• KIRO 7 Cares September Spotlight – Animal Welfare



    This community is passionate about our pets. At KIRO 7, we are too. That’s why we created the Project Paws initiative, a year-round campaign that supports animal welfare organizations, provides our viewers with resources and information, and helps homeless pets find their forever homes.

    Project Paws launched in 2017 as a two-day Pet Expo and Adoption event and since that time has expanded our effort and reach to address many animal welfare issues that are important to our community.

    In addition to providing support for homeless pets and the organizations who care for them, KIRO 7 works with organizations that rehabilitate injured and orphaned wildlife and others that train assistance dogs for individuals with special needs. KIRO 7 consistently uses our platforms to serve as a resource for our viewers and highlight the many significant issues that impact our animal population every day.

    Below is a list of some of the KIRO 7 Cares partners dedicated to advocating for animals. You could lend your support through pet adoption, fostering, volunteering, attending an event, making a donation, and more. We all can do our part to ensure animals are valued, considered, and safe.
