Potter County Animal Assistance Project (PCAAP) is an incorporated nonprofit organization with 501 (c)(3) status dedicated to advancing the cause of animal welfare and the prevention of animal cruelty in Potter County.  The organization began with a dedicated group of volunteers in 2012 and is governed by an elected board and 3 advisers.

The projects PCAAP funds include:

  • Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) of free roaming cats to control the population

  • Low cost spay/neuter of dogs and cats

  • Abandoned/homeless cat adoption

  • Emergency medical care for dogs and cats



PCAAP is funded partially through a grant from the Pennsylvania SPCA with monies provided by the Helen Fath Greene Memorial Fund.  Helen Fath Greene was a former resident of Potter County who left a bequest to the PASPCA for the benefit of domestic animals in Potter County.  The rest of PCAAP's funding comes from donations.


From 2012 - 2019, PCAAP has spayed/neutered a total of almost 5,000 dogs and cats.  We have provided emergency medical care for 213 dogs and cats.  And we have found homes for 596 homeless dogs and cats.


Since we do no have a shelter, abandoned/homeless animals are housed at various foster homes throughout the county.  We also supplement the feeding of the community cats that have been through out T/N/R program.

PCAAP can always use donations to further our work!  We have a donation button on our Facebook page and are enrolled in the AmazonSmile program where Amazon donates a percentage of every purchase to a nonprofit organization.  Please consider us as your nonprofit benefactor if you are an Amazon shopper! Donations can be mailed to Kim Mitchell, 208 W. Beech St., Coudersport, PA 16915.

Our Facebook page (Potter County Animal Assistance Project) is regularly updated with adoptable pets, useful information for pet owners, lost and found pets in our local area, and more.  Please check us out!



Meet Jack and Jill.  They are a brother and sister team that would very much like to be adopted together if possible.  Jill is the outgoing one and helps Jack come out of his shell.  They are neautered/spayed and are up to date on their shots.
