We're on the Road to Puppy Bowl this spring!

CCC relaunch Feb 14 2015

Every day, PAWS serves as a place of refuge for homeless, hungry and neglected animals who have nowhere else to turn.

From mother cats with newborn kittens to senior dogs and orphaned Harbor Seal pups, PAWS is here to give them comfort and care when they need it most.

We're here only because of caring individuals like you.

Monthly gifts from supporters just like you play a vital role in helping provide nourishing food, comforting shelter, and life-saving medical care whenever it is needed—365 days a year.

Help PAWS save lives every day by joining our Constant Companions Club today.


Tour some of the finest feline real estate in Seattle

Catio Tour Seattle April 22 2015

Is it a plant nursery? Is it an aviary? Is it a hen house? No – it's an example of Seattle's finest feline real estate!

If you're a cat lover, get ready for one of the most unique events you've ever seen. On May 16, PAWS is partnering with The Humane Society of the United States and Seattle-based Catio Spaces to present the city's first ever Catio Tour!

By creating a safe and secure environment, catios—outdoor cat enclosures—provide cats with refreshing outdoor time and their guardians with peace of mind. Important, too, is the protection they give to the local birds and wild neighbors who share our community.

Register now for this fun, free, and inspirational afternoon!
