Mission Statement

Hand2Paw connects homeless and at risk youth to shelter animals through volunteering and paid internships. We are based in Philadelphia and place interns in animal shelters in Pennsylvania SPCA, Morris Animal Refuge, Brandywine Valley SPCA and PAWS.

Description

Since 2010, Hand2Paw has been providing paid internship experiences to youth who are homeless, in foster care or otherwise disconnected from school and the work force. Our young people gain work experience while helping animals waiting for homes in shelters and, in the course of the experience, develop qualities of empathy, responsibility, cooperation and problem solving that will serve them the rest of their lives.
