Join Our Team!

Seattle Humane is more than a shelter, we’re a community resource center. We’re meeting the increasing need for pet owner support services, so families don’t have to choose between an overdue bill and a beloved family member. We’re training the next generation of veterinarians in our state-of-the-art medical center. We’re building a community of animal advocates through our volunteer and youth education programs.

The impact of Seattle Humane is life-changing, for the animals in our care and the people who love them. The thousands of animals that come through our doors each year receive best-in-class care, so they can be happy, healthy, well fed and reach their full potential in loving homes. Whatever the challenges may be, we’re here to lift up our community, always with compassion and the highest quality care.
