KINGSTON — As you read this, some 12 adoption counselors and 40 foster homes are caring for and trying to find permanent homes for kittens and cats in Bainbridge and North Kitsap.

As you read this, someone is getting financial help so they can get medical care for their pet. A cat is being spayed or neutered. A feral cat is being caught and spayed or neutered, and after recovery will be released back into the wild.

Marylou Zimmerman, program director of PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap, said that’s only part of the need in our region.

So, with the help of some friends, PAWS will soon expand its services from its 300-square-foot office on Miller Road on Bainbridge to a 900-square-foot site on Lindvog Road and Highway 104 in Kingston, and an additional site in Bainbridge’s Lynwood Center.   READ MORE
