Honoring The NOAH Center in Stanwood

The International Society for Animal Rights (ISAR) first established International Homeless Animals’ Day in 1992. They bring people all over the world together to shed light on pet overpopulation and the spay/neuter solution. Animal protection organizations and concerned individuals come together on the third Saturday of August each year to raise awareness about the pet overpopulation epidemic. This year the day will be observed on August 19.

 

To draw attention to the spay/neuter solution in our area, we at Run Those Dogs wants to tell you all about The NOAH Center in Stanwood, WA. Since they opened, NOAH Center has found homes for more than 32,000 pets and has spayed or neutered more than 90,000 animals! Owner Jen Sewell volunteers there so she has seen the great work they do in the Stanwood area and throughout the Pacific Northwest.

 

“I have to say it’s the best shelter I’ve seen. They do such a great job getting the animals adopted, the people are great! If I didn’t have this business to run I’d want to work here! I love them!” –Run Those Dogs Owner Jen Sewell

More About NOAH Center in Stanwood, WA

In 1988, Northwest Organization for Animal Help first opened its doors at their original shelter location on Camano Island. Staff and volunteers worked hard to help animals in the community for more than ten years. In 2003 they moved to their current location in Stanwood, WA where they introduced their expanded adoption and new transfer and low-cost spay/neuter programs. Since then they have created partnerships with more than 40 different shelters to transfer animals at risk of euthanasia to their facility for the second chance they deserve. They have since developed the second highest volume spay/neuter clinic in Washington state. They have continued to expand their efforts to ensure healthy, adoptable and treatable animals across Washington state and beyond are given a second chance.

  • Help Spread the Word about NOAH’s affordable Spay & Neuter Clinic. The clinic is open seven days a week and has a program for low income pet owners who qualify. Not located near The NOAH Center? Click here to find other low-cost clinics in the Puget Sound area.
  • Volunteer! NOAH Center is always in need of new volunteers. You can check out their current openings and needs here.
  • Work at NOAH Center. For Run Those Dogs owner Jen Sewell, combining her passions and her vocation is the recipe for success and happiness. She lives by four words: do what you love. Check NOAH Centers current openings if a career in animal care is right for you.
  • Attend a NOAH fundraising event or make a donation. Their Laugh Your Tail Off and Music for the Animals events raised more than $250,000 to support the shelter, but that is still short of what they need to sustain their mission. Mark your calendars for next year’s Laugh Your Tail Off, set for Saturday, April 14, 2018.

Run Those Dogs thanks you for anything you do to increase awareness of International Homeless Animals Day and the spay/neuter solution today and all year long.
