Special Events

Throughout the year, PAWS hosts and participates in several events that raise money for PAWS, covering the cost of vet care and pet food for our clients.  They require a good number of volunteers and offer a variety of fun volunteer opportunities.  

Folsom Street Events

FSE Logo 2013Folsom Street Events are well known for their fairs that celebrate the leather/alternative lifestyle.  These fairs, however, are also fundraisers for a number of non-profit organizations. 

PAWS was a major beneficiary of the Folsom Street Events in 2013. 



 Holiday Gift Delivery for pets

PAWS volunteers assemble and deliver holiday gift bags filled with donated pet toys and treats to PAWS clients for their companion animals.  Come help our clients celebrate the holiday season with their beloved pets.  The Holiday Gift Delivery for Pets usually takes place on the second Sunday in December. 
This year's Holiday Gift Delivery was held on Sunday, December 8, 2013. Check out some photos of that wonderful day.
