Wildlife Patient of the Week: Northern Goshawk


This week, our wild patient focus is on a juvenile Northern Goshawk who was transferred to us from Seattle Animal Shelter.  

In Washington, Northern Goshawks are listed as a species of concern. Unfortunately we don't know what happened to this patient but upon arrival at PAWS he was wet, dehydrated and very weak. He is being housed indoors in our wildlife hospital until further assessment by our vet team.

You can follow our weekly wild patient updates here.

Huge thank you to all our 25th PAWSwalk-ers!

PAWSwalk 225h

What a day! Hundreds of two- and four-legged walkers are enjoying a well-earned rest after joining us for our 25th PAWSwalk.

Together they helped raise more than $155,000 for the animals!

A huge thank you to all walkers, donors, sponsors, vendors and volunteers for making our 25th walk one to remember. Know that thousands of wild and companion animals will face brighter, healthier futures because of your kindness.

The walk may be over but you can relive the best bits via our online photo gallery.

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 these patients have completed their recovery, they're returned to suitable habitat as close to where they were found as possible.

If you have property you'd be willing for us to use as a release site, you can help by joining our Shared Spaces Program.
