Pawsitive Alliance helps homeless pets find loving homes through our Adoption Program and we prevent cats and dogs from becoming homeless through our Spay and Neuter Increase Program (SNIP) and Pet Retention Program because they all deserve their chance.

Pawsitive Alliance has facilitated the adoption over 8000 animals through our multi-shelter adoption events.
In addition to large scale adoption events hosted several times a year, our unique program helps harder to place animals find their forever homes. In April 2019, our #WhynotMEpets program saw its 250th adoption of an animal that had a barrier to adoption such as age, breed, behavior or disability. For animals like Rush, a 9 year old cat with a unique urinary condition, the #WhynotMEpets program provides the exposure to help find loving homes. Rush is a rare long time member of our program and has been waiting for her special person since 2011. Most #WhyNotMePets are adopted within days of being featured through social media and on KIRO TV.
Pawsitive Alliance knows that, while love of our pets transcends socioeconomic boundaries, unfortunately, access to affordable services for pets does not. Across many areas of Washington state, low income pet owners and caretakers do not have access to affordable and convenient spay/neuter services. We are currently working in both Grant and Adams Counties, in rural central Washington, to help provide services. Since 2009, Pawsitive Alliance has facilitated over 3000 spay/neuter surgeries.
In addition to low cost spay neuter services, Pawsitive Alliance has been working in the Seattle area to keep homeless pet caretakers and their pets together. We have collection bins located throughout the metro area to collect pet care items and we provide free pet identification tags at local veterinary clinic events. The new Pawsitive Lifeline fund provides veterinary services to homeless pet caretakers.
