Mud Bay is celebrating the opening of our Lynnwood Center store on July 18th at 9:00 a.m. by holding a pet food donation drive to benefit PAWS. Anyone who wants to bring dog or cat food to our Lynnwood Center store will have that donation matched by Mud Bay and delivered to PAWS in August. We’re also hosting an online grand opening giveaway of four pet supply baskets—two cat-themed and two-dog themed—for anyone who wants to enter.

Pet Food Donations Needed in the Midst of ‘Baby Season’

This time of year, PAWS, like many other shelters is caring for large numbers of puppies and kittens. This time of year, called ‘baby season’ is further complicated because PAWS also cares for wildlife as well.

“During the spring and summer baby season, PAWS Wildlife Center takes in about 70 percent of the 5,000 injured and orphaned wild animals received all year,” explains PAWS Director of Marketing and Communications Laura Follis. “It’s also a time of year when we receive most of the 1,600 kittens and puppies who come to PAWS. These underage cats and dogs require additional resources including vaccines and spay or neuter surgery.”

While any food is gratefully accepted, Laura had some suggestions for foods that are regularly used at PAWS:

  • Wellness Core Kitten
  • Nutrisource for Kittens and Cats
  • Nutrisource for Puppies and Dogs
  • Wet cat food with a chunky texture
  • Limited protein foods for dogs and cats
  • Freeze-dried fish treats

We’ll be accepting any donations and matching them pound-for-pound from July 18 through August 17 to benefit this fantastic animal welfare organization.

Picked out a fancy beef trachea at Mud Bay 💗
"Puppy Eyes" are real! The raised eyebrows and sweet look from your pup has been found to be another way dogs have evolved to communicate with humans.
Share your dog's sweet puppy eyesand tag @mudbay! 😍

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

Mud Bay has always supported animals and people, and we strive to make Mud Bay an equally wonderful place to work and to shop. Today, we remember Martin Luther King, Jr., his legacy and the important work that's been done. 

Mud Bay is committed to understanding how we can realize true equality of opportunity within our company for Muddies, Mud Bay customers and Mud Bay business partners who are Black, Indigenous People or People of Color. We are still listening and learning. We acknowledge that we have a lot of work to do and redo, but we are committed to making time, allocating resources, and doing our part.
