Thank you to everyone who donated this year! Precious Paws collected a whopping 108 bags of shoes for our 2020 shoe drive and raised nearly $1000 for our organization! Don’t forget that we collect shoes annually, so set aside what you don’t need that someone else could use, and help our organization raise some much needed funds!
Due to the urgent need of social distancing, effective immediately, the following procedures have been put in place for everyone’s safety:
- Non-emergent surgeries and elective appointments have been canceled until further notice. If you have an appointment already scheduled, we will call you to reschedule. Due to the uncertainty of the duration of the quarantines, we are not scheduling elective surgeries at this time.
- The SNYP veterinary clinic will remain open for illness and sick appointments. If your animal is ill or injured, please call the clinic at 814-676-8581 and speak to staff. Our hours of operation will be: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday from 8 AM until 6 PM. We are closed Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday.
- Should any of our employees become ill, we will close the facility to allow employees to focus on being well.
- Upon arrival for an appointment, please do NOT come into the facility, instead:
1. Call the clinic and a staff member will come out to get your pet, discuss your pet’s condition and get a number for you to be reached.
2. The vet will examine your pet, recommend a treatment plan, and contact you by phone as needed for authorization.
3. After treatment, your pet will be brought out to your car along with a copy of charges so you can pay your bill.
- Prescriptions will be filled – call the clinic at 814-676-8581 and tell us what you need. Prescriptions can be mailed to you, called into a pharmacy, or picked up.
- Please consider if your need is urgent. If it is not, we ask that you exercise discretion, stay home and be well.
Thank you for your understanding and your support. We are all in this together!
On February 10, 2020, Precious Paws opened its own full-service SNYP Clinic and Wellness Center, located at 3636 PA-257, Seneca, Pennsylvania (the former Nelson’s Animal Clinic). Hours of operation are 8:00 am – 6:00 pm with wellness exams available Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and surgeries conducted Tuesday-Friday.
Want to help save more than 1 million cats? Over the span of 7 years, just one unspayed cat can produce nearly 5,000 offspring! An extremely generous local business has offered a **$5,000* matching fund for a spay fund to help curb the growing stray cat problem in the area. However, we must first raise $5,000 ourselves in order to receive the match. – that’s a total of $10,000!
We only have until October 1, 2019 to raise this money. Please donate today (via Facebook), or contact PPAR and make a donation directly to our organization. Thank you for your continued support, and help spread the word for PPAR!
On April 15, 2019, Precious Paws Animal Rescue was contacted by a woman who discovered 40 dogs living in a relative’s home in horrid conditions. Precious Paws removed the dogs over the course of 3 days. The ANNA Shelter from Erie, PA also assisted and took in 17 of the dogs. The other 23 were taken to Precious Paws.Continue reading Chihuahua Hoarding case

We’re very excited to see new animal laws in Pennsylvania, which will limit tethering (dogs tied outside 24×7), increase penalties for animal cruelty, protect horses, and offer protection from officials who report abuse. Kudos to the PA State Legislature and Governor Wolf for signing the bill into law.

Dear Friends, Supporters, and Clients – we come to you asking for help today as we find ourselves in need of some assistance. The generous owner of our building we lease for SNYP has decided she will be semi-retiring in a few months. Because she is also a volunteer and supporter of Precious Paws, she has offered us the building at a very fair price, but it is still a price we cannot afford without help from the community. Because we only offer clinics one day per week, and we keep our costs down as low as we can, we cannot qualify for a mortgage for the full building asking price. We are trying to raise $85,000 for Precious Paws to purchase the building SNYP is located in. Continue reading Help SNYP Continue to Help Animals
