Memorial Gifts

There are several options to make a meaningful donation to PAWS in honor or memory of a special pet or person. 

Monetary Donation

Amount: No amount is too small!

Making a monetary donation to one of our special funds or our general fund, is a perfect way to show someone you are thinking of them. PAWS will send a personalized card to honor an extraordinary pet or person or express your condolences on the loss of a beloved animal or animal lover.

Memorial Patio Brick

Overlooking Happy Valley and providing stunning sunset views, our brick Memorial Patio is the perfect location to memorialize an important animal, individual, or group. The purchase of an engraved brick not only raises funds for animals in need, but also creates a beautiful lasting tribute. Please note that our order period for the Spring 2022 installation has passed. We are currently accepting brick orders for our Spring 2023 installation.
