I adopted my loving, adorable dog (Roscoe) from PAWS in May of 2010. The adoption counselors, volunteers and staff were SO helpful through the whole process. They outlined all the procedures so my fiance and I understood the adoption process and really helped us find the *right* dog for us. Roscoe is amazing and we love him so much. We thank PAWS for bringing him into our lives.

I also am an active PAWS volunteer. I firmly stand by our mission and love that I am able to be part of such a wonderful organization.

I went to PAWs a couple of weeks ago to look for a new companion, and found a wonderful dog. Spent a couple of hours with him, went out walking with him (plastic bag in pocket), had several intense discussions with the guy who took care of the dogs. Felt extremely compatible with this dog (black lab mix), already developing a warm feeling for him, and I filled out the adoption papers. Was told that it would take around a week to check me out, so I made arrangements to come visit him the following Monday (1-1/2 days later). Drove out there, went to see him, and was told by the handler on duty "oh, someone had applied to adopt him before you, and they were approved yesterday!". Not a hint, I have to add, of regret that they had allowed me expectations that probably were not going to be fulfilled! All I would have asked was that they tell me, at the time I filled out the papers, something like "You should know that there is a person who has put in adoption papers for this guy ahead of you; if he is approved, then you won't be able to adopt the dog". In fact, how could that NOT be a part of the routine procedure? I also have to say that I had received a warning from a friend, before I went there, that many people have been unhappy with their treatment at PAWS, but I figured I'd still like to look. Funny thing is, given that PAWS is a no-kill shelter, which I heartily support, I had planned to begin sending regular donations to them; needless to say, that's off the table! By the way, it has now been three weeks, and nobody from PAWS has ever bothered calling me (they did not know my name when I had gone back that next Monday - nobody ever asked! - so they didn't have any way to know that I already knew that someone else had adopted him; as far as they knew, I was still hanging). I would suggest that people looking for a place to rescue an animal consider other options.

The Centre County PAWS shelters stray cats and fosters dogs out. The cat shelter is always clean and well cared for. The cats are so cute, its hard not to take them all home with you. All of the volunteers work hard to get these cats and dogs the medical attention they need. A great organization.
