Animal Services & Resources : Surrendering Your Pet

Surrendering Your Pet

An appointment is required to surrender your animal. Please call (425) 649-7561 or email [email protected] to learn more about our intake process or schedule an appointment.

Seattle Humane requires intake appointments so our staff and volunteers can collect medical history and behavior traits about the incoming pet.

Many unwanted animal behaviors can be corrected, enabling pets to successfully remain in the family. If you would like information about training or other solutions for keeping your pet, please call us at (425) 641-0080. We will be happy to assist you or refer you to others who can help.

We request a continuing care donation when an animal is admitted to us. The suggested continuing care donation range is $45-$205, although it is not required to contribute this full amount. All donations are greatly appreciated and help to offset a portion of the cost of caring for the thousands of animals we receive each year.

Callback Option / Re-claiming Your Pet

Seattle Humane recognizes the decision to re-home your companion animal can be difficult to make. In an effort to assist people having to make this decision, we've created a callback option. With a minimum of $250 continuing care contribution, you will have the opportunity to come back to reclaim your pet if we are not able to place them. Litters under six months of age have a minimum of $300 incoming contribution per litter.
