Responsible Pet Owner Month

February is Responsible Pet Ownership Month. Pets need: Health. Regular visits to the vet are absolutely necessary. Insurance may also be important to your pet’s health. Emergencies can happen at any time. Ensure your pet gets the help he needs no matter the cost with pet insurance.

Providing a Safety Net

PAWS providing a safety net for animals in need

By providing Veterinary Financial Assistance, Senior Support and a Pet Food Bank, PAWS provides the resources needed to keep cherished pets at home. Sometimes being able to have a pet in your life and needing to surrender that beloved companion to a shelter can be a very close call for a family who is suddenly living on the brink. Pet retention programs like these take the pressure off overcrowded shelters and keep families together.

Proving There's No Place Like Home

Providing a home for pets in need

Whether through our collaborative Right Dog-Right Home Matchmaking Program, our innovative PALS Senior Placement Program, our free county-wide KitsapLostPets.org Lost and Found Service, or our highly regarded no-kill Adoption Program that rescues at-risk cats and kittens from high kill shelter areas, PAWS is working every day to nurture and sustain the bond of companionship between pets and their people.

Supporting A Compassionate Community

From our Good Samaritan Fund for injured found pets, to supporting community caregivers with feral cats, to providing a Guardian Angel Fund for the humane euthanasia of suffering animals whose owners cannot afford this final act of kindness, PAWS is there for the most vulnerable in our community thanks to the support we receive from so many like-minded individuals right here at home.
