Are we the PAWS you're looking for?

Throughout the world there are organizations with the name "PAWS." It is a common acronym for animal groups.

However, they are all separate organizations and have no affiliation with our organization in Lynnwood, Washington. We are not a national organization with chapters in other parts of the country or the world.
