Pet of the Week - Feb. 13, 2012

These mellow siblings are currently enjoying the Douceur Cat Colony.

Jay POW
Jay
his new cat colony  is like Disneyland for kitties with all sorts of shelves, cubby holes, catwalks and toys.

Best of all, now the felines can keep an eye on all of the humans in the lobby.  If you haven’t been in to visit, come on by during adoption hours (Wed.-Sun., noon-6 p.m.) to tour our new facility.

Jay is a handsome black tabby. He has magnificent owl like eyes and doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. This laid back 7 year old is a great age; he’s over the crazy kitten years but still likes to spend time chasing the laser beam.

His sister Lena hangs back a little until she gets to know you.  Once she is comfortable in her surroundings,  she likes to “talk” and tell you all about her day.  These siblings have always been indoors and love to keep human laps warm.

They really would like to be adopted together, as they would be lost if they were separated. They are easy to care for and will be happiest in a mellow household.

Come to Homeward Pet to meet Jay and Lena!  We’re located at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville.

Our shelter is open for visitors between noon and 6 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.  See all our adoptable dogs, cats, kittens and puppies at www.homewardpet.org.

February marks Homeward Pet’s 22nd year of helping homeless animals through rescue, shelter and adoption, and we’re working toward 220 $22-donations this month to help even more animals. Visit www.homewardpet.org for more information.

Hunter is a personable 8- year-old dog at Homeward Pet, who is looking for a special home. This handsome fellow is seeking the right living situation that has eluded him for so long.

Like so many unfortunate animals, he was mistreated as a younger dog, so he needs an experienced owner who will understand that he’s not comfortable in some social situations.

Hunter POWHunter is a wonderful dog who is seeking another chance to win someone over. He’s quite the charmer, so he knows it’s only a matter of time.

Hunter is looking for an owner who will provide him with a quiet home environment.

Busy households with lots of visitors make him uncomfortable and aren’t for him.

He requires an adult only home, and is not a good match for children or households with child visitors.

Hunter is good with cats, and while he doesn’t have much life experience with other dogs, he might be open to sharing a home with the right canine companion.

Prior dog experience and knowledge of the Cocker Spaniel breed will be required of all potential adopters.

Hunter is a smart dog who knows several commands. He is crate trained, house trained, and possesses great all-around house manners.

He loves to snuggle with his people and enjoys playing, especially with his cherished whiffle balls.

Hunter weighs 30 pounds and sports a beautiful, soft coat.

Please contact Homeward Pet or come in for a visit if you’re interested in this handsome guy!


February marks Homeward Pet’s 22nd year of helping homeless animals through rescue, shelter and adoption.

Events are planned all month to celebrate all that Homeward Pet and our amazing community of supporters have achieved over the last 22 years, while helping even more animals.

Cowboy POWCowboy is a handsome 9-year-old dog who sports a beautiful long black coat. He was previously living at an Eastern Washington sanctuary, but found himself needing a new home after a building there was destroyed by fire.  Now he’s excited to be at Homeward Pet, warm and safe, with a renewed hope for finding his forever home.

Cowboy is a personable and gentle boy who tips the scales at 89 pounds. Needing to lose about 20 of those pounds, he’s looking forward to meeting someone who will provide him with daily exercise and a healthy and regulated diet.

As a youngster, Cowboy was attacked by a cougar and lost one of his legs. He enjoys walking just as much as any other dog, and being a tripod doesn’t seem to slow him down a bit. Slippery floors and flights of stairs are harder for him to navigate, so he would appreciate a single story home with carpet or runners for traction.

Cowboy enjoys the company of other dogs and cats, and would be best suited for kids who are over 12 years old. He prefers children who are old enough or understand that he likes to be treated gently and respectfully.

A favorite of staff and volunteers alike, Cowboy will be a fantastic addition to a happy home! He absolutely loves people and he’s ready to assume his role as the family dog. He has wonderful house manners, a quiet disposition, and is easy to care for in general. He’s one of a kind and very special! Learn more about him on his foster family’s blog at www.abigailstails.blogspot.com.

Come to Homeward Pet to meet Cowboy!  We’re located at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville. Our shelter is open for visitors between 12 noon and 6 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.  See all our adoptable dogs, cats, kittens and puppies at www.homewardpet.org.

Brittney’s story will break your heart. Her loving owner was in final stages of cancer and was unable to care for her any longer.

At a time when she probably needed the comfort of her cat the most, the owner had to say goodbye to her sweet Siamese kitty.

Unfortunately, she was surrendered to a shelter in eastern Washington which experienced a bad fire in their wood stove two weeks prior.

Brittney lived in a building without heat until she was transferred to Homeward Pet. This blue-eyed seven- year-old was a little “shell shocked” when she first arrived but soon was soliciting attention from everyone. This sweet kitty deserves a wonderful new chapter to her life and we are hoping just the right person will come in and provide that for her.Come to Homeward Pet to meet Brittney!  We’re located at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville.

Our shelter is open for visitors between  noon and 6 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.

While most of us may expect to outlive our pets, it’s important to arrange care for them as you would for the rest of your family.  Through our Companion Legacy Program, Homeward Pet will see that your pet is well cared for while we find them the best and most appropriate new home.

MegsPOWMegs is a playful young dog who was found as a stray in the Everett area.

After her owners could not be found, she came to Homeward Pet for a second chance at finding a home.

Megs is an eight-month-old adolescent who is very curious about the world around her and is eager to explore.

She weighs 48 pounds and is growing fast.

Now is the time for her new owner to enroll her in training classes, included with every adoption from Homeward Pet, that will help her develop into a well rounded adult.

She’s extremely intelligent and she learns very quickly, so the sky is the limit for her.

Megs is a high energy dog that will need plenty of daily exercise and a fenced yard.

She also needs to stay busy and engaged to remain happy and satisfied.

Some house training work and slow introductions to new dogs may be necessary.

She hasn’t been around cats before, and would be best suited for kids over eight years old who are sturdy enough to handle her rambunctious nature.

Megs has great potential and she’ll be a fantastic dog for someone who is willing to provide her with structure and guidance. This active and outgoing sweetheart is ready to settle in and love to her heart’s content. All she needs is a chance to prove herself to some lucky person. Come to Homeward Pet to meet Megs!

We’re located at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville.  Our shelter is open for visitors between noon and 6 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.  See all our adoptable dogs, cats, kittens and puppies at www.homewardpet.org.
