Seattle Animal Shelter and Lynnwood Honda invite you to “Fall in Love with a Pre-Owned Pet”

The Seattle Animal Shelter and Lynnwood Honda invite you to a free weekend barbecue and to “Fall in Love with a Pre-owned Pet,” this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Lynnwood Honda, 22020 Highway 99, Edmonds. Hop on in for the barbecue and meet some of the shelter’s adoptable animals, including bunnies, cats and other critters. You can also learn about shelter programs, including fostering pets in your home and how to obtain a pet license or low-cost spay/neuter surgery.

The animals at Saturday’s event will be available for on-site adoptions.

“The Seattle Animal Shelter has wonderful pets for families looking for bundles of love,” said Don Baxter, Seattle Animal Shelter manager of animal care and volunteers. “I welcome folks to come to Lynnwood Honda on Saturday to check out these amazing animals. You may meet the perfect new addition to your family, and it’s a great opportunity to save a life.”

Adoption fees range from $15 to $145, plus applicable license fees. 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)
  • Two cans of food

For Seattle residents, a two-year pet license must be purchased with each adoption. The license fee is $30 for cats and $40 for dogs. Critter adoptions do not require licensing.

In partnership with the Seattle Animal Shelter, from now through the end of the year, Lynnwood Honda will be making a donation to the shelter for every new car test drive.

“Lynnwood Honda continues to be a generous contributor to the Seattle Animal Shelter,” Baxter said. “We are grateful for their ongoing support as we try to find loving homes for our animals while joining Lynnwood Honda’s staff and customers for what is sure to be a fun event.”

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-PETS (7387), or view animals available for adoption online at www.seattleanimalshelter.org.
