Welcome to PAWS

Centre County PAWS was established in 1980. For over 30 years we have been committed to finding forever homes for cats and dogs, educating citizens on responsible pet ownership, providing spay/neuter assistance, and ending pet overpopulation. We are a noneuthanasia, member supported, volunteer enabled organization dedicated to the Promotion of Animal Welfare and Safety.
