2019, A year in review
It’s something to think about starting a whole new decade in just a few weeks! 1980 still feels like it was 20 years ago. Aren’t we lucky to have progressed from the ‘pounds’ and holding centers that homeless pets had to endure back then? Spay and neuter services have drastically (and positively) affected animal welfare as a whole, and for that, we are so grateful.
2019 brought us so many things. We saw more than 7,000 cats; more than 4,000 dogs; and 2,500 community cats. We increased our transport services to help shelters throughout the state increase their capacity for adoption. We entered into a partnership with the ASPCA. And, we saw over 100 pit bull type dogs in early April, supported in full by the Stand Up for Pits Foundation, founded by comedienne, Rebecca Corry.
Northwest Spay and Neuter Center remains Washington State’s largest nonprofit spay and neuter center. We have provided affordable care to nearly 130,000 animals since we opened our (tiny, little) doors back in 2008. Your support, advocacy, and assurance is needed in order for us to continue to provide this lifesaving work.
We are all in this together, and we can’t thank you enough for all of the love you continue to show the pets that love you more than anything. Happy Holidays.
