Penelope is very sweet, active, gentle, and affectionate. She loves
stimulation and would do well in a home with another friendly cat to play
with. She was originally brought to PAWS after being rescued along with
her litter of kittens, who have all been adopted. She is slow to warm up
to new people, but will eventually love to cuddle and sit on your lap once
you gain her trust. She also loves being pet and having her face and belly
rubbed. She does best with consistent feedings and is fastidious about her
litter, so she likes a big box with lots of space to dig.
She may have epilepsy, so she currently takes phenobarbital(dissolved in
food) twice a day to prevent seizures. This medicine is inexpensive and
she is worth the effort! She has been seizure-free since May 2013.
Penelope is in foster care - if you would like to meet her please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization. PAWS pulls at-risk animals from the City of Philadelphia's animal control shelter and adopts them out, either from our adoption center (located at 2nd and Arch Streets), from one of our adoption locations at area PETCO and PetSmart stores, or from our network of foster homes.
PAWS is dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals and is working to make Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.
When you adopt a pet from PAWS you truly save a life!
PAWS' Adoption Center in Old City is open Monday-Friday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 11a.m.-7p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Please reference this animal's ID NUMBER when inquiring about this pet.
All animals adopted from PAWS are up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and microchipped. Adoption fees are as follows: $150 for dogs older than 1 year, $200 for puppies under 1 year, $50 for cats over 6 months of age, and $75 for cats under 6 months of age.
