Kitten Play Time!

Thelma and Louise now have an entire HOME to be active and playful in! Enjoy your new lives with your awesome adopters!

Biff’s Happy Tail!

Biff is a very fun dog with a great personality. He was really scared at first. He didn’t do well at night for a while. He is very comfortable now and doing amazing. He really likes our other dog Mucho too. He has gotten more and more playful and friendly as he has gotten to know us. We go on daily walks and play ball every day. He is very well trained. He doesn’t go in a crate, but never ever pottys in the house. He comes when you call him, sits and even throws the ball back when we are playing fetch.

Thank you for all of your hard work with Biff.

Cat Needs

The Homeward Pet food drive, network pick-up volunteers, are an awesome group of individuals picking up pet food from more than 25 retail partner stores who collect food for the animals year round. Since 2011 these retail partners have collected and donated over 400,000 pounds of pet food. This group of individuals have personally pick-up and transported the majority of this back to Homeward Pet. Without the effort of this awesome core group of volunteers Homeward Pet’s food collection network would not be what it is today.

Thank you Dick, Alethea, Laura, Char, Ed, Dava, Judy, Angela, Chris, Cara & Maddy, Lisa, Colin, Rob and many others throughout the years

Thank you,

Homeward Headline Sponsor ~ Doggy Haven Resort


David & Sadie

Doggy Haven Resort, a local full service dog resort for boarding, daycare, training and grooming, has been a Homeward Pet partner for close to 7 years. All Homeward Pet adopted dogs and their new families receive training classes with their adoption. The best bonding experience for both while also an opportunity to learn what their new canine knows about basic manners and general handling. Doggy Haven’s Dog Training classes are available to all. Check out their website for schedules and pricing.

Not only do they offer an amazing training program, they also offer daycare & boarding along with grooming services. They recently hired two new groomers to accommodate the growing demand for dog grooming in the area. Many grooming salons are booked many weeks to months in advance. With three groomers and being open seven days a week for grooming, Doggy Haven can accommodate your dog’s grooming and bathing needs quickly. “Doggy Haven Resort is surrounded by new homes and the new North Creek High School; the growth in the area is allowing us to continue to expand our services to meet the growing (dog) population.” Said David Boyd, owner.Doggy Haven Resort



Meet the Groomers
Debbie has been grooming professionally since 1995, and joined the Doggy Haven team October 2013. Puppies are her passion; she’s so excited to build trusting relationships with dogs and parents resulting in life long clients. There has always been a dog in her home, currently a Shih Tzu and an English Cream Golden Retriever. When asked about her new home she said: “The Doggy Haven family is “way too fun”!”



Leah has been grooming for over 10 years and began at Doggy Haven Resort in June and loves the passionate, family atmosphere. “Working with dogs is therapeutic for me, and my favorite part of the day is all the love and kisses I get from them. I have two dogs, a Blue Heeler who is almost six, and a Lab who is almost ten that are my whole world.” Leah is an excellent dog handler: “You can’t have a bad day when dogs are in your life!”

Lindsay (not pictured) has been grooming for 12 years and started at Doggy Haven Resort in June alongside Leah, and has loved every minute of it! “I have two dogs, a Lab, and a Havanese, as well as a cat. I have been grooming some dogs my entire career, but the best part of grooming is building the relationships, not only with my pets, but with my pet parents. Doggy Haven Resort has such a positive environment, where everyone is passionate about what they do.”


Doggy Haven Resort is located at 5303 W Interurban Blvd, Bothell, WA 98012. For tours, reservations and appointments call (425) 482-4472

Homeward Pet Staff – Favorite Stories

“A week and a half ago I adopted out Marie who had been here quite some time with horrible Calici virus in her mouth and throat, it was so bad she couldn’t eat because her mouth was bleeding. Dr. Jenny put a feeding tube in and that’s how we fed her for a few weeks. She eventually recovered and went to a wonderful home. Her new owner sent me an update, a photo of Marie in her new ‘bedroom’. Not bad for a kitty who was left behind in an apartment and never would have survived if we didn’t help her!”

I love the rags to riches stories!Marie (225x300)

-Laurel, Adoption Counselor & Cat/Kitten foster coordinator
