Mission Statement

The Seattle Animal Shelter fosters safe, healthy and caring relationships between people and animals in our community.

Description

The Seattle Animal Shelter fosters safe, healthy and caring relationships between people and animals in our communities, and just last year we adopted out 764 cats, 333 dogs and 158 critters; reunited 617 lost pets with their owners; helped 144 additional animals in need find appropriate help and investigated more than 1,000 animal cruelty cases.

Our services include:

  • Investigating animal cruelty, neglect and abuse
  • Licensing all cats, dogs, potbellied pigs and pygmy goats
  • Educating residents about responsible pet ownership
  • Caring for the city's lost and unwanted animals
  • Reuniting lost animals with their owners
  • Adopt orphaned animals to suitable homes
  • Administering a low-cost spay and neuter clinic

SAS engages over 500 volunteers annually who donate their time and skills by caring for SAS animals at the shelter and in their homes (foster care volunteers), promoting adoptions, outreaching to the community about importance of licensing their pets, organizing fund and donation drives, and much more!
