Paws&Claws renovating new rescue shelter

By Thomas Sellers Jr.

Paws and Claws 2 Paws and Claws 3Despite the bitter temperatures on Jan. 10, dozens of volunteers came out to start the process toward a quarantine center for area dogs and cats.
Members of the Tipton Paws and Claws, an animal rescue shelter, were joined by military personnel, other rescue shelters and even some generous neighbors in cleaning up a recently acquired building.
The cleaning and renovation effort started Saturday morning will hopefully be the groundwork for an springtime opening of the facility to house rescue dogs and cats for a couple of weeks before heading to New England.
“Today is the first clean up,” Tipton Paws and Claws President Heather Twisdale noted. “All out here feel it’s worth it to provide a facility needed to quarantine rescue animals. We want to provide them with a good foster home for the quarantine process.”
Twisdale said the location will ideally house 40 adult dogs, 40 puppies and 10 to 20 cats. The Brighton resident helped to find Tipton Paws and Claws, 501(c) 3k, on Aug. 31, 2012 in an effort to rescue dogs and cats.
Another purpose of Paws and Claws is to educate the public about topics like having animals spayed and neutered. For more information on the organization or to volunteer, visit
