Summer fundraiser helps save more than 7,000 animal lives all year long

From ducks and bears to cats and puppies, PAWS is a safe haven for animals in need. In Lynnwood, the PAWS Companion Animal Shelter delivers care, nurturing and veterinary help to adoptable cats and dogs, while the PAWS Wildlife Center provides veterinary care to over 150 local species of wildlife. In Seattle, PAWS Cat City hosts adoptable cats in a unique cat colony setting.

To help meet its ever-growing needs, PAWS is once again hosting the popular PAWSwalk. This year, PAWSwalk will be on Saturday, August 29 from 8:30am – 1:30pm at King County’s Marymoor Park in Redmond (at the Velodrome), 6046 W Lake Sammamish Parkway NE.
Registration is now open online.

PAWS is encouraging teams and individuals to start their fundraising as soon as they are registered. Prizes will be awarded for the most donations raised by an individual (Top Walker), most donations raised by a young person (Top Youth Walker) and most donations raised by a team (Top Team).

“PAWSwalk is such a fun event, hundreds of dogs with their companions walking and representing all of the animals in our care, it’s quite a sight to see,” explains Kay Joubert, Director of Companion Animals at PAWS. The event features a walk, vendor booths, an agility contest, and is sponsored this year by VCA Veterinary Hospitals.

PAWSwalk 2015’s ‘Top Dog’ mascot is Magnolia, a miniature poodle who came to PAWS after being abandoned. The little dog required foster care while she recovered from life-saving leg amputation surgery. Her PAWS foster volunteer fell in love and officially adopted Magnolia. Together, they have helped many more canine amputees adjust, ensuring an even quicker adoption success for each dog. Magnolia will lead off the walk on August 29.

Event is free. Register in advance to raise donations.

PAWS is a champion for animals–rehabilitating injured and orphaned wildlife, sheltering and adopting homeless cats and dogs, and educating people to make a better world for animals and people.
