Adopt A Pet From Seattle Area Shelters: See New Local Dogs, Cats & More

Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Seattle community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in the Seattle area are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Washington — many of whom are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new friend is at Friends Of The Animals Foundation, where Rowdy the cat is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in permanent homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Skyy, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
