Mission Statement

Homeward Pet's mission is to transform the lives of cats and dogs in need through compassionate medical care, positive behavior training, and successful adoption while building a more humane community.


Founded in 1990 under the name "Hooterville Pet Safehaus". We started with simple goals: save and re-home cats and dogs and educate the public about spaying and neutering their pets.

In 2002 Hooterville became Homeward Pet Adoption Center. We are one of the largest no-kill shelters in the state of Washington! Each year Homeward helps over 1,300 cats and dogs find their forever home. Where do these animals come from? 50% are owner surrenders and the other 50% are animals we rescue from shelters who euthanize.

We remain small with a staff of 30 (half are part-time). And our 350+ volunteers are our backbone (thank you volunteers and donors!). Many of the rescued animals who come to Homeward get more love and attention in our shelter than they have ever known.

This is a great nonkill shelter. I really enjoyed working with the cats. Aside from doing the usual cleaning of cages/refilling of bowls, I got to play with the cats. It was wonderful to see them open up to me, and to transform the meaner, more stressed out kitties into affectionate and loving creatures. I could not recommend this shelter more.
