Help Us Fulfill Our Mission

Every single day of the year, we are rescuing animals from a lifetime of cruelty, violence and pain. Your commitment makes it possible for our life-saving programs to create happy endings for those innocent lives. Please continue to be there for PAWS and the animals we serve.


For 40 years, PAWS has worked tirelessly to make the pain and suffering of animals a thing of the past, and we'll continue in our efforts until that goal is reached. Thank you for being there for us, which has allowed us, in turn, to be there for all the animals who have found their way to our doorstep.

Memorial Donations - Honoring a Life

Your donation to PAWS can make a real difference. Remembering the life of a friend or loved one with a donation will provide help and hope for a brighter future for pets in need. Your gift in memory provides access to spay/neuter services, veterinary financial aid, senior support, adoption services, pet food banks and more. Your single gift in memory of a loved one will improve the lives of our neighbors and their pets, who rely on PAWS' vital services.





Honorary Donations - The Perfect Gift

Celebrate any occassion or achievement in honor of someone special. Recognize a special veterinarian, groomer, trainer or pet in your life. Honor a birthday or anniversary of a pet lover in your life with a gift that benefits our whole community.

Is there a portion of our mission that you are especially passionate about? Do you want to specify where your gift goes? You may choose to designate a fund (if your gift does NOT have a particular designation, it will be used where the need is the greatest).

Since 1975, PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap has served tens of thousands of pets and their people, on Bainbridge Island and throughout North Kitsap, without a cent of government support. We rely entirely on local businesses, foundations, and mostly, on the compassion and generosity of individual animal lovers.
