IDAHO – The Palouse Animal Wellness and Surgery Center (PAWS) has been selected as the Idaho Small Business of the Month for January 2023, Idaho Senator Jim Risch has announced. PAWS will also be recognized in the Congressional Record of the U.S. Senate.
In a short statement, Senator Risch commended owners Jim and Kathy Miller for the care they provide the city of Moscow.
“Palouse Animal Wellness and Surgery is an integral part of Moscow’s community,” said Senator Risch. “Owners Jim and Kathy Miller love Moscow and that same sentiment and care is reflected in what they do each day for their animal patients. It is with great pride that I recognize PAWS as the Small Business of the Month for January 2023. PAWS sets the bar high for local gems to give back to the community. PAWS’ recognition is well-earned.”
Founded by Dr. Don Kubasch in 1995, PAWS was later purchased by Dr. Kathy Miller. Dr. Miller, a graduate of the Washington State University School of Veterinary Medicine, and her husband Jim, have made educational opportunities an important part of the clinic and maintained accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association for over a decade.
Each month, Senator Risch selects an Idaho small business that exemplifies the Idaho values of hard work, entrepreneurial spirit, and exceptional commitment to community.
