PAWS For The Latest

April 2021 News & Events From Centre County PAWS

A Note From Our Executive Director

I am so pleased to share that our Virtual Pajama Party was an incredible success! We set out to raise $20,000 and not only did we meet our goal, but thanks to your generous support, we were able to surpass that goal by almost $10,000! We are absolutely blown away by the kindness and magnanimity of our sponsors, donors and supporters.

Our events are not only fun; they serve an essential purpose as well. With these funds we are able to continue to offer a safe, comfortable environment for hundreds of cats and dogs in need. Our volunteers and staff are so grateful to you, the community that has supported, stood by us, and cheered us on this past year. The generosity of our supporters has lifted our spirits and helped us persevere through the challenges COVID-19 threw our way. 

Thank you sincerely for your continued support.
 
With Gratitude,
 
Lisa Bahr
Executive Director

Tammy the puppy hasn’t officially been adopted yet, but soon will be after her spay. We think it’s safe to say she’s not going anywhere and has found her perfect family.
The cat of many names, Big Boy aka Chocolate Chunk aka Stinks, has found his forever home. This handsome guy (right) is 17 years old and living it up with his new Dad and feline companion, Josie, another recent PAWS alum. 
Oscar was adopted in October of last year and checked in to say hello. Isn’t he handsome? He’s so happy in his wonderful home.
