PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap is supported entirely by private contributions. The overwhelming majority of our contributions are from individuals just like you, who support our mission to protect and re-home homeless, abused and abandoned animals. Without your support, our ability to provide the highest level of care for these pets would not be possible. Please donate to PAWS through the One Call for All Campaign this year.

dianaThe Board of Directors and staff would like to welcome Diana George as our new Executive Director. Diana is born and bred in Kitsap County. After graduating from the University of Washington, Diana became a Cytogenetics Laboratory Technologist for 11 years. During the latter part of her first career, Diana helped write a Kitsaparty grant for a local theater. The gratification of enhancing lives in her Kitsap community made her do a complete about-face in her life’s plans and embrace development and marketing, helping non-profits she is passionate about achieve their strategic goals.

Her first memory of volunteering,  helping her mom as House Manager for Bremerton Community Theatre at four years old. Later in life, they awarded her as “Woman of Many Hats” recognizing her 500+ hours of time working in various positions around the theater.

She comes to PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap, by way of Executive DIrector of CAPRI Heart and Lung Institute and Development Director for Tacoma Musical Playhouse.

In her other life, Diana still performs on various stages around the Puget Sound. She has three beautiful adult daughters, a wonderful leading man and two utterly and completely spoiled Welsh Pembroke Corgis.

“I don’t remember a time in my life without the companionship of a furry baby. It is truly an honor to be a part of this wonderful asset to Kitsap County and help others in this community enjoy the love and devotion that only an animal can share. A heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you for everything you do to make PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap the success that it is today. I look forward to meeting each of you and sharing your special PAWS success stories.”
