Seattle Animal Shelter “Home for the Holidays” promotion extended to Dec. 31

The Seattle Animal Shelter is extending its adoption promotion through Dec. 31, 2014, hoping you will help give homeless animals a “Home for the Holidays.” During this winter promotion, you can adopt a pet for only $15, plus applicable two-year license fees.

Dogs, cats and critters at the shelter are waiting to find homes, and shelter staff are hoping this promotion will encourage potential pet owners to adopt. Both in-shelter and foster animals at least 6 months old qualify for the special pricing, although some high-interest animals are excluded.

“While many animals have found new families during this promotion, there are still many more pets at the shelter and in foster care that are waiting for their forever homes,” said Don Jordan, Seattle Animal Shelter director. “If you have room in your home and your heart, you can give an animal the greatest gift this season and save a life.”

With regular adoption prices of up to $145 (plus applicable license fees), this promotion offers up to $130 in savings. The adoption fee includes:

  • Certificate for free health exam at local veterinarians
  • Initial vaccinations
  • Spay or neuter
  • Microchip
  • Deworming
  • Feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus testing (cats only)
  • Sample pouch of food

For Seattle residents, a two-year pet license must be purchased with each adoption. The license fee is $27 for cats and $37 for dogs. Critter adoptions do not require licensing.

The adoption discount is made possible with funding from the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation.

The Seattle Animal Shelter, located at 2061 15th Ave. W., is open Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. for adoptions and licensing. For more information, call 206-386-7387 (PETS), or view animals available for adoption online at
