Hand2Paw provides paid internships to at risk youth to work with shelter animals.  The youth are aged 18-22 and homeless or aging out of the foster care system and they spend six months working with shelter animals providing care, cleaning and training and helping them find adoptive homes.  We current operate the Fishtown Adoption center for the Pennsylvania SPCA (a Best Friends Network Partner) where we directly adopt out several hundred animals a year.
