Homeward Bound | May 2018

Family Time!

May is the month that we think of our moms, however it is also a great time to think about all of our family members. In this issue you’ll notice a theme of “togetherness”.  At the shelter there are always pets available that come with a best bud.  Oftentimes the pets are siblings or are a bonded pair.  As you can imagine, it can take longer to adopt a pair of pets versus just one.  In the spirit of family we hope all of our dynamic duos get adopted together!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13th.  It got me to thinking about family and togetherness. My mom Murretta and father Jim have been residing with us for about five years now. It’s a bit of a throwback for me to have my mom cooking for me again, it has made me very spoiled to say the least.

To all the mom’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day. I for one, am fortunate to see my mom every day.

With appreciation,


Puppy and kitten season is upon us, but don’t forget that there are also many lovable, adoptable family members of all ages available at the Seattle Animal Shelter. Adopt! Don’t Shop!


Together Is A Wonderful Place to Be!

Family absolutely incorporates our pets as well! Most families wouldn’t be the same without them. Sometimes Seattle Animal Shelter takes in pets that already come with another family member. This can seem like a lot to take in, but there is nothing quite like the love between a bonded pair. The shelter always hopes that the pair will be adopted together.

Meet Asami & Korra!

These beautiful girls are a bonded pair and the best of friends. They both will eagerly take all the attention they can get! Asami is the more laid back of the two. She enjoys being picked up and adores head scratches. Don’t forget about Korra though, as she will look up at you with her perfectly lined eyes, competing for your attention. She can also be protective of her best friend Asami. Both girls are 2 years old and would love for you to take them home to join your family!


Meet Laverne & Shirley!

You could help these two “… make their dreams come true.”  Laverne and Shirley are best buds who get along well together and would make your family complete. Both girls are 3 years old mixed breeds. They are sweet, gentle, easy to handle, and would love it if you took them on a stroll through your neighborhood or to the park. Laverne loves to talk to you and smile at you with her adorable freckled face. Meanwhile Shirley will be rolled onto her back awaiting a belly rub and some snuggle time. How can you resist these two lovely ladies!

Meet William & Teddy!

If you’re looking for a pint sized duo for your family, check out William & Teddy! This pair of fun loving guinea pigs are looking for a moderately active household. They would love to be adopted together by a forever family. A nice spacious enclosure would be best to give them plenty of space to play and eat delicious carrots!

Why We Support the Seattle Animal Shelter

The Seattle Animal Shelter is, for the most part, a no-kill shelter.  Meaning, they will not euthanize an animal because of space or time.  They rely heavily on volunteers and donations. Please help us to help improve the lives  of these shelter animals!

We donate a portion of every transaction to their Help The Animals Fund. Donations to this fund are put to work in numerous ways to promote animal welfare. The top priority is to rehabilitate animals that are the subject of cruelty and neglect. Donations to this fund pay for veterinary care for shelter animals along with promoting educational outreach to prevent homeless, unwanted and abused animals. This fund also supports the shelter’s foster and volunteer program ensuring that each animal receives loving care while at the shelter.

With much appreciation –

Sandra & Steve
