November is Adopt A Senior Pet Month at Homeward Pet Adoption Center, when we focus attention on our more mature, more experienced, often more easygoing animals. Frequently overlooked during summer’s kitten and puppy season, an older dog or cat can make the perfect companion—and that’s why we’re singing their praises during our month of Golden Oldies!

A heartfelt thank you to Sno-Wood VCA Animal Hospital for sponsoring us and allowing discounted adoptions November 1 – 30!
Since assuming the role of Interim Executive Director I’ve experienced firsthand the commitment to compassion for the dogs and cats who pass through Homeward Pet. One of the things I enjoy most is taking a group on a tour of our facility and sharing adoption success stories. Visitors are always so impressed by the obvious care and consideration that is given to each animal from their arrival to their new loving home.
I want to take this opportunity to show how your generosity makes it possible for us to continue our mission of providing every animal a second chance through rescue, shelter and adoption. Your continuous support of our essential programs is the backbone of each success story you’ll read in our 2017 Annual Report. I hope you will join me in celebrating these victories for our community’s animals by reading our full report here.
Interim Executive Director
Looking for the love of your life? A devoted companion that would love nothing more than to be by your side? Becky is an affectionate and eager to please pup – she will be your copilot through all of life’s adventures. Becky will thrive in a home that can offer her consistency, and she adapts easily to routines: play time, walk time, meal time, sleep time, and her favorite of all times, snuggle time! A home that is on the quieter side would be best for her – apartments and condos would likely be a little too busy. Becky is looking for a home without any other pets so she can soak up all of your love, affection and attention. She is also looking for a loving adult-only home that will continue her training and help her reach her full potential. In return she will reward you with endless love and companionship.
Becky is a staff favorite at the shelter and Animal Behavior Manager, Jenny Black, has only the best things to say about her:
“Becky greets everyone with tail wags, wiggles, and kisses, no matter if she has already seen you ten times that day or is just meeting you for the first time. Her favorite things to do include cuddling, trying to perfect her very important job of being a lap dog, splashing in her pool, and learning new tricks! As if being happy and cuddly wasn’t enough, she’s also smart and athletic – can you ask for more? She’s a great walker on leash, she has the best smile, and she’s ready to be your best friend!”
Come in to learn more about her and see if Becky is a match!
Kelly Semple, SVA staff, shares this about SVA:
“Seattle Veterinary Associates (SVA) is a veterinarian-owned, locally-grown group of four practices to serve your pets’ medical needs. Our practices include Green Lake Animal Hospital, Queen Anne Animal Clinic, Northwest Veterinary Hospital, and Ravenna Animal Hospital. We also offer mobile services provided in the comfort of your pets’ own home through our SVA On The Go service. Our company was established in 1971 by veterinarians whose passion was to provide the highest quality medical care combined with building long-lasting relationships with their clients and patients. Led by our second generation of veterinarian owners, today we continue our founders’ passion and have been a mainstay in the Seattle veterinary community for over 47 years. We are committed to your pets’ healthcare by providing continuing education and supporting the special interests of our veterinarians and staff. We also collaborate with area specialty hospitals to ensure your pets always have access to gold standard veterinary care.
We support Homeward Pet because we know they are a quality rescue that really takes the same pride in their treatment of animals that we do. We hope that all of the pets who are adopted from Homeward Pet are able to continue to receive the same high level of compassionate care throughout their lives as their shelter offers. If a rescue can do it, their vet can, too!”
