PAWS is helping dogs and cats impacted by recent natural disasters in regions outside the Pacific Northwest. As an Emergency Placement Partner with the ASPCA, we're being called upon to take in homeless animals from Northern California fire areas so shelters can be used to house displaced pets. In the past three months, PAWS has accepted over 150 dogs and cats from shelters affected by floods and fires. Because of the extreme circumstances, had they not come to PAWS, these animals would have been at risk for euthanasia. When available, we will feature these special emergency response animals on our Featured Pets adoption page.
Take a look at the many wonderful animals for adoption at PAWS. Then come on in and we'll help you find your perfect match.
PAWS is in the running for a $25,000 grant from Starbucks. We only have until 11:59 p.m. (PT) on October 31, 2017 to drive as much Buzz for our video as possible. How do you generate Buzz for PAWS?
