Get Involved

Get involved in the endless opportunities we offer here at Seattle Humane.  We love our community. And we love inviting you into our mission! Whether you want to volunteer, get to know us, or just love animals, you’re welcome here.

We’d love to have you learn more about Seattle Humane and visit some of the ‘behind-the-scenes’ areas of the shelter on a tour. We offer public tours on select Saturday afternoons. Check out our schedule here.

We can also schedule a private tour for your group Monday-Saturday, 11am-5pm. Please click here to submit a request.


You’re invited to events year round for the entire family and for the benefit of our pets. There’s always something happening. Check out our Event Calendar for what’s next!


You can work hands-on with animals in our shelter, in the office, or even foster pets at home. Come one time or come regularly. Take a look at our variety of volunteer opportunities.

Teen Programs

If you’re 13-17 years old, you’re invited to help animals at Seattle Humane. Our regular volunteer positions aren’t open to people under age 18, but we give you the next best thing!


MaxMobile travels all over King County bringing adoptable pets and animal education into our community in a 38-foot bright yellow bus. Schedule a visit

Youth Programs

Whether they’re visiting our pets or joining our day camps, your children will love coming right into the shelter for fun and learning. It’s good for our pets — and great for your kids!

Foster A Pet

More than 5,000 animals each year benefit from our foster program. Foster a pet through Seattle Humane and give a pet a temporary home while they’re waiting to be adopted.
