Circus PAWS, a live-action, animal-free circus, features an original script with performances by members of Nathalie Gaulthier’s Le PeTiT CiRqUe, a troupe of young performers, ages 7-14, whose mastery of performance skills will thrill and amaze guests. Also featured is Kevin Axtell, a globally acclaimed juggler and fire artist. Three performances have been planned and will benefit the 100+ animals currently living at the Performing Animal Welfare Society’s three wildlife sanctuaries in Northern California. Many of these animals are rescued or retired circus performers.

Meet the individuals who have made this event possible.
