Ways to Give

Since 1975, PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap has served tens of thousands of pets and their people in our local community. We receive no government funding but rely entirely on local businesses, foundations, and mostly, on the compassion and generosity of individual animal lovers like YOU!

For over 40 years, PAWSBINK has been there for companion animals in our community, working tirelessly to make the pain and suffering of animals a thing of the past, and we’ll continue in our efforts until that goal is accomplished.

Thank you for being an integral part of the PAWSBINK family, helping us fulfill our mission. Your commitment makes it possible for our life-saving programs to create happy endings for those innocent lives. We hope you will continue to be there with PAWSBINK; People helping pets, pets helping people!
