About

Founded in 1897, Seattle Humane proudly promotes the human-animal bond by saving and serving pets in need. We are more than a shelter – Seattle Humane is a community resource center, providing adoption services, a pet food bank and support for pet owners, low-cost spay/neuter surgeries and wellness exams, humane education for all ages and more. All made possible through the support of a generous community.

Our Vision for the Future

We are proud to introduce Imagine a World - Seattle Humane's Storyline, an aspirational document intended to paint a clear picture of where we see ourselves in 2026 and beyond. The Storyline builds upon our rich past and present, using our greatest strengths to address the community’s evolving needs.

Whisker Wonderland

With winter gatherings still on a COVID hiatus, we won’t be holding our traditional winter photo event (formerly known as Santa Paws) at the shelter in 2021. But we’re excited to offer new ways to participate in Whisker Wonderland this year and share photos of your festive fur babies, starting December 7!



2022 Calendars on Sale

2022 is a big year for us and we can’t wait to welcome in the new year with our Seattle Humane 125th Anniversary calendar! Look for the calendars — just $15 each — on sale here at the shelter and at Mud Bay and Pet Pros stores. You can also place an order with our Donor Services team.
