Hand2Paw LogoHand2Paw is a nonprofit organization in Philadelphia that empowers young adults ages 18-21 to volunteer in the city’s animal shelters. Hand2Paw empowers young adults to take charge of their lives, learn real marketable skills, and pursue fulfilling employment through working with animals. Hand2Paw’s programs also seek to teach youth in our city to treat animals with respect and kindness. Finally, Hand2Paw’s youth volunteers provide hundreds of hours of care, training, grooming, and socialization to thousands of Philadelphia’s shelter animals. This ensures that the homeless animals in our city’s shelters remain stimulated, happy, and behaviorally sound as they await their adoptive homes.
