The Philadelphia Eagles Pep TAWK is a school-based program designed to bring local animal experts to classrooms throughout the Delaware Valley in an effort to educate students on responsible pet care and the amazing abilities that dogs have as service animals. During the one hour Pep TAWK, local dog trainer Chris Carr, will teach the students how to properly care for and respect their pets. The students will also have a chance to interact with Chris' dogs, Frankie and Ruby.

Eagles TAWK is a new Eagles community outreach initiative focused on public education and awareness of reducing the abuse of animals. To that end, Eagles TAWK's grant program will recognize and support local organizations that demonstrate a sustainable commitment to end dogfighting and/or promote the welfare of animals. We anticipate that our average grant request will range from $1,500 to $5,000.
End dogfighting programs; the care and protection of those animals directly or indirectly affected by dogfighting; spay/neuter programs; adoption of shelter animals; rescue of abused animals; medical treatment for shelter animals; similar projects designed to promote the welfare of animals.
