UPDATE: The dog has been found.

A yorkie mix (under 10 pounds, smaller than a cat) escaped from a backyard on 48th Street between Hazel and Larchwood on Monday at around 5:10 p.m. It’s possible that someone picked him up as he is not wearing a tag. His name is Truman.

“We are dog sitting for the family while they are out of town and he does not know the area. Please let us know if you hear anything,” writes our reader Joanna.

Please call 434-409-7675 or 703-869-4589 with any information. A reward is being offered for finding the dog.

PAWS raising money for Grays Ferry shelter renovations

May 12, 2016

pawsPhilly PAWS, a local pet rescue organization, is raising money for its Grays Ferry location. The Grays Ferry shelter is undergoing a major overhaul that “includes creating a new dog adoption and foster care office, replacing a broken washer with a commercial-grade machine, and replacing old computers and furniture,” according to the PAWS website.

When the renovations are complete, the Grays Ferry location will be able to accommodate a growing staff, serve more adopters, and rescue more homeless pets.

Their goal is to raise $7,500 and they have already raised $5,100 as of 3:45 p.m. on Thursday. Every contribution to this project will be matched thanks to the generosity of two anonymous PAWS donors.

If you want to help, go to this page for more information and to donate.
