2019-2020 School Year Offerings

Do you have a classroom of animal lovers, or are you trying to develop more humane and compassionate choices in your students?

We would love to work with your class as you complete a project that benefits animals and the environment! Depending on your project, we may be able to visit your classroom or invite you to PAWS for a program on-site. Contact us at education@paws.org or 425-787-2500 x257 for more information.
