General Information


This community is passionate about our pets. At KIRO 7, we are too. That’s why 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 & Adoption event. In just a few short years, the campaign has become a signature, station initiative that extends across all KIRO 7 platforms and supports shelters across the region to provide critical care for animals in need. 

In 2020, KIRO 7 will hone the purpose of Project Paws to raise awareness and attention for those animals that need a little more attention. Through a partnership with the Pawsitive Alliance – with an emphasis on the #WhynotMepets program - KIRO 7 will strive to give these “underdogs” a better chance of finding their forever homes.  

KIRO 7 will again this year host the PROJECT PAWS Pet Expo & Adoption in September. By partnering with the Pawsitive Alliance, the 2020 event is expected to offer more opportunities than ever for members of our community to provide a forever home to a pet in need.
