To our sponsors, donors, guests, staff, and volunteers: THANKS!

Our 19th Annual Black Cat Auction was a huge success! 

Every adoptable animal in the shelter (as of April 5) was sponsored,
and will get their picture in the paper! 

Our Second Chance Medical Rescue Fund got a huge boost! 

Our Live Auction was one of the best in years! 

Many of the sweet puppies who were with us that night have found good homes already!

To those who donated, volunteered, sponsored, or attended . . . . THANK YOU.
You make this work possible.

Our hearts break for those affected by the slide

Everett Animal Shelter is the regional animal shelter for Snohomish County and the primary animal welfare organization for Oso lost and found pets.

EVERETT - The Everett Animal Shelter is leading the efforts in providing animal related services and resources to the Oso residents affected by the slide.  The shelter is working with Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management and Red Cross as the primary animal welfare organization for people with lost or found animals from the Oso disaster.
People or businesses that have found a lost or abandoned dog or cat in the area of the slide are asked to bring the animal to the Everett Animal Shelter or to contact the shelter at 425-257-6000to provide information about the animals.  If they need assistance with transporting the animals contact Snohomish County Animal Control at 425-388-3440.
The shelter is also working closely with other rescue groups in the area who will cross post from the Everett Animal Shelter Facebook page to broaden the effort of reuniting pets with theirfamilies.  The shelter requests that all animal related information pertaining to the Oso disaster and all social media sites direct people to the Everett Animal Shelter.  The shelter is the first place people in Snohomish County go when looking for their pets.

At the shelter animals receive quality care, food and vet care as well as day long attention from the dedicated staff and volunteers.  The 72 hour stray hold will not apply to animals from this disaster, they will be held as long as necessary to reunite them with their family. 

The shelter is open 7 days a week, 10am to 5pm and is located at 333 Smith Island Rd, Everett, WA  98201.

You be my eyes, I'll be your heart

We have with us the most amazing pair of pups whom we must insist get adopted together if no loving owner steps forward to claim them. They were left on our property after hours. 

 Jersey is a large doberman and Little Bear is a terrier x chi. Little Bear is Jersey's SEEING EYE DOG!! Jersey the dobie is completely blind, but trusts Little Bear to guide him! 

Of course we will only place them together. This gorgeous two part package will delight anyone with a heart big enough for this amazing loving duo! 

To meet this darling pair, please call the shelter or email
