  • 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.

  • Northwest Boxer Rescue
    Christian and his wife Heather rescued their first boxer in 2006, and then their second a short time later. The love and affection they came to feel for these once-forgotten dogs incited them to help find families for the thousands of similarly affected canines. Thus, Northwest Boxer Rescue was born in November of 2011 as a way to provide shelter, medical care, and, ultimately, a new home for homeless and abandoned boxers. Working in tandem with a committed cadre of volunteers and local veterinarians, the husband-and-wife team rehabilitates the dogs in temporary foster homes – never kennels, cages, or shelters – as a positive step toward finding a permanent home for each animal. Last year alone, Northwest Boxer Rescue managed to take in 415 Boxers, nursing each back to health through medical care and vaccinations, and spaying or neutering them to prevent the birth of future homeless animals. Since being placed in a permanent home, each of these excellent companion dogs have brought love and joy to their new family, and Northwest Boxer Rescue reports on many of these successful matches on their stories page.

  • Equine Aid Horse and Donkey Rescue
    Every day at Equine Aid Horse & Donkey Rescue in Monroe, Washington revolves around the needs of the animals who live there. Starting in the morning, volunteers feed the horses a mash of hay pellets and supplements. Sick and injured horses receive medication or boots to keep them healthy throughout the day. Then, the herd gets to frolic and play in an 18-acre pasture. Nearby, a 2-acre pasture gives the donkeys of the herd a place to explore the outdoors as well. With the herd out to pasture, the all-volunteer staff can then turn their attention to finding forever homes for these animals with families across Washington. When they're not caring for the animals, volunteers work with lawmakers to enact legislation that protects equines from slaughter and abuse.

Volunteers feed, groom, and care for the horses as they await foster care or adoption.
