Featured Pet

Adalyn is a beautiful calico who is a sweet, friendly lap cat when there aren't other animals around. She seems to be intimidated around other animals though, and becomes withdrawn. When she is the only pet, she is outgoing and loves sitting on a lap. She is currently living at the adoption center and would love a home of her own. You can meet her at 6041 West Road in McKean (immediately off the McKean exit of I-79) during adoption hours Wednesday - Friday, 1-5 p.m. and Saturday - Sunday, noon - 5 p.m.
