Prevent Homeless Pets (PHP) Needs us!
Prevent Homeless Pets needs YOUR help! As PHP increases the amount of animals they service they have outgrown their space and now needs our help to continue their mission! They have recently purchased a bigger building and are asking the community for help to reach their goal so they can continue helping us!!

As a nonprofit organization Washington State Law allows them to serve only two groups of animals:
- The first group is unowned animals including feral/stray/abandoned cats and dogs, as well as adoptable animals through other nonprofit rescues and shelters.
- The second group is privately owned pets of low income quilified individuals-based on federal income guidelines.
