February 23 is World Spay Day, a time to remind us that spaying and neutering saves lives.

Many organizations offer low-cost spay-neuter services around this time of the year, but here at PAWS, every day is World Spay Day. PAWS offers low-cost spay or neuter surgeries to pets of qualified low-income individuals on an appointment basis all year round.

We are working to help end the suffering of unwanted and homeless animals in our community by preventing unplanned litters. Spaying and neutering is good for the community and a great way to help our animal friends live longer, healthier lives.

Make an appointment to have your dog, cat or rabbit spayed or neutered today.

Community provides enrichment for bear cubs

Bear Xmas Tree HP

We have eight American Black Bear cubs in our care right now, each of whom came to us with their own story and from across the state of Washington.

One of our bears’ favorite enrichment items around the holidays is used Christmas trees. We typically hide food in among the branches of the trees, which are then hung in the bears' enclosures. The bears also like to use the trees for other natural behaviors such as rubbing and clawing.

We have received more than 30 used Christmas trees, so the bear cubs will be very happy indeed.

Catio Tour Seattle returns for another year

Catio tour HP

Last year’s Catio Tour was such an amazing success, we’ve decided to do it again.

Catios are enclosed patios for cats where they can enjoy the sights and smells of the outdoors and stay protected from busy roads and predators.

They are a growing trend in the US – popular for the safe enrichment they offer their feline residents and for the added protection they provide for wildlife.

Whether you have cats at home or just love everything about cats, come along and be inspired as you tour some of the best feline real estate Seattle has to offer!
