  • It has been a record-setting year for cat adoption
  • 17 dogs were rescued and brought to PAWS by the Centre County Humane Officer
  • Our Pet Pantry has helped more community members feed their animals than ever before

Become a Guardian Angel

Become a Guardian Angel and sponsor the adoption fee of an adoptable PAWS cat or dog. When a forever home is found for an adoptable in the Guardian Angel program, the adoption fee is waived since it is covered by their Angel! Guardian Angel donations also help cover the cost of those animals who have been at PAWS for a long time.
