As one of the largest no-kill shelters in Washington, Homeward Pet Adoption Center helps find permanent, loving homes for more than 1,400 cats and dogs each year. Forty percent of its animals are owner surrendered, and sixty percent are rescues from shelters that euthanize. A range of rescue, shelter, and adoption programs help the small staff and more than 350 volunteers in their mission to give homeless and abandoned companion animals a second chance. Additionally, Homeward Pet’s onsite veterinary-care team spays or neuters all the animals that enter the shelter, along with providing a general health assessment, a microchip, and any necessary treatments or vaccinations.

Homeward Pet also extends help to animals in the community with owners in need of financial assistance. In 2012, Homeward Pet’s low-cost clinic spayed or neutered more than 500 pets, and its pet-food bank collected and distributed more than 40,000 pounds of pet food to local families struggling to feed their animals. It also offers year-round discount microchipping and free microchipping three times a year, to ensure the safety of pets in the community.

Heroes for the Homeless's all-volunteer staff provides individuals experiencing homelessness in the Seattle Metropolitan area with emergency services and survival supplies. They do so without expectation or cost, and regardless of age, race, and physical or mental capabilities. All they require is that clients be willing to accept assistance. Each month, the outreach team travels by car and by foot to supply emergency services for up to 650 individuals and their pets—with each volunteer serving a minimum of six months in order to build rapport with clients. Since its founding in 2006, the organization has served more than 51,000 sandwiches/meals and distributed more than 11,000 pairs of socks—the most requested item from clients due to limited access to laundry services.

With a mission to promote the safety and well-being of neglected, abused, and abandoned horses, Hope for Horses fosters and cares for horses as well as provides specialized training for law-enforcement and animal-control officers. As one of the oldest equine-welfare organizations in the state, Hope for Horses recognized the need for better resources for officers and developed the state’s first equine-cruelty-investigations-training course. Volunteers feed, groom, and care for the horses as they await foster care or adoption.

In 2003, Shaina Traisman taught her first yoga class in Seattle’s downtown jail. The students' blossoming interest in the class and the facility’s obvious need touched Shaina. So two years later, she founded Yoga Behind Bars to reach as many students as possible and helped increase the number of teachers involved. Every week, 35 volunteer instructors teach yoga poses, breath work, philosophy, and meditation exercises to more than 150 men, women, and children at correctional facilities across the region as a form of therapy and rehabilitation. The yoga classes are designed to grant the students inner freedom and help them overcome their stressors and destructive behavioral patterns for when they reenter society.

Each 90-minute assessment begins with the clutter cleanser journeying into the depths of a disheveled dwelling or office to observe, assess, and alter the clutter and negative energies that have taken up residence. Together, the professional organizer and the client identify the desired goals of a less-cluttered space. The services of The Composed Domain will help label useless items as clutter and facilitate the release of unneeded possessions into the wild, where they will forever roam the dumpsters and recycling bins of the earth. After the appointment, an old and busy space will transform into new and organized spaciousness.
