PAWS Launches KATO
The Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) has launched a new foster program for offices. KATO, or Kitty at the Office, provides shelter kitties with temporary foster care while they await their forever homes. Fostering, whether in a residence or an office, is at the heart of PAWS’ ability to save lives. Every time a cat leaves a PAWS shelter for a foster home, it opens up a cage for another homeless cat to be rescued. For more information about fostering your own KATO, go to PhillyKato.com.
