Lulu is eager to learn, loves toys, and makes a great running partner. She’s a staff and volunteer favorite at PAWS, but even so, she waited for more than four months to find her forever home. One day a marathon runner came to PAWS looking for a companion who could keep up with his training regimen. He walked through the kennels, turned the corner, and came face-to-face with his new running partner, Lulu.


Anna's Hummingbird
Something struggles in the driveway of a Seattle home—a nestling Anna’s Hummingbird no bigger than a bumblebee. It’s a mystery how this little hummingbird ended up on the pavement, but it is clear that she needs help. Upon examination, a PAWS wildlife rehabilitator determines that the hummingbird is uninjured, slightly dehydrated, but mostly in good health. With some TLC, the little bird grows up fast and quickly graduates to an outdoor cage. She practices her flight skills to prepare for release.


Western Grey Squirrels
Only between 468 and 1,405 Western Grey Squirrels are estimated to exist in Washington, and now two members of this threatened species are living wild and free after a stay at PAWS. The kits were found orphaned and helpless by a Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Biologist who studies a small population of these animals in Western Washington. After rehabilitating at PAWS, the two squirrels, with their incredible bushy tails, now have the opportunity to reproduce with the remaining members of the Western Grey Squirrel population, and perhaps make the sight of these amazing creatures a little less rare in our state.
