Mission Statement

Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF) supports the programs and initiatives of the Seattle Animal Shelter by engaging our community, increasing awareness and raising funds.


SASF is a non-profit organization comprised of volunteers dedicated to enriching and enhancing the lives of animals cared for by the Seattle Animal Shelter. SASF reflects the support that the Seattle community and Shelter volunteers have for this essential City agency.

The Seattle Animal Shelter helps thousands of dogs, cats and critters every year. SASF provides the Shelter with a new way to support the many services and programs it provides for animals and the Seattle community, including:

  • Veterinary care for Shelter animals
  • A foster care program to provide temporary housing for surrendered animals
  • Volunteer programs
  • Public education programs
  • Spay and neuter assistance for pets in low income families
  • Programs that support the needs of homeless and unwanted animals in the community.

Through innovative community events, outreach programs and volunteer opportunities, we help the Shelter fund creative solutions for immediate needs, pioneer new programs and build on what the City already provides for the Shelter’s current successes.

We’re placing the nation’s most pet-friendly city on the leading edge of humane animal advocacy. We hope you’ll join us!
