Our Adoption Process
Changes to Adoption Protocol
Beginning January 1st 2019, the state of Pennsylvania now requires that all dog adopters purchase either a yearly or lifetime license before adopting their new best friend. Only cash or check payments will be accepted for the purchasing of a license. If you have any questions, please call the shelter at (814) 834-3247 or email us at email@example.com.
Featured Cat and Dog
Adoption fees are waived for kitties and dogs are half off with an approved application.
8 Years Old | Chihuahua/Terrier Mix | Spayed Female | Tan and White
Mattie was surrendered to the shelter because her original owner was no longer able to care for her due to her own health problems. This girl is the sweetest dog you'll ever meet. She can be a something of a couch potato but even she can't pass up the opportunity to go for a walk. She loves people and gives great kisses! Mattie does take medication to control seizures, but she takes her pill very well.
4 Years Old | Domestic Short Hair | Neutered Male | Orange Tabby
Pete was surrendered to the shelter due to an overcrowding situation with 17 other cats. When he first came to us, he was in pretty bad shape but now that he's back to health he's more than ready to find his forever family. He loves to play with pipe cleaners and climb our cat tree. While Pete is super friendly, he would prefer a home as the only cat.
