  • Hopelink
    Hopelink strives to promote self-sufficiency for all members of the community through housing, financial assistance, family development, and other social services. Since 1971, the organization has helped tens of thousands of people move from vulnerability and crisis to independence and stability. Along with adult literacy programs, school-supply programs, and career development, Hopelink runs End Summer Hunger, an annual food and funds drive that helps ensure children from families with low incomes have enough to eat throughout the summer. Last year, End Summer Hunger—with the help of individuals, businesses, and schools—raised $181,439, plus thousands of pounds of food to meet the increased demands at Hopelink’s food banks during the summer months.

  • Motley Zoo Animal Rescue
    Motley Zoo Animal Rescue works to end pet overpopulation and the resulting deaths by euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets by placing rescued cats and dogs with foster families until they are adopted. By adding the step of fostering to the adoption process, Motley Zoo reduces overcrowding in shelters and aids in each dog's transition to a new, permanent family. To help ensure health and prepare animals for new homes, Motley Zoo provides necessary veterinary care, such as spaying or neutering procedures. Motley Zoo also pairs pups with basic-care necessities and medical records, which follow them through the foster process and later go to the dog's new owners.

  • Homeward Pet Adoption Center
    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
    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.

  • Yoga Behind Bars
    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.

  • A Pampered Pooch
    A Pampered Pooch cares for its canine clients with grooming, daycare, and boarding services, each designed to cater to owners as well as pets. A bath, brush, and dry leaves coats fluffy and free of grime, and nail trimming or grinding keeps pets from scratching up floors while tap-dancing. Dogs who arrive for daycare entertain in off-leash areas, where they play with other pups or with plenty of provided toys. Humans headed out of town can sign up their pets for boarding, which includes large personal suites and dog beds raised off of the floor. Owners can also opt for boarding add-ons that cater to their dog’s personality; staff can take active pups for a walk around the park or treat mellower dogs to one-on-one cuddling time or a midday bath and groom.
