UPDATE: Event canceled — Cat adoption event Saturday at Rainier Community Center

Updated: This event has been canceled. The next cat adoption event is July 19 at the Phinney Ridge Neighborhood Association.


The Seattle Animal Shelter will host a cat adoptathon on Saturday, June 21, 2014, at the Rainier Community Center, located at 4600 38th Ave. S., Seattle. The event runs from noon to 2 p.m. and features numerous kittens and cats of different breeds. Cats available at this event have been living with foster parents, who are available at the event to share information about the personality and habits of the cats with potential adopters, helping to make a perfect match.

Also, for a limited time, the Seattle Animal Shelter will offer adult cat and critter adoptions for only $5 (up to $140 in savings), plus any applicable license fees. The special pricing promotion runs June 21-29. The public is encouraged to take advantage of the reduced adoption fees at this Saturday’s Fabulous Felines event.

“With our monthly neighborhood adoptathons, we hope to continue to spread the word about the joys and value of adopting shelter pets and saving lives. If you have room in your home and your heart for an orphaned animal, this is a great opportunity to come and see some of the wonderful pets available from our foster parents,” said Don Jordan, Seattle Animal Shelter director.

The special $5 adoption fee applies to adult cats only. Other adoption prices range from $45 to $145 (plus applicable license fees). The adoption fee includes:

  • Initial vaccinations
  • Deworming
  • Feline Leukemia testing
  • Certificate for free health exam at local veterinarians
  • Spay or neuter
  • Microchip

The Seattle Animal Shelter has a foster program to care for dogs, cats and critters in the safety and comfort of a volunteer’s home. Donations from the city’s “Help the Animals Fund” pay for veterinary care for these animals while they are being fostered.

The Seattle Animal Shelter is open Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. for adoptions and licensing. It is located at 2061 15th Ave. W. The phone number is 206-386-7387 (PETS). Animals available for adoption can be viewed online athttp://www.seattleanimalshelter.org.
