NW Seattle Newsletter | September 2020

Virtual Home Improvement Workshop | September 30th 2020

Back by popular demand! You’re thinking about Selling your home and now you may be wondering, what are the best improvements I can make to obtain the highest return on investment.

The good news for anyone hoping to sell their home in the near future is that the improvements that add the most value to your home tend to be the least expensive. If you are considering selling in five years or more, it may make sense to make bigger improvements that will maximize value when you decide to sell. Plus you’ll get to enjoy the improvements while you are still living in the home.

We know that even the smallest of improvements help with the sale-ability of a home. This may equate to a higher sales price or just a faster sale. Choosing the right improvements is where many homeowners go wrong. They make improvements that, unfortunately, really don’t matter to Buyers.  We can help you prevent well-intended, but unnecessary improvements. Let us guide you on what improvements would make the most sense for your home, timeline and budget.

Adoptable Pets at the Seattle Animal Shelter

Meet Loki!

Loki is in a foster home, and is currently not at the shelter. Looking to lose some of those work-from-home pounds? You are not alone! Loki here is looking for a fitness friend and diet savvy household to help him shake off some of his weight. He’s a senior guy so is looking for someone to join in on at his pace, which is slow and steady wins the race! With age comes a few health matters that will need to be addressed and continued to be cared for. He’s hanging onto his money-maker, smirk and smile creator which is his ONE whole tooth! Due to his dental status he will require his special diet plan to consist of a wet food only. When he’s not getting his steps in, his favorite thing to do is curl up and nap next you. Quiet and well behaved in the home, he’s a great work from home companion. He can be slow warming up to new people but once he does, he’s a sweet, funny little guy. At this age, he prefers the company of those similar. So an adult only, pet free environment will be the best place to start up his gym. Leisurely walks, guided by him, are helping to melt the weight right off – it’s important though that he sets realistic goals and doesn’t push himself too hard. So get your leotards and sweatbands on and come meet Loki!

Meet Jenny!

This kitty is not at the shelter, but is waiting patiently in a foster home to meet you. Detailed application instructions are below. Jenny is an adorable little whirlwind of a kitten. She was found as a stray and brought to the shelter, and has been living with a foster family of two adults, one 6-year-old child, and 2 elderly cats for the last several weeks. At about 3-4 months old, Jenny is 80% play and 20% affection. She enjoys playing with people in her gentle, silly way – chasing laser pointers, pouncing on balls and stretching her body out as long as she can to reach the toys you dangle in front of her. She is excellent at entertaining herself by discovering stray headphone cords and phone chargers and batting them around. Jenny also loves belly rubs and purrs like crazy when you pet her. She has just started settling down enough in her foster home to curl up quietly in bed with a human of choice, making sure to give their hands a thorough bath with her tongue before sleep. She never bites or scratches. She is fairly jumpy in a new setting and will need some time and patience to get comfortable. Loud noises and sudden movements make her nervous in a new environment. Jenny is young and healthy. The SAS vet believes she had a viral infection in one eye, which has since resolved, but caused some cloudiness and eyelid changes. Her eye doesn’t seem to bother her or hinder her playing. Jenny will thrive in a safe and loving permanent home. Her sweet playfulness and soft snuggling will bring joy to any cat-lover.

Meet Prince Charming!

Meet Prince Charming, a handsome, curious boy guinea pig! He’s very active, loves eating his fresh salads and running around for lots of exercise! Prince Charming is looking for his new forever home!

Meet Tippi!

Tippi is in a foster home, and is currently not at the shelter. Please find info below on how to adopt her, thanks. Hello, my name is Tippi, and I’m a medium sized 3 year old mixed breed pooch who’s looking to be part of your home. I’m a super smart girl – crate trained, muzzle trained, house trained. I know lots of commands and love learning new ones. I love going on walks, sniffing the outdoors, learning new things for treats, getting pets, and napping on the couch or in the sun. I’m looking for a quiet, adult-only home with prior dog experience that does limited entertaining. I wouldn’t do well in an apartment, a house with a fenced yard would be ideal. I’m ok with other dogs and cats. Strangers make me very nervous if they get close on walks or visit my home. Bunny rabbits also get me super excited. I’m at my very best when walking in less busy areas with people willing to work with me when I get anxious about these challenges. The Seattle Animal Shelter staff and my fosters have been helping me work on these issues with great progress and could talk to you more about them.
