Our Mission

P.A.W.S. of Grays Harbor protects dogs and cats until united with family.

Our History

P.A.W.S. of Grays Harbor was started in 1972 by a strong group of dedicated women. They recognized a need and promptly filled it through community education, the organization of a network of foster homes for unwanted pets, creating a spay/neuter program to reduce the local pet population, and set up pet adoption events in local parking lots. Many lives have been changed through their love and commitment to saving abandoned and abused pets.

We have come a long way due to their hard work. P.A.W.S. of Grays Harbor now has a permanent home in Aberdeen, WA where we serve all of Grays Harbor County.

Our Achievements

At times during the year, P.A.W.S. has housed as many as 80 cats and 20 dogs at one time. These numbers fluctuate depending on the space, funds and man power available to care for these pets. We would love to take every pet in need, but are sometimes forced to turn them away until space becomes available. Through pet adoptions, community volunteers, and donations we are able to change the lives of many animals.
