Who We Are

We are a group of concerned citizens who formed in August of 2007 because we were tired of seeing pets thrown away, abandoned, neglected, abused and ultimately euthanized. Clarion PAWS (Pet Adoption and Welfare Society) has successfully implemented programs like trap, neuter, return (TNR) of feral and stray cats being cared for by colony caregivers, low income, low cost, high quality spay-neuter for cats , foster families for displaced kittens while they wait for a home, a pet food food bank and educational programs about pet care. Our immediate concern is to stop the unnecessary killing of companion animals. We start by dedicating our resources to programs, like low cost spay/neuter and Trap Neuter & Return of feral/stray cats, that prevent companion animals from ever entering a shelter. We are registered as a non-profit organization within Pennsylvania, and we are an IRS 501c3 non-profit. We have purchased a house and remodeled the inside to give felines a cage free environment. Each cat area has a room with a view to the outside. Our primary concentration is providing quality low cost spay/neuter services for cats and placing abandoned felines into loving homes. Information about our programs is available on our website . Anyone interested in being a part of our efforts is strongly encouraged to volunteer or consider making a donation of time, supplies or money.

Adopting a friend

Clarion PAWS has a mandatory preadoption spay/neuter policy. Our partner veterinarians perform pediatric spay/neuters. Exceptions may only be made under the advice of our partner veterinarians. Anyone who is interested in adopting a companion animal under Clarion PAWS' care will need to complete an adoption application. References will be checked. Upon approval, a formal adoption contract will need to be signed. Clarion PAWS and/or their authorized representative(s) reserve the right and authority for the final approval and disposition on the placement of animals under their care.
