Miss Kitty

“She had to be given up due to housing issues. She is a giant love bug. She does tend to grab you when you leave. She just doesn’t like to see people go,” the rescue posted on Facebook. “She would make a great cat for a family that spends lots of time at home. She would be sure to be part of all family time.”

Clarion PAWS is located at 11348 Route 322, Shippenville, Clarion River Hill, between Scrap Happy and Clarion Electric. The adoption center is open from 5 to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturdays. The center is closed Fridays and Sundays.

Extra large love

Tri-County Animal Rescue Center in Shippenville has St. Bernard Beethoven available for adoption.


“Beethoven is a heart stealing, lovable, 107-pound, 3-year-old, big lug of a dog who is housebroken and loves treats. At the shelter, Beethoven fills up his dog kennel like a furry ottoman on gliders,” the rescue said on its website.

“When it’s his turn to go outside, Beethoven casually lumbers down the aisle towards the back door, oblivious to the other dogs squawking all around him; he does not try to stare down or fence fight with any of his neighbors,” the post continued.

“When introduced to the shelter cats, Beethoven was mildly interested, gently wagging his tail and sniffing through the screened enclosure, then he abruptly turned around and walked out of the room …,” the rescue said.

Tri-County is located at 9562 Route 322, Shippenville.
