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.

PAWS Happenings


  • Caring for Outdoor/Feral Cats
    Feral cats are "wild" cats who are fearful of human contact. Though they live outdoors, they can use our help to make it through the winter. Check out this helpful cold weather cat care information from our friends at the Hundred Cat Foundation. Call or stop by PAWS for any assistance with food as needed.
