Did you know at PAWS we offer the unique opportunity for a PET VISIT in your home before you finalize your adoption? The pet you choose after our meet and greet will be sent to your home for 12-15 days. During that time you will have the opportunity for you and your family to determine if this will be a good match. Any health or behavior issues are addressed during this time. We are there to work with you every step of the way! Remember, if the pet does not match with your situation, we have other pets we can introduce to you and your family. We also offer assistance with transport, introduction, and loan crates and condos for your visit. We receive so much wonderful feedback about our pet home visits. Questions? Call PAWS at 814-726-1961. We would love to work with you and your family!
Did you know that PAWS matches pets to people and situations? We get to know our pets and temperament test all our pets to help us in our matching process. Our home visits are a time when you take a pet home for a trail period to get to know the pet in your environment before a final adoption. It helps ensure more permanent adoptions. Additionally, we have received wonderful feedback from our adopters about the ease of the home visits. Take time to experience for yourself how great it is to adopt from PAWS.
Did you know that more pets go missing on the 4th of July than any other holiday? While it may be all fun and festivities for us, it could be a time of distress for your pet. Here's how to keep them safe during the celebrations:
• Keep your pets indoors or in a closed off area
• Use insect repellent made for pet use
• Keep pets away from poisonous alcoholic drinks
• Don't take your pets to fireworks displays or use fireworks around them
• Have your pet properly identified
• Keep your pets on their normal diet (No table food)

Paws Along The River welcomes everyone searching for a special furry friend to complete our pre-adoption information form when interested in adopting a pet. We are proud to share that we have never refused anyone from completing our pre-adoption form. If anyone is interested in adopting, they must complete a pre-adoption form and meet with an adoption counselor. The family will be introduced to any pets they are interested in and match that with their situation. We adopt to all types of situations and families such as singles, families with and without children, families with cats or other dogs, and families from here in Warren and out of Warren. PAWS staff is experienced and trained to help you find the best new family member for you. Remember to get first hand information about our adoption process. Visit today to see our wonderful PAWS pets.

Misinformation about Paws Along The River (or any Humane Society) hurts the animals we care for. When people don't check out the facts or misrepresent what they hear, others hesitate to:
*BRING IN STRAYS WHO MAY TRULY NEED VETERINARY OR OTHER CARE
*BE EDUCATED ABOUT PA LAWS ABOUT DOG LICENSE, RABIES AND ANIMALS RUNNING AT LARGE

*DONATE TO SUPPORT ALL THE LOCAL ANIMALS IN NEED IN OUR COUNTY

Paws Along The River Humane Society adopts to a variety of households. We frequently adopt to single families, married couples, and families with children. Additionally, we adopt to people who work and those who stay at home. We encourage applications from those who are young, old, and everything in between.
Our goal is to match the pet to their perfect family and living situation. If you understand our goals, we can help you find a new best friend. PAWS offers a free in-home trial for all new adoptions, veterinary check up, all vaccines and spay and neuters are included in our adoption fees. Visit our Facebook and Instagram pages to see our wonderful adoption success stories. Stop by 212 Elm Street to see all our wonderful pets or visit them here on the website!
If you find a stray pet, please bring them to PAWS so the pet can be scanned for a microchip and checked for tattoos and/or tags. Pennsylvania law requires we hold stray pets for a minimum of 48 hours and every attempt is made to find and return the pet to its owner. Pets are also examined and if there are any medical needs, they are provided veterinary care. If no owner is found, we further evaluate the pet for adoption using all available information including temperament testing, medical information, etc. Keep your pet ID'd! If we have found your furry friend, help us find you! PAWS ensures pets are returned to their rightful owner by law and can educate owners about the laws and proper pet care if necessary. Keep stray pets safe and bring them to PAWS.
