We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

Today, people around the world are coming together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

Gather your friends, family, and co-workers, and be a part of this global celebration by giving to PAWS. Whether you donate a cash gift or your time, your contribution will help the thousands of cats, dogs and wild animals who come through PAWS’ doors every year.

Your generosity, compassion and support will make a real difference today and every day: giving injured, orphaned and homeless animals a second chance at a happy, healthy life.

WoR airlift Nov 20 crates on tarmac photo from PAWS

Last week's Wings of Rescue ‪‎airlift saw around 100 cats, dogs, kittens and puppies make the journey from California to PAWS in search of their Home for the Holidays.

An annual event, this year's airlift was a record breaker - with 25 planes transporting more than 1,000 dogs and cats from shelters in California to new lives in the Pacific Northwest and Midwest.

All the animals who arrived at PAWS on November 20 are currently being showered with love from our foster families, staff and volunteers until their perfect forever family walks through our door.

If you're looking for a fur baby to complete your family, check out our Available Pets page today! And look for mentions of our Home for the Holidays adoption special too, with fees waived for some of the cuties searching for their happy ending this holiday season.

White Center oil spill birds recovering at PAWS

More than 70 birds continue their recovery at PAWS Wildlife Center after being rescued from an oil spill in White Center on Saturday, November 7.

The spill resulted in 50-100 gallons of cooking oil entering a retention pond via the county storm water drainage system. The Washington Department of Ecology was quick to respond to the spill, with Focus Wildlife International overseeing the rescue and recovery of the oiled birds.

In partnership with Focus Wildlife, who are treating and rehabilitating the oiled birds, PAWS Wildlife Center is providing the facility and additional staff and volunteers needed. As of November 16, 73 birds have been rescued from the spill location and brought to PAWS.

For more information about the spill and the clean-up process, visit the WA Department of Ecology’s incident website. To follow news updates, read the latest stories on our PAWS in the News page.
