Homeward Bound | February 2018

Meet Your Match!

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I have been working with the Seattle Animal Shelter to help improve the adoption rate of older pets. One of the goals was to engage with our senior population. We are holding our first info session at the Greenwood Senior Center on Wednesday February 14th from 1—2:30pm.  This is a great opportunity to learn about available pets at the shelter,  how to become a foster parent, and learn about their Fospice (hospice for fosters) program.

This is a FREE event and should be a lot of fun!  We’ll have a couple of pets on hand for you to meet.  Have questions?  Call Sandra at 206-271-7100. Greenwood Senior Center | 525 N 85th St, Seattle

Could One of These Older Gentlemen Be Mr. Right?






Doobie is a regal 17 year old who has a great temperament and loves to be petted and brushed. As an older gentleman, he prefers a quiet household.






Ed is an 11 year old super confident guy! He’s never met a stranger and is curious about everything. He enjoys attention and has excellent manors.





Cloud is a beautiful 15 year old Siamese who enjoys making new friends. He is well behaved, but does have a tendency to chew on house plants.  Just offer him cat grass instead.

License Your Pet and Get a FREE Rabies Vaccination!

Protect Your Pet (license and rabies vaccination clinic)

Third Saturday of each month, 10-11:30 a.m. at the Seattle Animal Shelter, 2061 15th Ave W, Seattle

Purchase or renew your pet’s license at the Seattle Animal Shelter during this clinic and receive a free rabies vaccine for the licensed pet from Good Neighbor Vet. Microchips and other vaccines will be available for an additional fee.

Services are first-come, first-served. All dogs must be leashed, and all cats must be in carriers. Previous vaccination records are not required, but you are encouraged to bring them, if available.

Benefits of a Seattle pet license

Lost pets are returned home. If someone finds your pet roaming the neighborhood, SAS will call you to help ensure your pet makes it home.

A Ride Home. Officers make every effort to return licensed animals while in the field preventing your pet from coming to the shelter.  Redemption fees apply.

Worry-free Vacations. You can notify the Seattle Animal Shelter when you are on vacation and someone else is caring for your pet. Simply call Seattle Pet Licensing at 206-386-4262.

Contact in Case of Emergency. Helps veterinarians contact you should your pet become injured and in need of life-saving medical treatment.

Support the Seattle Animal Shelter!

2018 Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation Calendars are still available on Amazon at amazon.com/dp/B077R95W5P

It’s not too late to get your Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation calendar!  Proceeds from the calendar go to the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation.  You all need a 2018 calendar, so please join us for this easy way to support the shelter.  Each month, the calendar will bring a smile to your face.  Steve and I have been enjoying ours!








Meet The Incredibly Cute Mr. Dash!

Dash is adorably cute!  This little love bug was found as a stray.  The streets are a tough place and he was very shy when he first arrived at the shelter.  However, in foster care Dash has been blossoming and is now ready for adoption.

Dash is a super snuggler once he gets to know and trust you. He enjoys walks and having his belly rubbed. He would do best in a dog experienced, adult only household.  Strangers and other dogs make him nervous.  Dash does well with positive reinforcement as he continues to build confidence and trust.





In 2018 Adopt Don’t Shop!

Reminder that the Seattle Animal is a great resource for all types of pets!  They typically have a good selection of dogs, cats, bunnies, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice and occasionally birds and reptiles.  If you are thinking of adding a new family member this year, I encourage you to check out the Seattle Animal Shelter first.

Meet Blue!

Blue is a fun-loving, friendly, energetic 5 year old boy looking for a dog-savvy family to join.  He loves people, is very playful and highly treat motivated. Blue would be a great companion for active people. He would be happy to join you on a run, hike, or long walks.  At the end of the day he looks forward to snuggle time. Blue would be best as a solo dog.

Why We Support the Seattle Animal Shelter

Steve and I are super excited about supporting the Seattle Animal Shelter again in 2018!  As you all know by now, I am a huge animal lover!  My home life includes 12 pet pigeons in an outdoor aviary, a ring neck dove and pionus parrot in my home office, two 3 year old cats and, thankfully, a very easy-going husband! All but one of the pigeons are rescues, the dove is a rescue and our 31 year old parrot was adopted 11 years ago, and, of course, the two cats were adopted from the Seattle Animal Shelter and PAWS. I’m a huge believer in giving animals a second chance.

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 the 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
