1st Annual Laugh Your Tail Off Comedy Show & Benefit Auction

lyto

The NOAH Center’s 1st Annual Laugh Your Tail Off Comedy Show & Benefit Auction, held at the Tulalip Resort Casino on Saturday, March 8th, was a tremendous success! KING 5 News Anchor Jake Whittenberg emceed the sold out event. The 2014 Laugh Your Tail Off Comedy Show & Benefit Auction raised a total of $90,945!

Local Comedians Ivan Decker, Jen Seaman, Neill McLaughlin and Damien Johnson were there to make sure everyone laughed and enjoyed the comedy portion of the evening!  There were three silent auction tables that featured items ranging from gift certificates for local restaurants to trips to Cabo San Lucas and Disneyland. 

All of The NOAH Center’s programs which include foster, transfer and spay/neuter benefitted from the outpouring kindness and generosity of our attendees.  Everyday pets in shelters are at risk of being euthanized because of a lack of space or resources to care for them. The NOAH Center has been partnering with animal shelters across the state of Washington for over 10 years.  The NOAH Center makes it a priority to help those animals at risk out of the shelter and transfer them to NOAH’s no-kill animal adoption center. The NOAH Center provides the necessary needed care for animals as they transition from shelter life into a loving forever home.

If you couldn’t make it to Laugh Your Tail Off this year, it’s not too late to make a difference! You can still make a donation to The NOAH Center at www.thenoahcenter.org or call (360) 629-7055. Laugh Your Tail Off was sponsored by Whidbey Island Bank, Sanctuary Are Center, Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital, Kibble & Prentice, Scuttlebutt Brewery and Challenger Ridge Winery.

World Spay Day 2014


Description: J:\ADMIN\Events\World Spay Day\World Spay Day Logo.jpg


As part of the international Spay Day campaign, The NOAH Center, along with local partner shelters and local veterinary clinics in Snohomish, King, Island and Skagit Counties participated in this year's World Spay Day on February 25th & 26th. NOAH was able to offer low-cost spay and neuter surgeries to individuals with pets in the community. The NOAH Center's Clinic team performed 15 dog & 72 cat spay/neuter surgeries. This annual effort helps end the suffering of unwanted and homeless animals in our community by preventing unplanned litters. Spaying and neutering is good for the community and a great way to help our furry friend’s live longer, healthier lives!

The NOAH Center’s 11th Annual Music for the Animals Auction & Concert, held at Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery on Saturday, August 24, was a tremendous success! KIRO 7 News Anchor Michelle Millman hosted the event along with auctioneer Kip Toner. The 2013 Music for the Animals Auction & Concert raised a total of $258,150.

Internationally known singer Chris Isaak, guest celebrity of the evening, led the festivities with a selection of hit songs. He was briefly accompanied at dinner by his manager’s Maltese dog, Rodney, after which he donated a guitar, which was auctioned for $2,000. The winning bidder was Tammy Powers who received the personalized autographed guitar.

The NOAH Center Animal Transfer Program will benefit greatly from the funds raised from the event. For 10 years, NOAH has been partnering with over 30 animal shelters across the state of Washington. Everyday pets in shelters are at risk of being euthanized because of a lack of space or resources to care for them. The NOAH Center makes it a priority to help those animals at risk out of the shelter and transfer them to NOAH’s no-kill animal adoption center. NOAH provides the necessary needed care for animals as they transition from shelter life into a loving forever home.

If you couldn’t make it to Music for the Animals this year, it’s not too late to make a difference! You can still make a donation to The NOAH Center at www.thenoahcenter.org or call (360) 629-7055.

NOAH celebrates 60,000 Spay/Neuter Surgeries!

60160 2

September 7th 2013 marked a significant day in the history of The NOAH Center’s Clinic.  We performed our 60,000th spay/neuter surgery and we couldn’t be more excited about it.  We would like to thank Erika, Anna, Dr. Birkett and our entire clinic team for all of the hard work over these past 10 years.  Without their impassioned work over these years, we wouldn’t be able to save as many lives and continue to serve our mission of stopping the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable and treatable homeless dogs and cats in Washington State.

Spay/Neuter Legislation in Washington State

The following is from www.savewashingtonpets.org. Visit their website to learn how you can help get this important legislation passed.

In Washington State, a survey of shelters revealed that over 60,000 cats and dogs were reported euthanized in Washington shelters in 2005. The number of animals actually euthanized is higher, since only one third of the survey recipients responded. Between 2001 and 2005, large shelters that consistently responded to the survey reported euthanizing between 45 and 48 percent of the animals brought to them each year. The euthanasia rate has remained at these levels for the last several years.

The Sensible Solution
Spay/Neuter. The most effective and humane way to reduce the number of animals dying in shelters is a targeted, statewide spay/neuter program.
We need spay/neuter legislation to save animals' lives. Learn more about the crisis of animal homelessness and the draft bill to help address this urgent problem. Let us know that you'll join us to get a bill passed in the 2009 legislative session.
The purpose of the bill is to provide funding to assist low-income owners of cats and dogs to obtain affordable spay/neuter surgeries, and to provide for spay/neuter surgeries on feral and free-roaming cats. The bill does not make spay/neuter surgery mandatory.
