Then Melissa Levy, Executive Director of PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society) joins Kristen in the studio to talk about this year’s Philly Loves PAWS Day. In its fifth year, Philly Loves PAWS Day is a day held each May where nearly 100 local businesses donate 10% or more of proceeds to support PAWS’ lifesaving efforts. Support these businesses on Wednesday, May 15th, and you will in turn be helping to support PAWS. Proceeds will enable PAWS to rescue and care for Philadelphia’s most vulnerable animals, and bring Philadelphia one step closer to becoming a no-kill city.
