Meet Pumpkin Spice! She's a real treat with extra flavor. Ms. Spice is looking for 'the one' - she would thrive in a home with someone who has small dog experience. While she can be independent at times, she also loves sitting on your lap and getting petted once she is comfortable with you. She's the type of dog who waits to 'click' with someone - but then, once she's in love, she's got YOU hooked too! 
 
Pumpkin Spice enjoys short walks and visiting the park, and really loves her toys. She would do best with an adult-only household because she likes her toys and food a little too much and doesn't like to share. Ms. Spice will require more patience and training with sharing. 
 
Pumpkin Spice is 90% housebroken and the rest of the time uses her pee pads. Overall she is very sweet, and has lots of love to give! 
 
She gets along well with other dogs, as long as they're polite, and could live with a dog-friendly cat. Pumpkin is pee pad trained!

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 from several locations: our Old City adoption center (2nd and Arch Streets), our Northeast Adoption Center (1810 Grant Avenue); our Wellness Clinic at 2900 Grays Ferry Avenue; our adoption locations at the South Philly and Cottman Avenue PetSmart stores; and, 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!

About PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society

About Our Shelter...

PAWS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is Philadelphia’s largest no-kill shelter and is working to make it a place in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home. PAWS rescues animals at the city’s animal control shelter that are in the greatest danger of being euthanized and places them either up for adoption or into temporary foster homes. Through its adoption locations, special events, and foster care network, PAWS finds loving homes for thousands of animals each year. Support for PAWS funds lifesaving programs such as adoption and foster care, low-cost vaccinations, spay/neuter surgeries, and other efforts, all of which reduce and will ultimately eliminate the unnecessary killing of Philadelphia’s homeless animals.
