Most of you know by now, but I have been involved with The NOAH Center for 8 years now -- 7 years as a volunteer and this last year as an employee. It is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done! NOAH is an animal adoption center and low-income spay/neuter clinic, so we try to help with both ends of the animal overpopulation program. We travel all over the state to overcrowded shelters and bring animals here, helping the other shelters with their overcrowding and saving lives that might not have a chance otherwise. Once they are here, they are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and then we find them a new home! Some animals that are too young to be spayed or neutered enter our foster program (along with some animals that may require additional care, rehabilitation or socialization) where they can get the additional time they need before they are adopted.
NOAH is near and dear to my heart, and they are involved in a month long fundraiser where if they raise the most money, they will win $50,000! I am setting up my own fundraising page to help them achieve that goal. Please donate a little or a lot to help us win this challenge and help more animals than ever!

We are in it to win it, but we need YOUR help! We are in a competition with shelters and animal welfare groups across the country to see who can raise the most funds for their organizaiton. The grand prize? A $50,000 grant and all the funds we raise! With your help we can win the grand prize and save the lives of more homeless cats and dogs in the Northwest.
Since opening our doors in 2003, The NOAH Center has been on a mission to stop the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable and treatable homeless cats and dogs in Washington State. Through our transfer program we have partnered with 24 counties and 33 shelters to save the lives of more than 25,000 cats and dogs. Our adoption program has matched over 25,000 pets with a loving family and forever home and we have been working to reduce pet overpopulation with our spay and neuter clinic where we have performed more than 75,000 operations. With the help of our generous foster families, we have also been able to save over 4,000 puppies, kittens, nursing mothers and special needs animals through our foster program. But our work doesn't stop here!
A $50,000 grant would help The NOAH Center continue our lifesaving work. With $50,000 we could fund nearly 850 spay and neuter surgeries. we could save 800 cats and dogs through transfer and adoption and an estimated 125 litters of puppies and kittens would be saved through foster.
Please help us save the lives of more homeless cats and dogs. Your donation makes all the difference in the world to them. Thank you.
