Still waiting

Area animal rescues highlight their available adoptable animals.

Long timers

Precious Paws Animal Rescue president Theresa Weldon posted earlier this week on the group’s Facebook page about some of the rescue’s “long timers.”


“I sat at home watching ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ tonight and my mind went to all of our ‘Long timers’ — the fosters that are always overlooked because they are old, or shy, or simply because there are just too many cats to compete for a loving home,” Weldon posted. “Some of these animals have been with us for years. So in the spirit of Christmas, I’m asking you to please share these long timers at Precious Paws in hopes of finding them a home.”

They are posted on Precious Paws’ Petfinder page and more information is available there.

All of these pets are healthy, altered, vaccinated, tested negative for parasites, feline leukemia/FIV, Lyme Disease/HW and microchipped.

“Please share them every day until their homes are found. Share with your friends. Ask your friends to share them. Post them in your groups. I will mark each animal that gets a home as they are adopted – let’s see if we can find them all homes for the holidays,” Weldon posted.

Adoption applications can be found on the group’s website at

More information is available by contacting the rescue at (814) 671-9827 or on the Precious Paws Facebook Page or website.

Terrific tunes

Clarion PAWS in Shippenville is in need of three working AM/FM radio’s with cords, not batteries.

“Nothing fancy just something we can put on a timer to play music for our cat areas … our building is too quiet,” the rescue posted on Facebook.

Meanwhile, the rescue has Kate available for adoption.



“Not quite sure if an adult cat is the right fit for you? How about a full grown kitten?” the rescue posted. “Kate is about 2 years old but has never grown up. She is a sweetheart with so much energy. She loves to play, whether it’s a box, laser, cat teaser or her roommates.”

“She is the best of both worlds. She has calm moments where she wants to cuddle but will also keep your life interesting when she is running around exploring and playing,” the rescue said.

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.

More information is available online at, the group’s Facebook page or by calling (814) 229-1231.
