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 has always been a foster-based rescue, meaning that we do not have a conventional adoption facility for all available pets: they are cared for in the homes of our volunteers! We do NOT have a facility to come see adoptable dogs.

Added in 2016, Paws and Prayers is proud to offer approved cat/kitten adopters the ability to come and meet several adoptable cats in Jessica’s Kitty Corner! This cat-adoption center is located at 1407-A Main Street, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, 44221 and has limited open hours:

  • Mondays, 2 pm to 4 pm
  • Saturdays, 11 am to 2 pm

Several adoptable cats may also be met at the following location during the store’s regular business hours; please call each store to check on current availability:

  • Chapel Hill PetSmart, (330) 922-4114, 355 Howe Avenue, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, 44221
  • Green Pet Supplies Plus, (330) 644-9850, 3100 Manchester Road, Akron, 44319

Paws and Prayers has adoption events every week!

Check our calendar to see where we are this weekend! If there’s a particular pet you are interested in meeting, email us (or the foster’s email on the pet’s listing) to request s/he come to an adoption event!
