PAWS History

Since 1975, PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap has been more than an “animal rescue” group. Initiated by three Bainbridge women in a family garage, this public benefit organization embraced from its humble beginnings the sense of community that is so important in an island setting.
