Adoption Process

There are two ways to adopt from Seattle Humane! 

Please note that many of our pets are in foster homes, waiting for new families. If you are interested in a pet that is currently in a foster home, fill out an online questionnaire and an adoption advisor will contact you to arrange a meeting.
