging to be spoiled rotten.

Every person that I interacted with at Red Paw made sure that I wasn't going to be "stuck", they made sure to arm me with the all the information and materials I needed to give Kitty a loving forever home. Seeing firsthand the dedication and passion that Jen, Sarah, Lori, and others at Red Paw have for what they do is truly amazing. After following the organization on Facebook, I learned that the supporters, donors, volunteers, and people served are a community - one that provides a much needed service to the community.

The amount of work that Red Paw staff and volunteers do on a day-to-day basis is inspiring and help build a bridge between larger organizations that often don't feel as personal, and the community they serve. The Philadelphia community has much thanks to give Red Paw, and they deserve every accolade that they are given.
