Big days ahead for PAWS of BI and NK

On behalf of the pets and pet-loving families we serve throughout Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap, thank you for helping PAWS achieve three recent milestones.

Our 2013 Spotlight dinner/auction raised nearly $90,000 to strengthen our pet adoption program, fuel our capacity expansion, and make possible all the community pet support programs that are critical to the PAWS mission.

We’ve recently opened the doors on two brand-new, cutting-edge facilities — at Pleasant Beach Village on Bainbridge Island and in the Windermere building in Kingston.

And our second annual Community Hero Pet Awards honored seven heroic animals (and their human companions) from throughout Western Washington (meet them at www.northkitsappaws.org/events/herospotlight.html).

None of this would have been possible without the community support on which we continue to rely. Thank you so much for your donations of time, money and energy, and for everything you do for your furry companions.

Mark Hufford
Executive director
