Mission, Vision and Values
In June 2010, Coalition: HUMAnE’s (now Northwest Spay & Neuter Center) board and staff began the shared process of its first strategic planning project. Strategic planning is an organization’s process of defining its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy, including its capital and people. One of our key goals was to develop Vision and Values statements to pair with our clearly defined (and slightly refined) Mission Statement. As we finalize our three year vision plan in the upcoming months, the values outlined below will serve as compass points in our pursuit of a community with zero homeless pets.
Northwest Spay & Neuter Center promotes and provides affordable, high-quality spay and neuter services for cats, dogs, and rabbits in an effort to stop the killing of animals due to overpopulation.

In three years, Northwest Spay & Neuter Center is recognized as the leading regional resource for affordable, high-quality spay and neuter services. Community engagement and support are high. Our capacity is expanded significantly and we are providing efficient transportation solutions to help individuals and animal organizations eliminate cat and dog killing due to overpopulation.
Northwest Spay & Neuter Center aspires to practice these values, as central towards realizing our mission.
- Education — We actively promote spay and neuter as the solution to pet overpopulation. We advocate for and educate about responsible pet ownership.
- Compassion & Respect — We treat animals and people with compassion and respect.
- Quality — We inspire confidence by maintaining the highest standard of quality in the services we provide. We achieve this through specialization and expertise in our field.
- Adaptability — We continually work to innovate in order to provide quality service and animal care. We seek progressive solutions and new opportunities to achieve our mission.
Each value is practiced and realized on every level including the individual, community and institution. We recognize that the community is an integral part of Northwest Spay & Neuter Center and that we are an integral part of the community. Through community partnerships, we strive to ensure that there are no barriers to spay and neuter.
