Happy Tail – Artemis!

Artemis (formerly Widget) is doing great!

She has very firm opinions, and is very much the Princess of the house. She enjoys grumbling about things that aren’t EXACTLY her way, and it’s pretty adorable. She viciously attacks felt mice, and “da bird” is her favorite thing.  She and Booster play chase and wrestle all day long, and then give each other baths, and take naps all snuggled together. You would have no idea she is 8 years old, she wears out poor Booster, who is about 4, and still wants to keep going.

She is the sweetest cat, and enjoys laps, as long as she is sure it was 100 percent her idea. Otherwise, she grumbles until you pretend like you can’t see her, and then she sneaks onto your lap.

I could go on and on about everything they do together, but it really was the perfect match for both of them.  Thanks so much for everything you guys do!  -CoreyIMG_20170107_213632_854

Willow Strikes a Pose!

Unlike most cats, Willow LOVES belly rubs and will even knock over her water dish to roll over for them!

Willow came to Homeward Pet with severe thickening of the cartilage in both ears making it difficult for her to hear and for our clinic team to clean. After removing the excess cartilage, she has become one happy cat!  While she is still healing and being monitored by the clinic, she is not yet available for adoption.  Keep an eye on the website for when she is ready to meet her forever family. 

She is pictured with volunteer and Cat Behavior Team trainer Molly.Willow (240x300)

Volunteering for Snuggles!

Angie, one of our outstanding dog-walking volunteers and a member of our Dog Behavior Team, gives AND gets some attention from Ricky and Lucy, a pair of senior long-haired Dachshunds who just recently arrived at Homeward Pet (and will be available for adoption after they get their health check-ups).

Take Action!

A bill to repeal Washington’s breed discriminatory legislation ordinance is being considered in the current legislative session.  SB 5094 would take a step toward eliminating using breed as a factor when determining if a dog is dangerous or potentially dangerous.  If you oppose legislation that deems a dog as dangerous based solely on their breed or appearance, now is the time to call your state senator, and express your support for SB5094.

Pet Lovers!

This weekend, Peggy, our Community Development Director, “earned” her Pet Lover Badge from Scout Troop #46719 who visited Homeward Pet to drop off the cat toys and dog treats they’d made, and say ‘hi’ to our thankful dogs and cats.  Thank YOU! to these fantastic, pet-loving scouts…and congratulations, Peggy!

Homeward Headlines Sponsor – John L. Scott Woodinville

John L. Scott Woodinville and Homeward Pet are next-door neighbors!  Sharing a parking lot has its perks, one of which is using Homeward Pet as the landmark when giving directions to our office. Response is usually, “Oh, yes, I know where that is!” Another is observing the time and devotion Homeward Pet’s staff and volunteers spend on improving the lives of their resident dogs and cats. We support them when we can, whether it is sharing our large meeting room or participating in one of their many events (we love the Happy Tails Wine Walk)! Visiting with Homeward Pet volunteers and their dogs as they stroll by our office is a bright spot in our day!

If you are considering making a move to Woodinville, or perhaps another area in or around Seattle, we can help!  JLSWDV front (300x169)

Love is in the Air

This February Homeward Pet is celebrating 27 years of making matches!

Come and find your one and only at our Anniversary Adoption Event taking place February 25, from 12 to 6pm. For one day only, all adoptions will be $27, bettering your chances at finding the lifelong companion you’ve always dreamt of!

Homeward Pet is one of Washington State’s leading non-profit, no-kill animal shelters. Since being founded in 1990, we have united more than 27,000 cats and dogs with loving families through rescue, shelter and adoption programs.

Supporters can show their love for the animals in February with a $27 donation to the shelter! A meaningful gift of $27 can feed a litter of kittens for a week, provide a year’s worth of vaccinations for a cat, or pay for a microchip implantation and lifetime registration for a dog.

Find your valentine this February!

Want your love to linger all year long? Become a monthly sustainer with a donation of $27 a month!


New Food Bank Partner!

We have just added the Snohomish Community Food Bank to our network of partners.  The Homeward Pet Food Bank now distributes pet food and supplies to 7 area food banks, and other community organizations, helping 1000 families per week care for their pets and keep them in their homes.

Last year, the Homeward Pet Food Bank distributed over 110,000 pounds of food to local food banks and animal rescues, thanks to the generous support of donors, and the tireless efforts of our volunteers and the food bank workers.

Welcome (and thank you!) to the Snohomish Community Food Bank.

Learn more about the Homeward Pet Food Bank, and see the list of retail partners you can make a donation to support the Food Bank and help even more families and pets this year.
