Homelessness Prevention

Spay/Neuter saves lives!  Approximately 3 million dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters across the United States every year due to lack of space – 60,000 in Washington alone.  Although these shelters do their best to find loving and safe homes for these animals, adoptions are often not able to keep pace with the problem.  So a key component to  solving the dog and cat over-population issue is spay and neuter.  Effective spay/neuter  programs can literally saves millions of lives through prevention.

To date, we have performed over 40,000  spay/neuters, helping to lower the number of neglected and abandoned dogs and cats as well as the number of  these animals  entering shelters.

Pasado’s Safe Haven targets spay/neuter services where the need is greatest; our program is focused on providing free and reduced cost spay/neuter surgeries to income qualified populations who otherwise wouldn’t have access to this service. We currently operate three spay/neuter clinics serving Pierce, King and Snohomish Counties.  Our Pierce and King County clinics operate out of mobile units that are able to travel to rural and economically depressed communities, making it as convenient as possible for people to spay/neuter their pets.  In addition, our Snohomish County transport program targets the area along the Highway 2 corridor between Monroe and Index where resources are lacking.

We also have an innovative pet food bank program that allows income-qualified guardians who have spayed/neutered their dogs/cats to receive pet food for their animals.  We collect donated food and work with local “human” food banks to distribute the food to the  families  who are in the most need.  This program is key to helping those who would otherwise not be able to afford to keep their beloved companion animals in a loving home.  We believe that every companion animal deserves to stay in a home where they are loved.  By assisting those in need, we can avoid abandonment and shelter surrenders.
