"Saving one dog will not change the world, but for that one dog the world will change forever"

Last year, the SJU community donated more then a full truck load of much needed supplies to PAWS during the holiday season. Hopefully this year we can do the same.  All donations will be collected in the O'Pake Recreation Center Main Lobby from Monday, November 26th - Friday, December 21st.  

Donating is as easy as picking up an extra bottle of bleach the next time you are at Target or giving that fleece blanket you haven't used in years. 

Thank you in advance for your support

Assistant Director, Campus Recreation




PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is working toward making Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is 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 initiatives, all of which help reduce and will ultimately eliminate the unnecessary killing of Philadelphia's animals. Donations to PAWS are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
