  • Scrub-A-Mutt
    Save-A-Mutt began as Scrub-A-Mutt, an annual dog-wash event held each August to raise money for pet rescue. In the years since its first bubbly bash, however, the organization has expanded into finding homes for Craig's List pets, saving puppies from high-kill shelters, and providing medical care for dogs. Yet, Save-A-Mutt's methods are different from those of many other organizations dedicated to ending puppy mills. Seeing the high rate of euthanasia in LA County?nearly 35,000 pets were euthanized in the 2013?2014 fiscal year alone?Co-Directors Jennifer and Elizabeth rescue many of their pets from these high-kill shelters and transport them up to King County for spay/neuter surgery and adoption. In addition to the annual dog wash, which still happens every year, Save-A-Mutt runs Dogtober Fest in the fall and PoochFest in the spring. Proceeds from the events go to benefit local rescues such as Old Dog Haven, the Everett Animal Shelter, and The NOAH Center.

  • Summit Assistance Dogs
    Through its Monroe Service Dog Partnership, Summit Assistance Dogs recruits inmates at the Monroe Correctional Complex to help increase its capacity to train service dogs. After being taught extensively in the art of animal training, carefully screened and supervised inmates work in pairs during two months of dog training, during which they help to groom, exercise, and train dogs from shelters, all the while evaluating the animals’ progress and temperament. In turn, the participating inmates get an opportunity to serve the community, take on new responsibilities, and earn incentives for good behavior. Summit Assistance Dogs funds training staff and prison administration time, as well as training equipment and treats for the dogs.

  • Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project
    Spay and neuter surgeries change the lives of free-roaming cats. For females, it means a lower risk of infections and pregnancy complications; for males, less fighting and fewer health problems. When the Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project started in 1997, the mission was to spay and neuter as many free-roaming cats as possible, helping reduce overpopulation and the need for euthanasia deaths in community shelters. Today, the organization has expanded its work to include all cats, including those with homes. When a cat arrives for surgery, it also receives a basic health exam, rabies vaccination, and, for free-roaming cats, an ear tip to identify it as spayed or neutered. Since its inception, the Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project has performed the surgery on more than 82,000 cats. The organization collaborates with other like-minded groups and individuals striving to care for animals in a safe, humane environment.
