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
Folsom 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 is generally held the 2nd Sunday in December. This year's delivery is Sunday, December 8, 2013.
To volunteer for this event, go to the PAWS sign-up page on Sign-up Genius.
For details about this event, see Holiday Gift Delivery For Pets volunteer page to read more about volunteer shifts and duties.

Every spring, PAWS hosts its annual fundraising gala, Petchitecture. This is a fun event where approximately 125 volunteers help with everything from Silent Auction, Live Auction, Registration, Dog Assistance, and several other event jobs.
Petchitecture 2013 was held on Sunday, May 5th. For more information about the event, see our Petchitecture page.
Look for next year's Petchitecture sign-up page in early 2014.
San Francisco Pride celebration
PAWS typically runs the largest beverage booth at Pride each year. A percentage of the funds raised goes back to PAWS. Look for our Pride Sign-Up page for more information and to volunteer early in 2014.
