12:30pm, Sunday

2501 Wharton St., Philadelphia

A “Red Cross for animals,” Red Paw’s mission is to assist displaced pets and their people 24/7, free of charge, and to ensure that all family members are taken care of during a disaster at their home. Founded in 2011 by Jennifer Leary, a Philadelphia Fire Fighter and Red Cross Emergency Responder, Red Paw works in conjunction with the American Red Cross SEPA Chapter and other public and private businesses, disaster relief, social service and animal welfare organizations to provide emergency transport, shelter, and veterinary care to animals involved in residential fires and other incidents. They work within a network that includes veterinary care facilities, boarding facilities, kennels and training facilities, animal rescue groups, and fosters in Philadelphia and surrounding counties. www.redpawemergencyreliefteam.org
