<p>Located in Woodinville, Homeward Pet&nbsp;finds new homes for over 1600 cats and dogs,&nbsp;puppies&nbsp;and kittens every year. We are dedicated to providing excellent care to our animals, and great service to our two-legged visitors.</p> <p>Making Our Mission Work<br /> As a privately funded 501(c)3 charity, we rely completely on donor support to help us provide food, shelter, vet care and more to each homeless cat or dog in our care. Over 75% of every dollar donated goes to the care of our animals.</p> <p>Programs</p> <p>Adoption<br /> Our primary goal is to find new, permanent homes for every homeless dog and cat we take in.&nbsp; Our staff is knowledgeable and experienced at helping match adopters and pets based on lifestyle, experience, the needs of the animal, and other important factors, and providing&nbsp;our adopters the information they need to make each adoption a success.&nbsp;&nbsp;Through our&nbsp;ongoing Adopter Support&nbsp;program, we do our best to ensure that every adopted animal has a successful transition into a permanent, loving home.</p> <p>Rescue&nbsp;<br /> We partner with shelters and rescue groups throughout Washington state (and sometimes beyond) and families in the community that can no longer care for their dog or cat, to provide homeless, abandoned, unwanted and sometimes abused animals a second chance at a healthy, happy life with a caring family. For animals that may not be good candidates for adoption, we work to find alternatives including sanctuary and hospice care.</p> <p>Veterinary Care&nbsp;<br /> Upon arrival, every animal receives a full medical evaluation. Homeward Pet&rsquo;s veterinary team provides appropriate treatments, vaccinations and surgeries for each adoptable animal to be as healthy as possible.&nbsp; We spay/neuter and microchip every animal prior to adoption, helping to prevent more animals from ending up in shelters.</p> <p>Training and Behavior<br /> Every&nbsp;dog we take in receives the SAFER behavior assessment before being available for adoption. While at Homeward Pet, dogs that have behavioral issues, or are in need of&nbsp; socialization, receive daily positive training with our Dog Behavior Team. We include free dog training classes from Doggy Haven&nbsp;Resort&nbsp;with every adoption.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Our staff includes 3 recent graduates of the Humane Society of the United States/Pet Help Partners Cat Behavior Class,&nbsp;&nbsp;and our Cat Volunteers are trained to provide ongoing&nbsp;socialization.</p> <p>Volunteering and Foster Care<br /> Homeward Pet simply could not survive without the help of dedicated, caring animal lovers who generously volunteer at the shelter each week. Socializing kittens, walking dogs, answering phones, or opening their homes to provide foster care, our volunteers improve the quality of life for our dogs and cats while they await adoption.&nbsp;Learn more&nbsp;about volunteering at Homeward Pet. We support high school requirements for community service.</p> <p>Community Programs<br /> Homeward Pet is dedicated to helping our community by offering pet services to those in need. Our&nbsp;Low Cost Spay &amp; Neuter Clinic&nbsp;provides affordable surgeries for&nbsp;pet owners, helping to reduce the number of unwanted pets in our community. The&nbsp;Homeward Pet Food Bank&nbsp;provides pet food and other pet supplies to needy families, lending a hand to help keep pets in their homes.</p> <p>Continued Care&nbsp;<br /> Homeward Pet can help pet owners plan for their pet&rsquo;s welfare in the event of an owner&rsquo;s illness or death. Through our&nbsp;Companion Legacy&nbsp;program, a dog or cat will enter our adoption program, and we will ensure that they are well cared for while we find their new home.</p>
