Recognizing the importance of pets
PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap strives to keep pets with their owners PET RETENTION
BY ERIN JENNINGS Kitsap Week
he struggling economy has caused more than lost jobs and foreclosures. It's also caused heartache for pets and their families. “In the three years since the downturn of the economy, pet shelters nationwide have been besieged by pet surrenders, which were done purely for financial reasons,” said Mark Hufford, executive director of PAWS of Bainbridge and North Kitsap. But before we go any further, let's clear up the name confusion. The PAWS in this article is an independent organization. It’s not affiliated with any of the 40 organizations nationwide that use the name PAWS. So what does the local PAWS do? “We are more than just the cat adoption center on Miller Road [on Bainbridge Island]. That’s only about one-sixth of what we do,” program director Marylou Zimmerman said.
An important mission of PAWS is to help pet owners keep their furry friends. This is accomplished by providing low-income spay and neuter services, veterinary assistance, and stocking pet food at local food banks. “We do what any caring neighbor would do if their neighbor came to them and said, ‘I lost my job and my dog needs surgery,’ ” PAWS executive director Mark Hufford said. “We help low-income families and provide direct financial assistance to care for pets of low-income neighbors.” Locally, he estimates PAWS has helped more than 1,000 pets remain with their owners. PAWS asks the question, “How can we help families keep their pets?” If a dog suffers from an ear infection and the owner can’t afford treatment, sometimes the owner believes the only option is to turn the dog over to a shelter in order for it to receive medical care. That is where PAWS steps in to help provide financial
assistance. “I believe we’re the only organization in all of Western Washington with a program of this type, and there’s no question it’s helped stem the tide of potential pet relinquishments,” Hufford said. He estimates that since the stock market crash in 2008, PAWS has helped more than 1,000 pets remain with their owners. Keeping the pet out of the shelter benefits the animal and its owners. “If you are at a lowincome level, everything is already stressful,” Zimmerman said. “Being able to have a connection with a pet that is uncomplicated is great for the whole family.” In the two years since PAWS began its pet food drive, Zimmerman estimates PAWS has helped to distribute 12 tons of food to local food banks. “They can’t keep it on the shelf,” she said.
PETS AND LOVING SENIORS (PALS) Based on research showing that living with or interacting regularly with pets lowers rates of heart attack and heart disease, PAWS has teamed up with seniors in the community to connect then with other seniors — senior cats, that is.
“Being able to have a connection with a pet that is uncomplicated is great for the whole family.” Marylou Zimmerman, program director for PAWS of Bainbridge and North Kitsap
Through this program, an older cat is placed in the home of a senior, and PAWS maintains ownership of the cat. (That way, if the foster parent needs to move to a different location where animals aren’t allowed, the cat will be returned to PAWS.) PAWS also covers the cat’s expenses. And because older cats are more difficult to adopt (most people prefer to adopt kittens or younger cats), this program helps get an older cat out of the shelter and into a home. “As a senior, having a warm, loving body in your house may be your only daily connection with something else,” Zimmerman said. “It’s a nice connection for the seniors, and it’s great for older pets.”
Among the many services PAWS offers is veterinary assistance help for low-income pet owners. Courtesy photo

schools and libraries. It takes a special dog and the training is rigorous — the instructor tests how well the dogs do with loud noises, medical equipment and shouting.
PET ADOPTIONS The PAWS adoption facility on Bainbridge is strictly for cats, but it offers a personal shopper service to help families find the perfect dog. Here’s how it works: an adoption specialist sits down with the interested party and asks a lot of questions, such as “What are you looking for in a dog?” “What is your family like?” By asking questions, the adoption specialist can help narrow down the types of dog that would be the best fit for the family. Then the specialist begins to scour websites looking for the right dog. Specialists are familiar with how to decipher listings on the Internet — think doggie personals. “Would do best living in a house without felines” may mean the dog enjoys chasing cats. The goal is to help find the right match for the dog and the new family. Taking the time up front to figure out what type of dog would best suit the family helps to prevent the dog from being returned. If, say, the See PAWS, Page 3

ANIMAL WELFARE ORGANIZATIONS IN KITSAP
prospective family prefers low-energy activities, a border collie wouldn't be the right fit.
PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap: PAWS’s service area is Bainbridge and North Kitsap from Hansville to Silverdale. Info: www. pawsbainbridge.org. Rescue Every Dog (R.E.D): Kitsap-based, but help dogs throughout the state. Info: www. rescueeverydog.org. Kitsap Humane Society: Located in Silverdale. Info: www.kitsap-humane.org. The organizations all work together, with the common goal of helping pets and owners. Abby Ouiment, director of public relations for the Kitsap Humane Society, said, “Sometimes in the non-profit world, people think you’re competitive for donor dollars and publicity. But in the animal welfare world, people really care about the animals, so it’s whatever it takes to get them adopted.”
Continued from page 2
DONATIONS Like most non-profits, PAWS relies on donations to help cover expenses. Requests for veterinary assistance have gone up 30 percent per year, for three years in a row. In order to meet the continuing demand, Hufford said PAWS has a goal of raising $75,000 by Jan. 1. During the month of October, the first $10,000 in online donations will be matched dollar for dollar by an anonymous donor. (Donors can donate via the PAWS website; see sidebar for details.) Hufford is constantly amazed with the generosity of the community — down to its youngest members. “We’ve had kids (operate) lemonade stands for PAWS,
or some ask for donations to PAWS instead of birthday gifts,” Hufford said. “When that happens, it just about knocks you over with a feather.” And while there has always been a percent-
age of the population that struggles financially, Zimmerman said the group has grown larger. “We get assistance requests from people that used to be our donors,” she said.

BREMERTON PATRIOT Olympic High School program provides dresses for school dances: “Isn’t it $100 for a dress?” a student casually asked as she walked into Olympic High School with several dresses slung behind her back. Catherine Kamp, a volunteer for the “Oly Boutique” corrected the student: The dresses are free. The Oly Boutique, run by Kamp and Katie Fanua, the school’s security guard, is a program where donated dresses are provided to girls for the high school’s dances at no charge. The girls can keep the dress or donate it back to the program. — bremertonpatriot.com. CENTRAL KITSAP

Kristin Okinaka / Bremerton Patriot REPORTER Largest cuts ever for school district: An estimated $6.8 million will need to be cut from the 2012-13 school year budget for the Central Kitsap School District. Where to start is everyone’s question.
“It’s a little nerve-racking because we’ve already had some big cuts already,” said Lori Durham, who has a son in the school district. Because of its loss of federal monies in lieu of taxes — about $4.3 million for next school year — as well

“McBane Family’s Remains Found in Abandoned Barn at Fairgrounds.” This year, Lester and Otis are having a family reunion! It has been 23 years since the family disappeared, and the murders are still unsolved. It has been rumored that Otis and Lester are cannibals; that Lester finds potential victims through his work at the carnival. Otis is the one who captures and butchers the selected few. The sheriff is looking for volunteers to go to the abandoned barn where the McBane family was first found. He thinks that evidence may be found and believes that the only way to do this is to rely on strength in numbers, feeling that Otis and Lester wouldn’t dare take on hundreds of people at once. There are not very many brave enough to volunteer to go…are you?

Age-old traditions continue to delight
Chinese acrobats will entertain in Bremerton BY: ERIN JENNINGS Kitsap Week
he Chinese acrobatic traditions that have been around for more
than 2,000 years will take to the stage in Bremerton on Sunday. “The Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats will perform death-defying and gravitydefying acts,” said Cynthia
Dike-Hughes, spokesperson for the troupe. The troupe consists of 13 young people, all from China and all professional acrobats. Chinese students graduate from high school at the age of 16 and then either go on to college or begin a career. Aspiring acrobats begin training at the age of 6 or 7 and attend specialty schools. In the morning, they are taught the three R's; in the afternoon, they perfect their acrobatic craft. By the age of 16, they are considered professionals and begin their careers. “It’s quite prestigious to be an acrobat in China,”
Dikes-Hughes said. “Many acrobatic families pass down the tradition.” Unlike modern jugglers who may use bowling balls and glow sticks in their acts, the acrobatic tradition is all about utilizing what people have on hand. Jugglers perform with chairs, pots, tables and vases. And while Dike-Hughes will not give away all the surprises in the show, she did point out some highlights: such as the two strong men who balance off each other and contortionists who bend their bodies in ways you didn't know were possible. And then there is the bicycle pagoda. Unlike a typical Schwinn, this bicycle holds not one rider but 13. The Shangri-La Acrobats have performed for 32 years across the country. Dike-Hughes said it's a very family-friendly show and entertains all ages from young children up to grandparents. From acts using diabolos (a type of Chinese yo-yo) to spinning plates to flipping through hoops, there is something to keep everyone entertained.
THE SHANGRI-LA CHINESE ACROBATS The acrobats will perform on Oct. 16 at 3 p.m. at Bremerton Performing Arts Center, 1500 13th St., Bremerton. The event is sponsored by West Sound Entertainment Association. Individual tickets for Sunday’s event are $30 for adults and $10 for students. Season tickets for the 2011-12 West Sound Entertainment shows are $65 for adults, $35 for students, and $150 for families. Ticket info: www.kitsapconcerts.org. Show info: www. iaipresentations.com.
“Not only is it a chance to have fun with your family, but it's also a slice of Chinese culture,” Dike-Hughes
said. “It's something different. It's not just another movie or video game, but it's something special.”

Safely dispose of your medicine
Who are you again? What to do when you forget a name Dear Erin, How do you handle a situation when you forget the name of a person that you have casually known for years? Stammering in Seabeck Dear Stammering, The older I get, the more this happens to me. Just last week I ran into an acquaintance that I've known for 10 years. I remembered lots of details: her children's names, her hometown and even her dog. But for the life of me, I couldn't recall her name at that exact moment. When this happens — and it happens to the best of us, I suggest being overly polite and honest. “I am so sorry, but I’m having a brain freeze. Can
ASK ERIN By ERIN JENNINGS you please remind me of your name again?” Then go on to point out that you do indeed remember the person, such as, “I know our children were in third grade together,” or “I met you at the Robinsons’ party.” That way, the person
knows you haven’t forgotten them, just that you temporarily can’t recall their name. If anyone has suggestions on what to do when a person persistently forgets that you've met before, send me your ideas. There is one person whom I have met probably eight times and each time she acts as if she's meeting me for the first time. I am running out of politeness with her. And no, she doesn't suffer from prosopagnosia – a disorder of face perception. She remembers other people, just not me. — Ask Erin is a feature of Kitsap Week. Have a question?

Keep your family safe by properly disposing unwanted drugs. On Oct. 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Sheriff ’s Office in the Kitsap Mall (near the Food Court), people can drop off their unwanted medicine. As opposed to flushing unwanted medicine down the drain, this is a preferable way of disposing of medicine. (Throwing medicine away in the garbage or down the drain can pollute the environment and water supply.) At a similar event in April, 185 Kitsap people brought in 400 pounds of medicine.
GUIDELINES: ■ Prescription and over the counter substances will be collected. ■ Law enforcement will not make an effort to identify participants. ■ All solid and noninjectable liquids will be accepted, for example, cough syrup. ■ Insulin is not accepted. ■ Syringes and other medical waste will not be accepted. ■ Illicit substances such as marijuana or meth will not be accepted. ■ All drugs must be in a container or bag. ■ Drugs cannot be loosely mixed in containers or bags.
Safe medicine disposal helps to reduce drug abuse and accidental poisoning. File photo

Author, coach shares insights at ShareNet benefit KINGSTON — Leadership and coaching expert John C. Maxwell has written more than 60 books, primarily focusing on leadership. His books have sold more than 19 million copies, with some on the New York Times Best Seller List and translations in more than 50 languages. He’s one of 25 authors and artists named to Amazon. com's 10th anniversary Hall of Fame. Every year, Maxwell conducts seminars for Fortune 500 companies, international government leaders, and organizations as diverse as the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the National Football League. And now he’s coming to Kitsap County to share his insights, with all registration fees donated to ShareNet Food Bank in Kingston thanks to event sponsors Parker Financial LLC; Sherrard, McGonagle & Tizzano, Attorneys at Law; Haven in Allyn, Long Term Care; and www.nextdoorhs.com. The event, “The Five Levels of Leadership featur-
ing Dr. John C. Maxwell,” is Nov. 1 at the Kitsap Convention Center Harborside, next to the Bremerton ferry. It’s a major fundraiser for ShareNet, which has launched its Neighbor Aid 2011 campaign. Last year’s Neighbor Aid campaign covered almost half of ShareNet’s annual budget and enabled it to meet 8,500 needs – food, keeping electricity on when faced with a shutoff notice, paying rent when faced with eviction, and providing take-home food for the weekend for school children. That number is according to ShareNet director Mark Ince, who is one of four part-time employees. Ince said ShareNet’s annual budget is about $150,000. Food bank hours are Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5-7 p.m.; and Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ShareNet is one of eight registered food banks in Kitsap County. Its defined service area is Kingston, Eglon, Hansville, Indianola, Port Gamble, and parts of Poulsbo and Suquamish. Barbara Brumagin, min-
istry coordinator at Bayside Church, said Maxwell will provide leaders of businesses and other organizations, as well as their staffs and team members, with key leadership principles they can apply to all facets of their lives.

More on Maxwell: Three of his books sold one million copies each: “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership,” “Developing the Leader Within You,” and “The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader.” For more than 30 years, Maxwell has led churches in Indiana, Ohio, California, and Florida. After serving as senior pastor for 14 years, in 1995 he left Skyline Church, near San Diego, to devote himself full-time to speaking and writing. However, in 2004, he returned to congregational ministry at Christ Fellowship in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., where he is currently a teaching pastor. On Nov. 16, 2008, he began serving as a guest pastor
at the famous Crystal Cathedral in Orange County, Calif. His messages are broadcast worldwide on the Hour of Power television program, seen by an estimated 20 million viewers. Maxwell serves on the Board of Trustees at Indiana Wesleyan University and has a building named after him there, the Maxwell Center for Business and Leadership.
