The Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, also known as PAWS is doing great work in becoming a no-kill shelter.

Melissa Levy, Executive Director of PAWS says, "The idea was to bring adoptable pets and low cost clinic services to another part of the city that weren't reaching before."

PAWS Northeast is the newest location for the city's largest no-kill shelter. It is also the third location.

"There's a huge problem in Philly. We want to keep doing more and more for the city's pets to keep moving forward to becoming a no-kill," said Levy.

The shelter is part of the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. The wall art makes the location easy to find and shares the organization's mission.



"They feature animals that were once homeless, but are now living in happy, loving homes which we hope for all the animals here," added Levy.

If you see any animals in the video that you would like to adopt, visit the PAWS website.
