Night Moves

This Barred Owl surveys the landscape after being released back into the wild. The bird came to PAWS Wildlife Center suffering from severe head and eye injuries after being hit by a car on Whidbey Island. Thankfully, PAWS veterinarians and rehabilitators were able to nurse this majestic bird back to health. What more fitting time of day to release a Barred Owl than dusk!

Annie Finds a Home

Annie is one of three dogs that PAWS helped rescue from Iran. Today, this world traveler is just another happy dog, living in Tacoma with her new guardian who was quickly taken by her playfulness and affection.

Waiting for the Tail End

A close encounter with an outdoor house cat in early December left this male Anna's Hummingbird without a tail. He will likely be with us until mid-summer when he reaches the point in his annual molt cycle at which his tail feathers are replaced.

Stryker Takes a Bow

Six years ago, this PAWS alum was the first rescue dog trained by Boeing’s Bomb Detection K-9 team. After enjoying a fond farewell from co-workers that included a peanut butter bone cake, Stryker is now enjoying a quieter gig as a companion dog at the Snohomish County Senior Center.
