PAWS IS OVERLOADED WITH ANIMALS! HELP! [Oct. 21st, 2008|02:05 pm]
The Alternative Philadelphia LJ Community

PAWS takes in over 30,000 animals a year. Yesterday alone we received 54 cats - and only had about 12 adoptions. We need to amp up our adoption rates, now! Spread the word! There are hundreds of beautiful, adoptable cats and dogs at PAWS! Here's just a sample of some of the beautiful animals who need homes. Please, cross-post this and spread the word. The animals need you!

Pictures and Descriptions of Animals HereCollapse )


IF YOU CAN FOSTER OR ADOPT AN ANIMAL: Come to the shelter (111 W. Hunting Park Avenue) immediately. A staff person or foster care volunteer will be thrilled to help you find the right animal(s) for you to take into safety. Foster care and adoption hours are 11 am to 6 pm every day of the week.

Directions to the shelter are available here: http://phillypaws.org/Directions/default.asp

PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a donor-funded division of the Philadelphia Animal Care and Control Association (PACCA) dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals. Taking in nearly 30,000 animals each year, PAWS is dedicated to making Philadelphia a city in which all healthy and treatable animals are guaranteed a home. Supporting PAWS helps fund lifesaving initiatives including adoption and foster care programs, spay and neuter surgeries, low-cost vaccinations, and other community-based programming, all of which help reduce and will ultimately eliminate the unnecessary killing of Philadelphia's animals. For more information, please visit: www.phillypaws.org.

Animal Control In Philadelphia [Sep. 24th, 2008|11:29 pm]
The Alternative Philadelphia LJ Community


RIght now, there is a lot going on with Animal Control in Philadelphia.  PACCA is in danger of losing their contract with the city, as the health dept has put out an RFP on a contract to start Jan 1 2009, even though PACCA's contract is through June 30, 2009.  Philly PAWS and PACCA have gone leaps and bounds beyond what animal control in philly was doing 5 years ago, and that can't stop. Philly must be No-Kill. There is no lifesaving language in the current RFP, it only calls for "disposal of animals."

Read more here - http://phillypaws.org/savelivesnow/

Join the cause here - http://phillynokill.com/NoKill/Welcome.html

And contact these people, too!  http://www.phila.gov/health/Commissioner/CommissionersOffice.html

Please, the only thing that will save the 30,000+ animals that come through animal control each year are concerned citizens.

job/resume [Sep. 10th, 2008|01:24 pm]
The Alternative Philadelphia LJ Community

can anyone suggest FREE resume reviews in the area? i know some schools don't usually like to help you unless you actually took classes there, but asking friends for help doesn't always have the same effect as professionals.

i need help with this ASAP - burlington county college has a resume workshop on 9/24, but there's a huge career fair at lincoln financial field on 9/17 (and i'd like to apply at other places within the next week).

Many Mom Cats and Babies at PAWS need Your Help! [Aug. 25th, 2008|09:01 am]
The Alternative Philadelphia LJ Community

I'm a volunteer at PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, and I've been looking for more places to get the word out about fostering kittens. PAWS/PACCA gets over 30,000 animals a year and right now we are still battling kitten season and usually have between 25 and 40 litters who need to be fostered or they'll be euthanized due to space. I thought there might be people in this community who'd be interested in fostering - please let me know if you are and i can help you out. This is a post I make a couple times a week with pictures i've taken of every litter of kittens in the building, and i post it on craiglist, myspace, facebook, blogs, and anywhere I can find - please let me know if you know of any other good places i might find philly-area foster parents!

My bike got stolen! Blue Bianchi Brava 2006 [Aug. 19th, 2008|01:54 pm]
The Alternative Philadelphia LJ Community
My Bianchi Brava got stolen last night, between Aug 18th and Aug 19th. It was locked to a street sign at the crossing between 19th and Pine St. All that was left was one of the bar ends, lying on the street next to one half of my U-lock.

•    Dark blue
•    Misses left half of left front brake plastic
•    Misses one bar end (those little round things in the end holes of the handle bar)
•    52/53 cm
•    Has one Gator tire (red stripes)
•    Had a black shoulder pad with gray diagonal lines on one end (Reload)

I filed a police report this morning (number 0809044184). If you see this bike, please call 911. The police WILL come and they will hold it.

This bike means the world to me. I will pay to get it back. Please contact me if you have any information.
