Location and Hours

Paws and Prayers immediately serves the Greater Akron/Northeast Ohio area but welcomes adopters from all over!
Currently-available adoptable dogs and cats are updated daily on our website.

From it’s onset, Paws and Prayers is a foster-based rescue; we are not a conventional shelter.  Our available dogs are cared for in the homes of our volunteers!
