Mission Statement

PAWS of Bremerton is committed to developing and implementing model programs in animal welfare, public education, and the mutually enriching human/animal bond.

We dedicate ourselves to being a premiere humane agency in the United States, by pursuing excellence and innovation in animal welfare and social services.

We are committed to:

  • Reducing and preventing the overpopulation of companion animals - especially cats and dogs - through public education and an aggressive neuter/spay program. This is the only way the suffering of homeless strays and the euthanasia of unwanted pets will be reduced.

  • Education as the cornerstone of building a more humane future. The relationship between humans and our animal companions is a special focus.

  • Continuing to develop, maintain, and improve programs to meet the growing and changing needs of our community. We are especially committed to those endeavors that not only alleviate suffering but actively and successfully prevent it.

  • Presenting innovative programs to the public and other agencies as models for their own development and change.

  • Coordinating our efforts with other agencies, including those which are outside the traditional boundaries of humane societies.

  • Maintaining the highest quality of care in our model Pet Adoption Center.
We have a deep and unalterable conviction that every living being has an inalienable right to life, and to the dignity and respect which that life implies.
