Please complete this application if you are interested in fostering cats or dogs for PAWS located in Lynnwood, WA (the Seattle, WA area). We rely on our volunteers to help us carry out our mission and invest significant time in their training, so dependability and long-term dedication are extremely important!
Please note that PAWS cannot accommodate those seeking to fulfill court-ordered community service, and that the main point of contact within your home must be at least 18 years of age.
All volunteers are required to attend a virtual orientation and a Foster Info Session & Training class as a prerequisite before fostering with us.
In order to provide our volunteers with the proper training that gives the highest level of care to our animals, we require a one-time, nonrefundable volunteer registration of $10. This helps to cover the cost of your background check and training materials, and allows more resources to go directly to our animals. Please contact us if this fee is currently beyond your means. Financial aid is available.
A great deal of correspondence between PAWS staff and volunteers takes place via e-mail. Please check your spam and junk e-mail folders to ensure you receive confirmation of this application within 7-10 business days.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for PAWS. We hope to meet you soon!
