Pets provide stability for their families during trying times. Unfortunately, during financially stressful times, often the pet is the first that is sacrificed in order to be able to afford food to feed the family. Our nation has risen admirably to the plight of impoverished families who need to be fed and there are foodbanks in nearly every major city to help with this crisis. Many families have been sharing their own food bank portions with their extended family members, and those that can’t make the food stretch make the painful decision to relinquish their family pet. To combat this growing issue, many food banks across the nation have added pet food and litter to their pantries. PAWS collects, packages and distributes dog and cat food for the food banks in Silverdale, Poulsbo, Kingston and on Bainbridge Island. You can bring your donation of dog or cat food to any of our donation stations:

A Country Pet Shoppe, Kingston
Paws and Fins Pet Store, Bainbridge
Poulsbo Marina Vet Clinic, Poulsbo
PAWS Kingston Animal Welfare Center, Kingston
PAWS at Pleasant Beach, Bainbridge

Last year we processed thousands of pounds of food for pets in need thanks to your support! Want to help more? Host a pet food drive where you work or worship, or make your next party a BYOPF (Bring Your Own Pet Food)
