We’re getting the most out of the long and warm Seattle summer days by reaching out into our community. We’ll be out and about in the coming weeks and hope to see you!
Did you see us at the Mill Creek Festival? We were there (pictured, right)—enjoying hundreds of visitors to our PAWS tent on July 19 and 20.
A fun community event in the heart of Mill Creek, this 2-day festival was a great place to share the good work we do for animals and offer information about volunteering, adoption, foster care, wildlife rehabilitation, and our upcoming PAWSwalk!
August continues to grant us many opportunities to get out and about in our community.
