PAWS would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate PAWS’ success at our Annual General Meeting, and another huge thank you to all of our supporters. Without YOU, our work would not be possible.
On July 18, more than 70 donors and volunteers joined PAWS staff and Board Members at our main campus in Lynnwood to reflect on the past year and share our hopes for the future.

After a delicious dinner al fresco, guests witnessed a special event that few ever get to witness – a songbird release. PAWS Naturalist Kevin Mack and three lovely guest assistants released three American Robins back into the wild on PAWS campus. The birds will have plenty of places to live and food to eat in the native vegetation around the PAWS nature trail.

There were plenty of activities for the guests, including a guided tour of our Wildlife Center, a self guided tour of our Companion Animal Shelter, and interactive games with some of our current shelter dogs.
