I've added this page because Powwow does not always address every single need that you might have.
If you are in need of help, please see if the following resources might help you out. You can utilize these resources IN ADDITION to Powwowing help.
Don't be afraid to reach out for help. I will add more resources to this page as I find them!

Animal Care PA is a grant program designed to help pay for the care and treatment of pets, with an emphasis on helping pay for care for strays that are hurt or sick.
