Wodify’s ongoing philanthropic initiative, took members from our North American office to volunteer at the Pennsylvania SPCA, headquartered in Philadelphia. The mission is to improve the lives and communities around us, and in the case of our Fall 2017 event, that included some four-legged friends as well.
The PSPCA has been working on behalf of animals since 1867. They exist to save them from cruel and abusive environments such as inhumane puppy mills, dog fighting rings, high-kill shelters and hoarding situations.
Once rescued, the animals (including dogs, cats, sheep, goats, horses and chickens) are brought back to the Philadelphia facility and given medical attention and rehabilitated. The PSPCA works extensively to place animals in stable and loving homes. Last year alone, they were able to complete the adoptions of 4,885 animals.

We were also tasked with socializing friendly dogs during their daily visits to the on-site dog runs. From bulldogs to pit bulls and many breeds in between, each one we played with was more lovable than the last. It was amazing to see the amount of work being done to protect these abused and neglected animals. All of us who visited were deeply affected by the experience.
“I don’t think I’m alone in saying that it was a pleasure to volunteer at the PSPCA. ‘The heart that gives, gathers,’ and I think everyone - volunteers, staff, and animals can relate to that,” said Vanessa Walker, customer success agent at Wodify.
