We met Jasper at the recent Bark at Marymoor Park. Another Greyhound looking for a forever home.

We’re excited to say Jasper has since been adopted. If you’ve ever thought about adopting a Greyhound, check out Jeanna’s post about Movie, the Greyhound we adopted. We know a great rescue we can recommend for our friends in the Seattle-area.

Meet Movie, Our New Greyhound!

Introducing our new Greyhound, “Movie!”¬†We just adopted him last week, and I want to let you know about the great organization that brought us together.

They’re Royal Hounds Greyhound Adoption. I wrote about RHGA in April, explaining¬†their mission.¬†Now that I’ve personally gone through the adoption process with them, I can say without a doubt that Royal Hounds is the best rescue group I’ve come into contact with. The best.

And I don’t mean that to take away from anyone else. If you read our blog, you know how much I love dogs. I appreciate the tireless work and bottomless love found at all rescues. But, sometimes you just have give someone five gold stars for their efforts when you’ve personally experienced it.

I’m impressed by how thorough they are. RHGA really puts a lot of thought into matching you with your hound. They do extensive interviews and spend a lot of time educating and prepping people so they’re ready to give their dog the best care right from that first day.

If you wanna bring a Greyhound into your life, look up Royal Hounds!

So, that makes one more at our house. Movie joins Stewie, our first Pug and Parfait, another Pug who we fell in love with while fostering. We’ll keep sharing their stories here, along with the many dogs we at Sniff Seattle Dog Walkers have the privilege of walking.

‘Furry 5K’ Helps Seattle Animal Shelter Help The Animals

30 May
Dog 5K Race, Sniff Seattle, Animal Shelter Benefit

Dogs and people running together, helping a great cause. That’s what the Furry 5K¬†on Sunday, June 10 at 10:00 am at Seward Park is all about.

Every year in Seattle, thousands of pet lovers gather for this wonderful event.¬†And many of those people participate in the 5K race, running or walking with their dog and raising money for the¬†Seattle Animal Shelter’s Help the Animals Fund.

Try and imagine the vet bill for 7,000 strays and you’ll understand right away why the Seattle Animal Shelter holds this race. Seven thousand strays every year, many who arrive at the shelter sick, injured or abused.

So, raising the money is crucial. And anyone reading this can help. You can donate HERE!

If you want to run or walk in the race, pre-registration is $20 without the tee shirt and $25 with the tee shirt. To register on the day of the race, it’s $30.

We’ll be at the event ourselves. We hope you’ll stop by the Sniff Seattle tent and help us raise money for the Help the Animals Fund.

See ya there!

PUP Dog Rescue Has Adoption Events Today And Next Saturday

Check out PUP Dog Rescue‘s adoption event today in Kirkland from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at Dooley’s, 1421 Market Street. Your new dog could be there — waiting to pick you!

Yes, I said that the way I wanted. Finding a dog can be a little like finding a wand in the world of Harry Potter. “The wand chooses the wizard, Mr. Potter.”

If you can’t make it today, PUP is holding another event next Saturday at Redmond Market from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

See more about the PUP (People United for Pets) adoption events HERE!
