We're celebrating our 25th PAWSwalk!

PAWSwalk 225h

Get ready to bark in the park with PAWS tomorrow (August 27) at our 25th PAWSwalk.

Donations from PAWSwalk supporters help fund critical care for injured, orphaned and homeless animals with nowhere else to turn.

We're already more than halfway toward our goal and are looking forward to seeing hundreds of walkers and their dogs at King County's Marymoor Park! Online registration is now closed, but you can still join us at the park for fun dog games and agility, animal-friendly food trucks, adoptable puppy parades and more!

Bookmark for all the event information you need. If you can't join us but want to play your part, you can make a donation online.

This week's patient spotlight falls on an orphaned Northern Flying Squirrel.

Save wild animals’ lives by sharing your land

Our wildlife hospital and rehabilitation center cares for more than 4,000 orphaned, injured or sick wild animals every year.

Once they have completed their recovery, they are returned to suitable habitat as close to where they were found as possible.

You can help us save these animals' lives. If you have property you would be willing to use as a release site, please join our Shared Spaces Program.
