Dear Animal Lovers,

Cover Photo: Emma, a 2-month-old Labrador Retriever mix, adopted in October 2012.

We are coming to the end of another record-setting year at the Seattle Humane Society, and we have you to thank. In fact, we’ll place nearly 6,000 cats, dogs, and critters this year! Thanks to your generous donations, pets in our care receive food, shelter, and medical care for as long as it takes for us to find them a new family. We are excellent stewards of your donations, spending 80 cents of every dollar on the animals and earning a four-star rating — the highest possible for nonprofit agency financial management — from Charity Navigator for the fourth consecutive year.

13212 SE Eastgate Way Bellevue, WA 98005 Seattle Humane Society is an independent, donor-funded nonprofit animal welfare organization saving abandoned, stray and surrendered pets in our community. Editor Joyce Zoldak Designer Aubrey Miller-Schmidt

Thanks to your support of our Fund-A-Need project to expand spay/neuter services, we are set to achieve even greater accomplishments in the year ahead. We have added an additional surgery team and expanded our Recovery Center, tripling animal recovery space and allowing us to double the number of spay/neuter surgeries — to 5,000 annually — for pets belonging to low-income families. We are also excited to welcome fourth-year veterinary students from Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine to our campus in May 2013. These veterinary students will spay and neuter our shelter pets as part of their clinical training, affording Seattle Humane veterinarians the capacity to serve even more animals. As Seattle Humane continues to grow, we are able to care for more pets and find them new, loving homes. By increasing our affordable spay/neuter services, we are also able to reduce animals who are born unwanted and homeless and often end up in shelters. This means more lives saved, and we simply could not do this without your continued support. We thank you for all that you do now and all year long.

Humane Happenings: News & Updates Free Adoption Fair a Huge Success Seattle Humane found loving homes for more than 300 cats, dogs, and critters during our Free Adoption Blitz weekend and preview in October! This was our second annual fee-waived adoption fair and community members reconfirmed what we had learned in 2011 — that waiving adoption fees for pets can be the little incentive they need to come out and adopt. We learned that many adopters who had been considering adding a pet to their home for some time took the plunge at our fee-waived fair. Just like any day of the year, our adoption advisors ensured that great, lifelong matches were made. Robin and her two teens, Jenna and Adam, lost Seattle Humane was bustling with activity all weekend long during our Free Adoption Blitz! their family cat and had been considering adopting again. When they heard about our Adoption Blitz on National Public Radio, they were motivated to come take a look. The family Be Prepared for decided to adopt two 2-month-old kittens, Ion and Neutron, and they couldn’t Winter Emergencies have been happier! With winter upon us, we’d like to remind pet owners that a little preparation Kelly, a 6-year-old Chihuahua mix, traveled all the way from California to meet her now can make a big difference in the new family at our Adoption Blitz! Seattle Humane rescued Kelly from a shelter where event of a natural winter disaster. she had run out of time. Blanche brought her whole family down for our Adoption Blitz Seattle Humane Society partners with and they fell instantly in love with little miss Kelly and decided to adopt her. When the Red Cross to provide free temporary Blanche got home she sent us a photo of Kelly sound asleep in her son’s arms and shelter and care to pets in King County wrote, “Thank you for our fur baby Kelly. She had made our dreams come true — emergencies. Red Cross shelters what a love bug!” Thank you to everyone who came out and adopted a furry friend. do not accept pets unless they are service animals, so please keep Seattle Humane’s contact information handy. We can be reached seven days a week at A Walk to Remember (425) 641-0080 and are located at 13212 SE Eastgate Way in Bellevue. As backup, Our 10th annual Walk for the Animals speak with friends and family about at University Village brought well sheltering your pet and keep a list of over 1,000 people and their dogs out boarding kennels, veterinary clinics, and to support our mission and to have nearby hotels that accept pets. Leaving fun, raising more than $135,000 for pets behind is NOT a safe option. the pets at Seattle Humane Society. Walkers enjoyed breakfast treats, a 2-mile walk through the Union Bay Natural Area trails, a free photostop, goodies, giveaways, and more. After the Walk, the fun continued at FidoFEST with adoptable SHS animals, canine contests, vendor booths and even an agility course!

More than 1,000 animal lovers Walked for the

Animals on Sept. 23. Thank you to everyone who walked, fundraised, or made a donation to this year’s Walk for the Animals — we can’t wait to see you at next year’s Walk! Seattle Humane Society’s Walk for the Animals was presented by Safeway and supported by Carter Subaru.

Have a current photo of your animal in case they get lost. Make sure they are microchipped and wearing an ID tag. Call your microchip company to update your contact information and be sure to prep a disaster supply kit containing medications, medical records in a waterproof container, behavior notes, your veterinarian’s contact information and a first aid kit. Have an extra leash, collar, and carrier on hand as well as food, water, bowls, litter/pan, and a can opener. With a little preparation, you can ensure that you and your pet are prepared for winter emergencies. 3

Happy Tails

JoeyLynn’s Emergency Surgery JoeyLynn, a 6-year-old Toy Poodle mix weighing barely 10 pounds, was surrendered to Seattle Humane when her owners could no longer care for her. Our veterinarians discovered that JoeyLynn suffered from painful bladder stones and needed immediate surgery. When animals like JoeyLynn are brought to us requiring medical attention, our veterinary team is there to help. Thanks to our new partnership with Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, we will be able to care for even more pets in need with the help of fourth-year veterinary students receiving clinical training at our shelter. Liz Nordeen, a WSU veterinary student, and our staff veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Buchanan, teamed up to help JoeyLynn. Together, they performed cystotomy surgery, removing a golf-ball-sized bladder stone and 15 smaller stones that had been causing little JoeyLynn terrible pain and discomfort. JoeyLynn recovered from surgery in a wonderful volunteer foster home. She is feeling much better now because she got the care she needed and her tail has begun to wag again! JoeyLynn was adopted by an adoring family after she had fully recovered.

WSU veterinary student Liz Nordeen teamed up with Seattle Humane veterinarians to help little JoeyLynn.

Thanks to The Lexus Fund for shelter dogs in need of medical care, and to generous donors like you who continue to support it, we never have to turn away pets like JoeyLynn. Please make a donation to The Lexus Fund today at, (425) 373-5382, or by writing “Lexus” on your check.

Lean on Me Parenthood can be tough and sometimes it’s nice to have a little help. When mother and daughter cats Breesha and Mikki gave birth to unplanned litters just a few days apart, they were surrendered to the Seattle Humane Society in need of A LOT of support! This kitty family wouldn’t have survived at most shelters without the resources to give newborn pets the extra care they need.

Breesha and Mikki were able to care for their 13 kittens thanks to Seattle Humane Society's Foster Care Program.

Juli Ross, Seattle Humane Society’s Cat Foster Coordinator, volunteered to care for all 15 cats in her home, weighing them every two days to ensure they were growing at a healthy rate and watching over the whole brood. “I came up with memory tricks to remember all of their names like ‘Kona white shoulder’ and ‘Rogue the Escape Artist,’” says Juli. “But the most amazing part has been seeing the bond between these two mothers — how they console each other and support each other. One will nurse while the other perches above to retrieve any escapees!”

This dynamic family will never be forgotten, especially not by Juli, but as she aptly puts it, “Although Seattle Humane Society is a safety net for pets in need like Breesha and Mikki, pet owners everywhere have a responsibility. It’s easy to look at three generations of cats and remark on how cute they are, but it’s also important to remember that spaying just one of these cats a few years ago would have meant 14 fewer cats born without homes.” Thanks to Seattle Humane, all of the kittens are now in homes of their own. If you or someone you know would like to spay or neuter a pet but cannot afford to do so, please call (425) 649-7560 or visit Seattle Humane offers affordable spay/neuter services for pets belonging to qualified-income owners year-round. 4

Caring Corner

Animal Advocates Leave a Legacy Please remember the animals in your will or trust. Learn more at or contact our Major Gifts Officer at (425) 641-0080 or To leave a bequest, simply write: "I give to The Humane Society for Seattle/King County, Tax ID #91-0282060, (the sum of $__ or __% of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate) for its general purposes." If your gift involves insurance policies, land, stock or other property, please include a description.

Nancy A. Salvino, a Seattle native, had a fondness for pets and grew up in a house that was always full of them. As a child she was also active in local 4-H and enjoyed riding horses. You may say she inherited it from her mother, pet lover Joane Salvino. Joane asked that gifts be made to the Seattle Humane Society and Meals on Wheels when she passed away. Nancy’s love for furry friends continued throughout her life and she cared for her pets like they were children. Nancy’s most recent pets were two Golden Retrievers, Jody and Jennifer, and two cats, Kiki and Kitty. Kitty was adopted from Seattle Humane. Nancy donated generously to Seattle Humane for nine years. Her heart went out to shelter pets and she followed pets on our website to see if they had been adopted. One donation made to SHS in 2008 was accompanied by a letter asking if Duncan, an 8-year-old black Labrador Retriever, had been adopted. “He is on my mind every day,” wrote Nancy. Before Nancy passed away, she made Seattle Humane Society a beneficiary of her estate. Now Nancy’s legacy will live on in the life-saving work at Seattle Humane and will help us care for thousands of orphaned, abandoned and neglected pets every year. To learn how you can plan for your pets in your will or how to leave a lasting legacy for the animals at Seattle Humane, please call (425) 641-0080 or email


{ Keeping

Families Together } Seattle Humane Society’s Pet Food Bank


Seattle Humane Society’s Pet Food Bank began 30 years ago with a donor and a dream. In fact, Mimi Cristall still has the letter from the CEO — dated October 24, 1982 — thanking her for her generous donation to start the Seattle Humane Pet Food Bank. “Back then, even the largest human food banks didn’t provide pet food because pets weren’t a priority,” recalls Mimi. “But what they didn’t understand is that pets are family members. For many elderly or impoverished people, pets are their only family. Seattle Humane heard the call for help and they did something about it.” Thanks to compassionate donors like Mimi, Seattle Humane’s Pet Food Bank is now the largest in Washington state, helping to feed the pets of more than 1,800 lowincome seniors and people disabled by AIDS in our community. “People shouldn’t have to lose their pets because they’re down-and-out,” says Mimi. “The Pet Food Bank keeps people and pets together, promotes all the health benefits of pet ownership, and it also keeps pets out of shelters.” Because of our Pet Food Bank, every month more than 2,300 pets don’t go hungry and don’t end up in area shelters.


“I am so thankful for the Pet Food Bank,” says Dana. “I wouldn’t be able to keep my Toby happy and healthy without it — Seattle Humane has truly saved us.”


Like many Americans, Dana fell on hard times with the downturn in the economy and found herself struggling to feed her beloved cat, Toby. “The thought of having to give him up was unbearable,” says Dana as she snuggles Toby, a 1-year-old Siamese mix. “He’s my little guy.” Dana learned about Seattle Humane’s Pet Food Bank because it supplies her local community center. Now she picks up a monthly supply of cat food

for Toby as she works to get back on her feet. “I am so thankful for the Pet Food Bank,” she says. “I wouldn’t be able to keep my Toby happy and healthy without it — Seattle Humane has truly saved us.” Every month, 112 Seattle Humane volunteers pack, load and deliver donated cat and dog food to more than 30 community centers, senior centers and food banks, as well as more than 150 individual homes throughout King County. “One of the most amazing things about the Pet Food Bank is the group of volunteers that make it possible for us to distribute more than 3,700 pounds of pet food every week,” says Jocelyn Shope, Seattle Humane’s Community Outreach Coordinator. “When there is a senior who needs food delivered to their home, my inbox is filled with volunteers willing to drive anywhere to help out — just out of the goodness of their hearts.”


The Pet Food Bank


3,700 lbs. of pet food are


distributed every week so that

2,300 pets each month

don't have to go hungry, and

1,800 seniors don't have

to choose between feeding themselves or their pets.

Carin Sweerman has volunteered for the Pet Food Bank for two years, making monthly pet food deliveries to two community centers and two individual homes. Carin has delivered pet food to a senior named Daniel for more than a year. “I love going out to see Daniel and his cat, Aaron,” she says. “Each month, Aaron purrs around my legs and I get a big, appreciative hug from Daniel.” Carin’s newest client is Ron, a 90-year-old man who goes everywhere with his service dog, a big black Lab named Kirkie. “Kirkie looks after his owner and is truly his best friend,” says Carin. “Many seniors don’t have a lot of company. Their children are busy with their own lives, many of their loved ones have passed away and their animals fill a huge need for companionship. To know that I can help them keep their animal family is such a good feeling.” Seattle Humane’s Pet Food Bank continues to grow and in today’s economy, the most fragile members of our community need our help more than ever. If you or someone you know is a low-income senior or community member disabled by AIDS in need of pet food support, please call (425) 6497566 or visit To make a donation to our Pet Food Bank, visit donate/now. You can also donate food online through our Amazon Wish List at, or drop a pet food donation in our Holiday Pet Food Drive barrels at any King County Safeway store now through Dec. 31.

Hello, I just wanted to give you an update on Reese, the dog I adopted from Seattle Humane Society on July 28th. He is a great dog – part Chihuahua, part Pug – and a bright light in our family. I love him already. I have never adopted a dog from a shelter before, but it feels so good to give him a home where he can have love, a warm bed, and a place he can run around and play.

The Pooch Post & Mew Mail

I was so impressed with my whole experience at Seattle Humane and how well Reese was cared for while he was there. Now I’m spreading the word to get more of my friends to adopt from your shelter instead of buying from a breeder. There are so many dogs who need homes, as you know! I wish I could give all the dogs and cats a home and I will continue to pray for all of the animals. Again, thank you and bless you. Thanks again, Andrea G.

Hi, I just wanted to pass along a happy tail to let you know how blessed we are to have adopted Stuart from you last month. Thanks so much for taking such good care of him (he'd been with you since March!) until we could scoop him up. "Stu" is such a ham. He snores, he drools, he burrows under the covers - he never wants to be far from us! He's also getting along very well with our other cat... Thanks again for all the work you do. Here’s a photo of Stu watching TV – one of his many antics! - Allison and Jeremy
