Clarion PAWS

Who We Are We are a new group of concerned citizens who formed because we are tired of seeing pets thrown away, abandoned, neglected, abused and ultimately euthanized. More than just a shelter, Clarion PAWS (Pet Adoption and Welfare Society) is working to implement programs such as trap-neuter-return (TNR), spay-neuter for cats and dogs, foster families for displaced puppies and kittens while they wait for a new home, and educational programs for school children and interested adults. Misson Statement Promote and advance humane and protective care and treatment of animals by positive community interaction through education, spay-neuter programs and other activities that enable people of all ages and in all circumstances to enjoy animal companionship. Act as a protective association primarily in the care and disposition of lost, strayed or homeless dogs and cats.

Adoption Process

Clarion PAWS Adoption Process consists of a Pre-Adoption Application with information supplied by the potential adopter, including references. The Pre-Adoption Application is reviewed by an adoption counselor. A home visit is required. Our adoption counselor will spend some time deteriming if the family and pet are a good fit. If the Pre-Adoption Application is approved and the home visit is successful then final arrangements are made for the closing of the adoption, including an executed contract. We restrict adoptions to a 150 mile radius of Clarion PA. Clarion PAWS has a mandatory pre-adoption spay/neuter requirement unless our veterinarian determines there is a medical reason not to perform the spay/neuter. Puppies and kittens are included in this policy. All of our licensed veterinarians perform pediatric spay/neuters. Clarion PAWS has a guaranteed return policy. In accordance with the terms of our contract, animals adopted from Clarion PAWS must be returned to us sh
