PAWS For The Latest

September 2017 News & Events From Centre County PAWS

We Did It!

Thanks to your support, we have reached our $30,000 Matching Gift Challenge goal! Two wonderful, generous donors are matching the $30,000! Your gifts during this donation drive will help us rescue, heal, spay/neuter and provide necessary care to the almost 1,000 cats and dogs surrendered to us each year.

Fargo is one example of how your donations help. Fargo came to PAWS when his owners could not afford to treat his skin condition. He was shy, itchy, and sore when he arrived. Thanks to your donations, PAWS was able to provide him with the medical care he needed.
Fargo is now happy, healthy, and loving life with his new mom. If you've been following his story since he arrived at PAWS you will be thrilled to see his latest update photo of how amazing he looks today!

Rescues and happy endings like this would not be possible without your support and donations. Thank you for helping us cross the finish line of our Matching Gift Challenge and please consider donating in the future so we can continue helping even more animals!

PAWSome Kids!

Thanks to Alex, an Eagle Scout from a local Boy Scout group, our dogs have been sleeping sweet dreams in new handmade dog beds! Alex completed these beds for our pups as part of his Eagle Scout project. Our dogs give them two paws up! Thanks, Alex!

Fosters Needed

Due to the recent storms of Hurricane Harvey and Irma, PAWS has been busy transporting dogs to State College to ultimately provide much needed space for dogs brought from the affected regions to shelters and pet rescue agencies in South Carolina. (See our article about it here!)
As a result, we currently have a need for dog fosters. Please visit our website to find out more about becoming a foster home.

Happy Endings

Below are some photos and stories our adopters have sent us. You can see more Happy Endings in our photo albums: 2017  | 2016  | 2015  | 2014 | 2013


"So in love with my adorable Monty kitty! Here we are taking a break from chasing paper balls - taking a cat nap! Thank you PAWS for this amazing fur baby!"


"Scout celebrated his 1st Birthday with us last Friday!! We adopted him from PAWS last November. He is perfect in every way--loving, obedient, fun, and every single person he meets falls in love with him. I truly believe that my life was incomplete without him. Thanks PAWS for giving us our handsome boy."
