Pet adoption is a critical part of our care of animals. According to the ASPCA , 6.5 million pets enter animal shelters in the United States each year. Tragically, only half of them are adopted.
At Seattle Humane, homeless pets stay with us until they are adopted — no matter how long it takes. We believe every animal deserves a chance for a good home.
Many times, pets are here to be rehomed because of behavior or health issues their owner could not handle. But with proper training and care, nearly all of our pets find happy homes. That’s why we prepare adoptive pet owners for success by helping you choose one that is right for your home environment and providing education and care that will get your relationship off to a good start.
