Darwin’s Natural Pet Products Continues Ongoing Partnership with PAWS for Annual PAWS Walk

First ‘true raw’ pet food supplier in the U.S. sponsors walkathon fundraiser with matching donation

SEATTLE – Today, Darwin’s Natural Pet Products announced it is expanding its partnership with PAWS, a Seattle-based animal and wildlife rehabilitation nonprofit, with a $25,000 matching donation for the annual PAWSwalk fundraiser. Together, the two organizations are encouraging animal enthusiasts to be active, build community, and raise critical funds to support the thousands of domesticated and wild animals expected to need help over the summer.

From June 2 to 22, 2024, PAWSwalk participants fundraise and log every mile they walk, run, hike, skip or stroll – often with a furry companion by their side. Darwin’s will donate $1 for every mile logged, up to $25,000, to help the organization reach its fundraising goal of $200,000. All proceeds go to support the dogs and cats served in the PAWS Companion Animal Shelter and the eagles, bears, songbirds and many other types of animals who receive lifesaving care in the new PAWS Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.

"We are long-time fans of PAWS and the vital work that they do to help both domestic and wild animals across the Pacific Northwest,” said Gary Tashjian, CEO of Darwin’s Natural Pet Products. “PAWS’ mission has so many similarities to our own and they share the same commitments to pet health that we do. We can’t wait to start logging our miles starting June 2.”

PAWS is holding a public kickoff event for the 32nd PAWSwalk on June 2 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Civic Center Playfield in Edmonds, Washington. During the kickoff event, there will be fun activities and useful resources for attendees and their dogs, nearly 50 vendors, a flyball showcase from the Cascade Comets, a route for participants to log their first mile, and entertainment from the radio station Warm 106.9.

"We are so grateful for Darwin’s contribution to our biggest annual community event and can’t think of a better partner to help us reach our fundraising goals,” said Andi Anderson, director of philanthropy and events at PAWS. “Like us, Darwin’s is all about promoting healthy, active lifestyles for the animals and families that they serve.”

Darwin’s invites the public to visit them at their booth during the kickoff event on June 2 where the food supplier plans to host swag giveaways and offer free samples of their new Beef Liver Treats.

Registration for PAWSwalk is open to anyone who has an interest in getting active and helping animals in need. There is no deadline to register for PAWSwalk, and every mile walked can be tracked and logged on the event website. To register for PAWSwalk, visit www.pawswalk.net.
