Updates from our blog:


The PAWS blog is a fun way to share the many uplifting stories we see throughout the year with the people who make them possible—you, our friends and supporters. Here's a few special tales that warmed our hearts. We hope you enjoy them.


Marty was featured on the cover of the spring magazine as an example of PAWS Partner Placement Program and its success. By using the program’s network of shelters throughout the state, we were able to take Marty in and care for him. Did it work? Before we even went to press, Marty was adopted by a wonderful family in Snohomish County, Washington. A week or so later, we received hand-written letters from the children. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

PAWS Magazine Issue 79 Marty's Kids' Letters


12-year old Farcus came to us this year as a somewhat loveable, yet grumpy cat. But during his stay at PAWS Cat City, volunteers came to adore his unique personality. And so did his new guardian. Here’s a note we received a few days later:

“Thank you again for the wonderful work that you do, and especially for taking such good care of Farcus. I feel very fortunate to have found the little guy; he’s such a cool old cat, very laid-back but still likes to play and be around people. Being a dog person, I still stay stupid things to cats like “sit” and “come” but for some reason when I ask Farcus to come (jokingly, of course), he will get right up and come over to be scratched! After sniffing out every corner of the apartment to get the lay of the land he quickly decided that his favorite place to sleep is on the couch where he can keep an eye on everything.”
