Education & Outreach

COVID-19 UPDATE - Scout tours will be virtual only and are scheduled on a limited basis, as volunteer assistance is available. The PAWS Reading Program and Birthday Parties are currently on hold. 

PAWS educates the public about responsible pet ownership through public events, person-to-person contact, and educational materials. School visits are available.

Girl and Boy Scout groups are welcome at PAWS!  We can help you earn animal/pet care related badges, take a tour, or work on your higher level awards.  Please contact Kim at to schedule a visit or find out more information.

You can also hold your child's birthday party at PAWS! Our birthday parties are for children turning six and up, and we can accommodate up to 20 guests. Click here for more information on birthday parties.

Please call (814) 237-8722 or email to request more information about any of our educational programs!
