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 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 and serving as a pet education resource, 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.
