Thank You for 2013

Dec31

 

2013 was a successful (and busy!) year at PAWS. As we prepare to usher in 2014, we'd like to share with you a few memorable moments and milestones from the past year:

  • Make a year-end gift to PAWS!Our shelter has placed more than 1,775 animals in their forever homes so far this year—and adoptions are still taking place!
  • In 2013, PAWS veterinarians performed their first-ever Pneumothorax surgery on a 4-pound infant American Black Bear to repair her collapsed lung. More than a year later, on June 5, 2013, this once-frail cub was released back to her home in the Umpqua National Forest in Oregon!
  • This year, the PAWS Foster Care program continued to grow at a staggering pace, providing temporary homes for 1,950 dogs and cats.
  • PAWS Cat City celebrated a record-breaking year with more than 1,260 adoptions!
  • We cared for several Western Pond Turtles, a species that has been listed as endangered since 1993, was a particular surprise! In 2013, we rehabilitated and released a large variety of wildlife, including this young Harbor Seal (pictured above) who came to PAWS dehydrated, emaciated, and extremely weak. Months later he was returned to the wild, a healthy and vibrant creature.

Over the past year—with your help—we have transformed the lives of more than 6,700 injured, orphaned and abandoned animals. Together, we provided much-needed shelter, care and love for the cats, dogs and wildlife who arrived at our door, in need of a second chance.

Please help us continue our life-saving work by making a year-end tax-deductible donation for the animals at PAWS by midnight on December 31.

Thank you for your continued support in 2014!
