All pet fees waived Oct 2-4 at the Seattle Humane Adoption Blitz

Wednesday, September 30, 2015


Seattle Humane’s annual Adoption Blitz means hundreds of families can adopt a dog, cat, puppy, kitten, rabbit or other furry critter without the typical adoption fee. Fees are waived for all pets in the care of Seattle Humane in Bellevue for three days only, Friday, October 2nd through Sunday, October 4th. 

"Our mission at Seattle Humane is to make owning a companion pet accessible to all King County-area residents," says Shelter Director Lauren Hilaman. "Although our usual fees are low, Adoption Blitz helps us reach even more wonderful animal lovers who want to open their hearts and homes to an animal that needs a family."

Each year, hundreds of pets are adopted during Adoption Blitz. Adoption Manager Nicolette Voigt points out that Seattle Humane's Adoption Advisors carefully vet each adopter by conducting one-on-one interviews and reviewing questionnaires. "The animals are always our first priority and we want to make sure each one of them is going to a loving family that can care well for them. We pride ourselves on our ability to make successful matches," continues Voigt. 

All dogs and cats ar e vaccinated, microchipped, health-checked and spay/neutered. Dogs are temperament-tested and most dog adoptions come with a six-week obedience training course. All dogs and cats 13 years of age and under will receive one month of free pet insurance. Potential adopters can preview adoptable animals at the Seattle Humane website and download a pre-adoption questionnaire.

Seattle Humane is located at 13212 SE Eastgate Way in Bellevue (near the junction of I-90 and I-405), and is open from 11am to 8pm Friday - Saturday and 11am to 6pm on Sunday.

Please note that collars, leashes and pet carriers are not provided. You can bring your own or purchase these items at Seattle Humane, with proceeds benefiting the animals in SM's care.
